Monday Musings – D is for Dungarees

There is one item of clothing that women love to wear and men love to hate on when we wear them – dungarees.  If you don’t already own a pair of these toddler approved pieces then I bet you’ve thought about buying some, only to be put off by said other half for telling you you’re dressed like a child!

When I want to switch things up from my favourite pair of jeans, you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be reaching for my trusty Primark dungarees.  I found them on the last of the sale rail and whilst they were not a purchase I’d put much thought into, my god they’ve been a very good buy.  Unfortunately their lifespan is coming to an end, the black denim that they began with is now a very washed out, faded grey (in not a particularly nice or cool way), and the slightly distressed, worn in look but still brand is most definitely just worn to pieces now.  So, it’s time to find a new pair, which is much easier said than done.

Just like searching for the perfect fitting jeans, tracking down a good pair of dungarees is proving tough.  I thought I’d hit the jackpot with a pair from Madewell, in the sale on Zalando, with an extra discount code too!  They were just the right shade of blue, skinny enough without looking like you were squeezing into a size too small, cut off, raw hem detailing, you name it, they had it and all for £65.  Unfortunately the much anticipated arrival was short lived.  I can’t put finger on it but they just did have me tearing off the tags.

Alongside the perfect pair of jeans, dungarees are the one item I get asked about by personal styling clients again and again.  So with soo many of us searching out this one-piece denim wonder, I’ve rounded up some of my high street favourites, in the sale and full price, and available right now.

  1. I love a dungaree, but it has to be a certain blue denim. The only problem for me is I can’t really wear them as Im short (5’4″). I stick to jeans but would love to find a brand that look good on my shape and height, *eye roll*.
    You look fab in the washed black dungas on insta!
