I have been yearning for some dungarees since their comeback last summer. But I have been niggled by the concern that I’m too old for them… and that I’ll end up resembling Huckleberry Finn!!!
I didn’t own a pair in the nineties… I can’t remember why!?? Maybe that’s why I am lusting over them now!
I lean towards boyish shapes and relaxed clothes, so they appeal to my intrinsic style. I am addicted to jumpsuits, so perhaps the dungaree is the obvious next step for me in the ‘all-in-one’ trend?
I couldn’t resist ordering a range of styles from ASOS to try on at home… and I fell in love with these Superdry Skinny Leg Emmins Dungarees. With soft stretchy denim, they are incredibly comfy. So what if I look like a farmer – I’m a happy Huckleberry Finn!!
I predict I’ll be wearing these dungarees for most of the (British!) Summer and well into Autumn/Winter.
Day-to-day, they are perfect for throwing on over a T-shirt (either plain or Breton) and teaming with my Birkenstocks, Vans or Adidas Superstars. I also think they look pretty cool styled slightly smarter over a crisp white shirt with brogues… perhaps for a relaxed lunch date or day out. I may go one step further and wear with heels and a sleeveless top for a funky, evening look… (photo to follow, if I go there!)
I’d love to know your thoughts on the great Dungaree Debate – I imagine a bit like Marmite; you either love or hate them? If you are not a fan of the denim variety, then there other variations to try. Perhaps the pinafore jumpsuit is more your style or even dungaree shorts? Here are some others that I love…
