Monday morning and it’s back to the grind.
I’m currently sitting with a cup of coffee (and some Belvita biscuits) trying to fight off the cold 2 degree weather outside.
Contemplating all those tough decisions.. do I want a teddy coat or a check trench? Sock boots or biker boots?
Where is my style going?
As you will see on my Instagram (make sure to click the link and follow, wink wink) I either dress like a 70s throwback with all the roll necks and a-line skirts going.. or i’m in my comfies, the sports leisurewear.
My weight is a little heavier than normal and i’m not dressing confidently. With this in mind I have been styling out my dungarees a lot more recently by pairing them with a more formal shoe and items like this H&M jumper – which is now £5 in the sale – to try and remain age appropriate, but comfortable.
I love dungarees and some people make them look so effortless. I’m looking for a slim fit pair to try and achieve a smarter look over winter but before that, it’s time to get back on The BBG… tonight, i’ll do it tonight (I promise, although i’ve been saying this for weeks)
I think dungarees are one of those brilliant wardrobe staples that never really go out of fashion. The cut, the colour maybe.. but they will always come back around and you will be thankful to have them!
Dungarees can be tailored, slim and smart with a (roll neck) blouse or crisp shirt underneath, worn oversized and androgynous with a brogue or chunky boot or with a band tee and sports shoe. Heels, trainers or flats, depending on the fit of your desired pair you can really make them a stand out piece and also a great piece to invest in. I LOVE the Free People dungaree collection. Cord, a line, kick flare. They are just the pinnacle of dungaree sophistication!
The issue is finding the right style and colour for you. I tend to choose a cropped pair due to my short stature and I also tend to go for black as it works well with the rest of my wardrobe but I absolutely adore a blue wash on other people.
If you know of somewhere to buy a petite, black, flim fit pair.. show me the way!
