Dungarees Three Ways

There’s no escaping dungarees this spring/summer, they’re everywhere. So, if you want to be on-trend, you need to get onboard with this latest fashion moment, and get yourself some dungarees.

But how do you wear them? Our guide shows you dungarees three ways – three ways to wear your overalls.

We’ve chosen a simple pair of turn-up denim dungarees from H&M (£29.99), and styled them up for three occasions – park life, lunch date, and night out.

Dungarees might seem like a casual item in your wardtobe, but fressed up they can take you on a night out or a sophisticaed lunch date or meeting.

PARK LIFE

We’ll start with our Park Life look – the most casual of our dungarees three ways outfits. Walking the dog, off for a stroll, or a wander, you will soon realise that your cosy dunagrees are stylish, comforable and keep you warm – no cold will get near your midriff in dungys!

For a stroll in the park, team your dungarees with a cosy sweater in a lovely fresh spring lemon (£15, BHS), a waterproof raincoat (£60, JOY) – beware of those April showers, some comfy pumps in a bright colour; these Converse are fab, (£45, Schuh), and a cross-body bag (£49, J by Jasper Conran @ Debenhams) for ease.

LUNCH DATE

Dress those dungarees up for a lunch date or a meeting. Bring out the sophistication with this, the most classic of our dungarees three ways looks. Keep the colour palette in muted tones and pastels, and team them with a classic white shirt (£14.99, H&M), a cute pastel blazer (£24.99, H&M), some low-heeled muted shoes (£39.99, New Look), a sturdy shopper to keep your essentials in (£29.99, H&M), and a simple pair of earrings (£2.99, New Look).

NIGHT OUT

Dungarees looks great on a night out. For the final dungarees three ways look, we’ve teamed our dungys with a glittery crop top (£19.99, H&M), which will look fab peeking out from under then. We’ve added some killer heels in gorgeous grey suede (£65, Schuh), a leather-look bicker jacket (£32.99, New Look) for attitude, and a cute clutch with a message (£4.50, Claire’s)!

How will you wear your dungarees?

Spring trends top ten

It’s officially spring. Actually, it’s officially British Summer Time, but let’s not get too excited. Last time we stepped outside it was freezing. But…there’s no time like the present to get your wardrobe prepped for the warmer days.

So, we’re talking spring trends today – and our top ten. The spring trends we think you will want to indulge in, and those you should start bringing into your outfits now.

1.Orange

It’s bold, it’s bright, and it’s everywhere. We’re told orange is a difficult colour to wear, but we say it’s how you wear it that counts. It’s the boldest of spring trends to embrace, and we reckon it looks at its very best on a bright orange dress. If a small splash of orange suits you better, try  simple top. It looks brilliant on holiday, with a sunshine glow.

2.Denim

Denim is a safe fallback – we all have our favourite pair of jeans. But branch out with your denim this season – try a denim shirt, or playsuit, or skirt, as well as your classic jeans and jackets. And step out of your skinnies – try some on-trend flares!

3. Ruffles

Ruffles are a wee bit awkward, but they don’t need to be huge. Go big if you like, or just embrace a simple little ruffle on a sleeve, or a bikini.

4. Snakeskin

Animal prints are a perennial fashion favourite – this season it’s the turn of snakeskin as the print to have. Be bold and wear it all over a dress, or do it subtly on shoes or a bag.
