Striped Top: H&M
Red Satchel Bag: eBay
Bowler Hat: Urban Outfitters
The child in me squealed excitedly when I spotted a range of dungarees (or overalls) in the high street stores. What better way to bring the 80s/90s back this spring/summer than to gallop around in these denim gems? Granted, they're not to everyone's taste but it is a clothing item destined for a lazy summer's day, oui?
Unlike the ones we may have been used to during our toddler years, these ones have been modernised for those who are still a big kid at heart... i.e. me. It's a lot more form fitting, the denim wash is flattering and the structure of it caters better for the feminine body.
Aside from the black bowler hat (essential to look more 'grown-up' and more like Charlie Chaplin) I decided to keep it classic by channeling a nautical/Parisian theme by working with a blue, red and white palette. It's the ultimate colour combination for spring and also a nice comfortable step away from my monochrome obsession.
I'm not the best of friends with horizontal stripes and our relationship is worse if it lands on a day that I feel bloated. Those pesky stripes are usually the culprit for making things worse. However, these dungarees acts as the peace maker. The main body of the top is covered by the denim and helps to separate it into smaller sections.
I'm excited to experiment these with some other shirts/blouses/tops with different cuts. The possibilities are endless and luckily, I have the whole of spring/summer to figure it out!
What do you think of the dungarees/overalls trend?
Will you be wearing it this summer?
