Dungarees or overalls were incredibly popular in the 80’s and when I was a child in the 90’s, but they since phased out of fashion. I used to wear dungarees when I was about 1-4 years old as apparently I loved them, although I am thinking this was something to do with my mums love for them, ha ha. But, I am so glad they have come back into fashion! As with everything that makes its way back into our lives, it gets updated and changed, so that’s why I love these. I got these G-Star denim dungarees in the sale at ASOS online last week and fell in love with them. I love the fact that they are skinny and slouchy with bracer/suspender style straps instead of the classic full denim back. This new twist on the dungarees is perfect! Not to mention the wash of these G-Star overalls is amazing. It’s so blue and faded, but with whiskers and acid washing in all of the right places.
I am not really a fan of pairing denim dungarees with jumpers or long sleeve tops underneath as I find that can look quite dated, so the way I like to wear them is with a bandeau top. I also bought this white bandeau top from ASOS with the order, it was only £5 so it was a great deal. I didn’t include it in Monday’s new purchases post, but I think it suits these dungarees really well and gives off that easy going ready for summer vibe that I like. I was really conscious about wearing it though because I’m never the type of girl that likes to show off my stomach or back too much because I’m not comfortable with it, so I felt quite naked here, but since my stomach is covered by the front of the overalls, that was fine. I just need to get used to the back or possibly purchase a bandeau top that’s longer and not cropped.
I kept everything else really simple with the white lace up trainers/sneakers which I purchased from River Island years and years ago (which have also remained incredibly white considering their age!) and some variations of gold and bronze bracelets which were bought at ASOS as well, last year. I think keeping things minimal sometimes is definitely the way forward. It helps make certain parts of the outfit the focal point and I wanted the concentration to be on these G-Star dungarees. I didn’t think they would work very well for me at first, but when I tried them on I completely fell in love with them! They are just beautiful! I did take these photos during the evening when it was a little cooler, but I was still really hot in this outfit ha ha, thanks to this heatwave! So, what do you think of my outfit? Do you like the dungarees? Comment and let me know!
