Have you noticed everyone’s digging out the old-school denim dungarees for SS15? And whether they’re that skirt style, acid-wash or picture-perfect blue, anything goes this season.
We’re taking our inspiration for the dungaree trend from contemporary style icon Alexa Chung. The British model and TV presenter makes heads turn no matter what she’s wearing, and if Alexa is wearing it so are we.
Whatever you fancy channelling, be it florals or a frayed hem, the list is positively endless. Check out the latest offerings from the high street now with Fashion North’s top five picks of the best dungarees to sport when the sun is shining.
The online retailer ASOS is our first port of call as it has so much to offer, and for all girls 5’3 and under, there’s no need to shy away from the dungaree trend whatsoever. The brand’s Petite Utility Dungaree Playsuit (£38) is perfect for the welcoming warmth of spring in classic black.
And curvier girls, don’t ever feel like you can’t sport the current trend, ASOS Curve has you covered. The Blue Dungaree Playsuit in sizes 18 to 28 (£22) is the perfect transitional piece to team with a turtleneck in the spring and a simple vest-top in the summer.
Let’s be honest, white is one of the more trickier tones to wear, but if you’re determined to pull off the clean shade this summer then look to New Look’s Cream Denim Frayed Hem Dungarees (£24.99). Perfect festival dungarees right there.
If you’re ready to move away from the standard dosage of denim, then maybe you’ll want to check out Topshop’s Fable Print Silk Dungarees (£110). They may not be the most versatile and the cheapest, but if you’re willing to part with your cash for a statement piece – that’s 100% silk, FYI – this might do just the trick.
Lastly, thanks to H&M you can sport two trends in one with these Patterned Dungarees (£29.99). With the wide-legged fit, you won’t be shy of the 70s trend that encapsulates SS15. Kick-start your 70s love affair if you haven’t already by teaming these dungarees with a simple pussy-bow blouse and sky-high wedges.
