A few years ago I wouldn’t have dreamed of wearing dungarees. They were dangerous territory – would I look pregnant? Or just plain silly? Ironically I never even actually wore a pair when I was pregnant.
But all that’s changed now. They’re everywhere. In that funny way that fashion has, dungarees have crept back from beyond the pale to completely OK. I’m a total convert.
Last year I dipped my toe into the water with a relaxed, summery pair. But they just don’t work in autumn and winter. Come September I don’t want that washed-out, baggy look. I want dark denim in a neat, flattering fit.
These dungarees from White Stuff are the perfect pair for autumn. Here’s why I love them:
They’re super flattering. Because they’re quite slim fitting they do a great job of holding everything in and actually make me look slimmer. My baggy summer dungarees definitely don’t do that.
They’re smart, yet completely practical and relaxed. So far I’ve worn mine to a steam rally, a soft play party and lots of coffee dates. They hold their shape and make me feel neat and pulled together – even when I’m having to run around after my boys! I’m still the only one wearing them on the school run, but they’re quite subtle and not at all outlandish.
They’re fun. I don’t take my clothes too seriously and always like to add a quirk to my outfit. You can never look boring in dungarees. This pair creates a neat shape with a sense of humour. In fact, they were the perfect outfit for my annual ride on these wonderful steam-powered Gallopers!
So, are you tempted by dungarees this autumn? I’d love to know!
