How to Style Dungarees

If I was asked to sum up my style then I’d probably say it takes on a toddler-esque vibe. My wardrobe is full of random prints and novelty accessory items – like this bag I picked up last year – which all seem to result in a ‘my toddler dressed themselves today look’.¬†And I’m completely okay with that. I guess it’s my ‘thing’, along with acting like a toddler too – oops.

I’m all for comfy clothing, as I HATE the thought of having to sit all day in something tight and uncomfortable, even if it does look good, I probably wouldn’t bother wearing it. Smock dresses, culottes and dungaree style dresses make frequent appearances in my wardrobe, and if I’m ever having mental breakdown over what to wear you can guarantee I’ll turn to a fail safe combo of a striped top (always) and a dungaree dress, or culottes and one of my H&M crop t-shirts.

I’ve long been a fan of dungarees, my younger snaps prove it, and with far more dungaree dresses than I care to admit I own, I decided it was time to foray into the world of full length dungarees. Not a move I took lightly though of course. Being on the smaller side (I struggle to find jeans that fit – I even have to roll up petite lengths) so I knew finding a pair that suited my frame wasn’t going to be an easy task.

However, New Look came up trumps with this petite offering, and although I had to do a little tailoring they actually fit pretty well for a more budget pair. I ended up pairing them with a plain t-shirt with lace detail sleeves from Topshop and my white converse. Because what screams more toddler than running around a field on a sunny day in your converse?! Nothing at all.
