Men’s dungarees are trending, just in time for festival season, adding a touch of utility to your spring summer wardrobe.
Styling should always be front of mind when trying a trend for the first time, and dungarees need to be styled with a fashion lens to transport you from the farm to the streets.
I have fond memories of wearing dungarees; as a baby, my mum was never afraid of kit me out in a little denim number.
If you want to be as stylish as my younger self, here is my guide to men’s dungarees:
WAYS TO WEAR
There are many tops you can decide to wear your dungarees. A basic tee, a statement polo or a shirt. For the colder evenings, consider wearing knitwear or a sweatshirt for a casual feel.
My ultimate favourite is layering with a hoodie. The hoodie ruled winter as a key layering piece and it is not going anywhere this season.
For styling, you have three options:
1. ONE SHOULDER
Match the casual attitude of your overall by styling it with only one shoulder strap
Stay secure and keep both straps locked in
Undo both straps and fold the front flap down
Denim is the obvious choice to start. Add a bit of variety in your colour option, the wash of the denim and the detailing.
Your next decision is the length. For warmer days free your legs with a shorter silhouette.
or go classic with a longer length.
Do you think you can pull off men’s dungarees?
