Everyone's Wearing: Dungarees

I'm sure you remember wearing them as a child or seeing photographs of your mum wearing them in the 60's and 70's. Well this vintage garment is back and fashion savvy women can't get enough of them. Its no mean feat to look stylish wearing dungarees, they are certainly a hard trend to pull off. Despite this, you just can't seem to escape them lately...on the catwalk, in shops, on the street. Love them or hate them, this 70's revival trend is set to continue throughout 2015. We saw lots of 70's throwbacks on the SS15 catwalks, so dungarees might just be the perfect wardrobe staple to see you through the next few months.
Some of the most stylish celebrities have got on board with this trend.
L - R Selena Gomez, Olivia Palermo, Alexa Chung, Fearne Cotton
Blake Lively, Alessandra Ambrosio, Kate Bosworth, Emma Watson
To style your dungarees, I suggest keeping colours simple. Opt for a Breton stripe top, or a classic black or white tee or a cotton shirt. Less is more, you don't want to overcomplicate the look. For 90's throwback styling I suggest wearing a slip-on sneaker, pumps/sandals/espadrilles will keep the look casual and heels will make the look super glam. Take inspiration from these street style stars.
I have found some comparable designer/highstreet dungarees, so whether you wish to spend or save on this trend there are dungarees out there for every price point.
What do you think of this trend? Which celebrity styled their look best?
