If you love 90s fashion, I am sure you already have a dungaree or two in your wardrobe. Needless to say, they have been extremely popular this AW and were seen all over the catwalks at London Fashion Week as well as on big celebrities names such as Alexa Chung, Pixie Lott, Olivia Palermo, Blake Lively to only name a few. Which is why when Boohoo contacted me asking what would be the one trend I wanted to wear more of in 2016, all the voices in my head sang in unison “dungarees please” because let’s face it, making fashion resolutions is something we can actually stick to. Yes, yes I vowed to go to the gym more and stop eating chocolate every day, but fashion resolutions are much more fun and realistic.
Dungarees seem to have become a step up from the playsuit we often saw being styled over the summer, and this childhood staple has now been revivified in many different styles for the chillier season, in classic denim or in cute pinafore dresses, all of which scream retro and modern in the new-old-fashioned-way. Trying to make dungarees work and seem more fashionable than they actually are may seem a bit redundant, but they are quick and easy, not-too-formal, a tad geeky and a fun look that can be paired with almost every top you already have in your drawers- white or stripy t-shirts work well as do roll necks, off-the-shoulder or chunky knits. I chose to pair mine with a black roll-neck as well as black tights and ankle boots whilst adding a bit of colour with the gorgeous bright fuchsia bag I have in my closet. If you want to rock yours during the winter, just add a cute overcoat and you're good to go!
With 90s fashion going nowhere fast, it’s time to embrace the trends that are being awakened and have fun with them. And with regards to my 2016 Fashion Resolutions, aside from dungarees, I will also try to wear more colour (if you've been around for a while you will know I love black way too much), add more print, give flares a try, play more with hairstyles and (wish me luck for this one) wear less make-up every day. Let’s see how that last one pans out.
What do you think of the dungarees trend? Do you have any Fashion Resolutions for 2016? Let me know below!
Thanks for reading beauties and have a nice rest of the week!
