Dungarees have been making a huge comeback for a couple years now — if you haven’t gotten on board yet, now’s your chance. Some of you may find it difficult to reinstate this 80s & 90s trend back into your wardrobe, but I’m here to help. Not only is this vintage fad insanely comfortable, it’s also practical and stylish — two outfit components we’re usually forced to choose between. Similar to the jumpsuit trend, dungarees can be one of the fastest & easiest ensembles to throw together.
Although dungarees are a relatively simple item, they can be a little tricky to execute correctly. One wrong turn and they can instantly transform you into a farmer, clown, or 5 year-old. It’s also imperative to find the right fit to ensure that they’re as flattering as possible. To achieve this, avoid pairing your dungarees with flannel shirts, busy prints like polka dots, spaghetti strap tanks (just avoid those altogether please). Instead, opt for simple striped tops, chic blouses, and basic tees. Lastly, make sure to stay away from other statement pieces like trendy hats and tons of jewelry — this would be way too much, not to mention totally take away from your dungarees.
Another issue with this trend is tracking down a cute pair. I’m usually a huge fan of thrift stores, but chances are, you won’t be able to find a pair at Goodwill that won’t swallow you up. Check out these more stylish, modern options — they’re even organized to fit your price point!
