Street Style: Why Dungarees Are The New Must-Have

From Alexa Chung and Olivia Palermo to SJP and Keira Knightley, we’ve long been admiring dungarees and their casual-chic potential, but were starting to think that only the celebs could get away with them. Oh, how wrong we were. As our street stylers have been showing us, denim overalls are the way to go to achieve some major cool-girl vibes.

Jo demonstrates just how to rock dungarees for summer. She’s layered her Primark denim over a printed New Look crop top, and has added H&M caged sandals. The result is an effortless, easy approach to warm-weather dressing. Bravo, Jo!

Julia, meanwhile, has opted for a River Island jean onesie, worn on top of a grey marl knit from Asos. Her Russell & Bromley loafers and MiH Jeans accessories in clashing patterns give her dungarees a serious chic-over, but without looking too styled.

e’re using these dunga-loving ladies as our go-to inspo from now on, and we cannot wait to try ours out. We’ll be wearing ours with everything from slides to ankle boots and suede slippers.
