There are so many summer trends which tend to stick around from year to year – some of my favourites are bardot tops, denim skirts and floral dresses. Another one of those summer staples has to be a classic comfy pair of dungarees, and whether you wear them styled up for a fashionable outfit, or for a day of painting, they’ll always provide that on-trend look that anyone can wear.
I’ve got the comfiest (honestly most perfect) pair of dungarees from Superdry and I’m going to style them up to create a simple summery look, along with some tips for finding the right pair.
The white shirt combo was at the top of my list for the casual look I wanted to create, and having the long sleeve shirt was the ideal addition considering the rather changeable weather at the mo. Summer, can you actually come and stay please?
This pair of dungarees in particular are the comfiest fit, and I got a size Small (which is a 28″ waist). Usually I’m somewhere between a 27″ waist and a 28″ so if that helps any of you work out sizing then there you go. I love the adjustable straps because it makes it WAY easier for us slightly taller girls to get away with wearing dungarees without the constant burning sensation from tight denim in our lady areas. THE WORST RIGHT!? The final thing I love about these dungarees are the fact they actually cover up my arse. If having half of your cheeks out is your thing then so be it, but I personally like most of my ‘secret bits’ (lol) to be covered up. Saying all this has made me realise I probably need to do some more squats or something, then I won’t mind a bit of bum show will I?
TIPS FOR FINDING THE PERFECT DUNGAREES FOR YOU
What size is the model wearing, and how tall is she? Model heights vary so much online so it can be tough to know whether they’ll be long enough/too long for you. Don’t trust sites without model details.
Read the reviews. Dungarees should be super soft and comfy, none of that hard denim! Are they true to size? FIND OUT.
Invest if you need. A good pair of dungarees will last you YEARS. I’ve had the same pair from Urban Outfitters for 5 years (they no longer fit, but that’s just the amount of donuts I eat).
If you find one on a site you love, have a root around their social media and hashtags to see if you can see other people wearing it. It’s good to see REAL women wearing the clothes.
Opt for sites with free returns. Superdry offer this, as do a lot of brands, but I recently forked out nearly £4 for returning an item and it’s SUCH a waste of money considering you get no item in return…
Are the straps adjustable? I wouldn’t opt for ones that aren’t – especially if (unlike me) you’re blessed with a bit of a bust.
