There’s no denying it – dungarees are pretty great! I already announced on my Twitter that they are my favourite fashion comeback of the year. Hey, when you grew up in the 1990s, there is no way that you can’t love a good ol’ pair of overalls. Just be thankful that I haven’t gone the tie-dye and genie pant route! (No seriously, my camel print MC Hammer pants were my favourites growing up!) I do find it quite bizarre though – not even a year ago I wore a dungaree outfit, and received so many negative comments on how awful I looked and how disgusting dungarees wore… Last night I wore my Boohoo dungarees, and was asked three times about where I got them from. Fashion, you are a bit of a weirdo, you know that?
So when Boohoo asked me to style a piece for their #denimdaze campaign, I simply had to have these near-black denim dunagrees. A good choice? You know it! Living in a particularly windy city like Wellington means that having any clothing item that stops me being upskirted is a plus. No, scratch that, a massive plus! A plus so big you almost couldn’t believe it! I am so excited to style them in Winter too – paired with opaque black tights underneath. For today I styled my Boohoo dungarees with a striped sailor top from Modcloth and my favourite red clogs. Ahh, dungarees, I hope you stick around in fashion a lot longer this time!
