Dungarees are quite the fashion trend these days. Here are some great styling tips to help you ace the look.
For those who are not afraid to take some fashion risk, dungarees or overalls are back in vogue. Gone are the days when only kids wore dungarees — celebrities such as Anushka Sharma, Yami Gautam, Katrina Kaif, Priyanka Chopra, Celine Dion, Selena Gomez and Joanna Krupa were all spotted sporting them in recent times. Interestingly, the likes of Paris Jackson, Vanessa Hudgens and Sherlyn Chopra are even wearing dungarees with an unfastened strap! If you want to have fun and look good, dungarees permit you to do both. These functional outfits are high on style and make sure you look cool.
While there are several options such as loose-fit, relaxed, skinny-fit, shorts and skirt dungarees to choose from, stylists say that it is important to find the perfect fit to ace the look. “Denim dungarees have been doing the rounds lately on the international fashion scene and Bollywood divas are sporting them as well. Fluid cotton dungaree is the trend this season. Pair it with a crop top or even a casual tee. I love the sweet little detail around the waist that gives a little peek into what you are wearing underneath,” says celebrity designer Archana Kochhar.
Denim dungarees can be experimented with. “A trendy baseball cap, oversized sunglasses and sneakers gives you a look with a relaxed vibe. If you want to dress it up, opt for crop tops, a pair of swanky heels, chunky gold earrings and bracelets,” Archana advises.
The foolproof way to wear a dungaree is with a white t-shirt and sneakers. But you can also try nautical prints or greys for t-shirts. “Experiment with the length of your sleeves. Plain black dungarees have more scope for styling. You can pair it with ankle boots, flats, pumps, and even sandals. However, keep colours neutral for an aesthetic look” advises stylist Ayesha A.K.
According to designer Althea Krishna, ripped and tattered dungarees are a great fashion choice. “However, if your dungaree is simple, go for printed and sheer fabric on the inside,” she adds.
“Leave your hair open or in a messy top knot. A nude or a coral lip colour is sufficient when it comes to make-up” suggests Ayesha.
