3 Cool Ways To Wear Dungarees.

Dungrees/Overalls is one 90's trends that is currently being resurrected and boy I'm I lapping it up? You see, I have a special fondness for the late 90's, this was the period growing up when I was becoming more self aware and my love for music and fashion started getting more defined.  So typically anything from that period brings back huge nostalgic rush and dungarees is one of such items.

Though quite easy to style, dungarees can quickly go wrong, this is because its so casual and laid back one can very easily turn out looking not put together or worse still like a car mechanic, not that there's anything wrong with that especially if that's the look you are aiming for.

My favourite way to wear dungarees is to pair with pieces that make it look classy and polished in order to tone down that whole casual- been-working-at-the-garage-all-day look!
In choosing my dungarees, I looked out for a pair that struck the right balance between being fitted and slouchy, because even though I wanted it to be modern and trendy, I also wanted it to look a bit tailored as that suits my figure better. 
I'm one of those people that don't do slouchy really well, to be able to pull off the perfect slouchy look, I would have to wear an item several sizes bigger and in the end it would look fitted around my hips and then be way bigger everywhere else. So the safe route for me and most people with bigger hips is to stick to the tailored/slightly tailored silhouette.

Another great way to style a dungaree to achieve a polished look is to pair with a strapless, fitted, bustier type top underneath it and  a white tuxedo blazer over it, the white gives a great contrast with the blue denim and you all know white tuxedos always look classy.

Here are 3 other ways I came up with to work this trend, enjoy!

What I'm wearing -  Dungarees - Kelly Renee ( get it here ) || Sandals  - Vince Camuto ( Coming  to here soon )|| Tank Top-  Gap||  Necklace - Vince Camuto  || Purse  - Aldo

In the first look (my outfit),  I paired my dungarees with a tank top, envelop clutch and strappy sandals. The second look is all refined and chic. The third look is sports casual, in this look I paired the dungarees with a sport inspired crop top, sneakers and straw bowler hat.  which do you like most?

I almost forgot this one, I was recently featured on the lovely house of Sienna blog please go check it out.

Speaking about the 90's,  what were your musical influences or favorite artist from the 90's? I loved  Aaliyah (God rest her soul), Sheryl Crow, Oasis, Mase, Mariah Carey, Busta Rhymes, Brandy, Monica, TLC , Tupac, Biggie, Joe, Destiny's Child....Someone please help me here! :)
