How to Style: Vintage Dungarees for All Occasions

Over the years vintage dungarees have dipped in and out of fashion. However, this 90s favourite is now back with a bang for all occasions.

Many of you may remember dungarees as a playground staple. But with the right wardrobe vintage dungarees can look upscale and composed. Fashion influencers, including Alexa Chung, have revived this style throughout the years, showing the versatility of vintage dungarees.

Discover our favourite ways to style this cult classic and tailor it to your personal style:

Day to Day

For time restricted mornings where quick decisions are needed, vintage dungarees are easy to style. Pair with your favourite tee, boots or trainers and let your hair’s natural waves run free for effortless chic. Add a bold lipstick with minimal makeup if you really want to elevate this look. The versatility of denim means you don’t need to consider your colour palette, as it can work with almost anything.

Date Night

To take your vintage dungarees from day to night, an off the shoulder top can add elegancy. When paired with the right heels, dungarees can be an easy date night look.

Another option is a tucked in shirt, for when you need to look more composed. The combination of a collared shirt and dungarees is all about creating balance. It can also be fit for most occasions, as it can be paired with sandals, heels or trainers! The key is to find the right proportions, making sure nothing too oversized is paired with anything too well fitted.

Meeting Friends

When joining your friends for a cinema trip or quick lunch, pair your vintage dungarees with a crop top. To show off your chosen crop top or bralette, lower the straps on your dungarees for a more laidback look.

Alternatively, for the colder days, pair with a long sleeve top or jumper with your favourite pair of trainers. Well fitted dungarees are also great for layering with a longline coat and a cosy knit scarf.

Evening Wear

Wide leg bottoms with high waist cinching can help to balance your lower and upper body. It can also have a lengthening effect when paired with heeled shoes, if you want to look taller. Again, paired with a tee or shirt, dungarees can help create a smart look, which is comfortable and easy to wear.
