Overalls or dungarees?

Festival time is here – whether it’s a music festival or a fun neighborhood festival (we have many here in Atlanta), it’s time to dig out the festival clothes. Dungarees are a perennial favorite. Comfort, style and versatility make them my choice. Admittedly for the larger chested of us, they can be problematic, but I have discovered a great pair from H&M with thinner straps and a looser fit that seem to work well. I like to wear dungarees as simply as possible with a plain t-shirt and sneakers or espadrilles. I’m definitely a proponent of the dressed down dungaree look as opposed to the dressed up look – though I did try them with heels back here and here – I was a very early adopter of dungarees!

H&M are a great source of overalls – though be warned the sizing varies drastically! Some are teeny tiny and others need a size down. I think the pair I am wearing today are true to size – with a looser fit.

I also have this pair in a medium – they are sold out here online but check out stores – they are gorgeous and a great boyfriend fit.

I tried this cropped pair on in London and they are small fitting – I probably sized up 2 sizes! Having said that ignore the size on the label – they are gorgeous.

Again a pair that are unfortunately oos online – but I love the fit and flare cut of these.

Gap have a very similar style here. They are now on sale with an extra 35% off here in the US using code STYLE – certainly worth a punt!

I’m also smitten with this style – I love Gap’s denim. These are an online exclusive – with 35% off using STYLE.

Finally another of my favorite stores for denim – Madewell. I just love this skinny cut and they get rave reviews.

Here I am today in dress down comfort. My new Primark jacket also gets it’s first outing – thank you so much for sending Sue!! I’ve cut the label off the sleeve now after leaving it on all morning much to the amusement of my Husband!

    Yay! The jacket looks fab and isn’t it such a good buy? And I finally found a pair of dungarees the other day that fitted me. Did I buy them. No. I can’t get my head around them on me much as I love them on everyone else.
