Covering Up

There is no denying that dungarees and overalls are suddenly back in fashion. With summer season rolling around, it seems that every high street store from Topshop to Zara is stocking up on them. Now all of us probably have adorable childhood pictures wearing a pair of these denim outfits, I in particular used to rock a white floral barbie set, but the ones that celebrities have been decked out in are far from childish.

With varying degrees of styles of afore mentioned dungarees, they can be purchased in any fabric or print from denim to cotton, allowing for them to be worn day or night, festival or dinner date. There are really no constraints to the variety that they can be worn.

I was in Singapore a week or so ago and every single shop I walked into had them. They were in the form of denim pinafores, long overalls, short ones, suspender-esque ones, there were literally hundreds of designs; Topshop even stocked a pair with a leaf print that verged on gaudy! 

Alongside the trend for dungarees has been crop tops which seem to be in abundance at seriously cheap prices! Now I am assuming that these are slowly coming back due to the (predicted) hot summer ahead and the increasing number of high waisted bottoms from shorts to hi-lo skirts. Personally, I love them. If you have the body, you go out and rock them however you please, they probably won't be around enough for you to have a second chance! For me, it is simply more motivation to go to the gym. However, if you are a bit on the curvier side, you can still wear them with high-waisted outfits as it won't reveal your midriff, just probably try not to wear them with low slung jeans.

I love dungarees and will definitely be investing in a pair when I return for my GAP year (1 month to go!) and I can't wait to style them!
