Five Ways to Wear Your Dungarees
After such a scorching summer, we’re feeling excited about the prospect of cold crisp mornings and the imminent need to layer up. Having said that, deciding what to wear when it involves more than just a summer dress can often be a real chore. Which is why we love the versatility of dungarees, combining comfort and ease in one single piece. The temptation, unsurprisingly, is to wear them 24/7 (often the case here at Lowie HQ), which is why we’ve put together a style guide to help you get the most wear from your trusty dungas.
1. Work Wear:
For an office appropriate vibe, we suggest tucking our Batwing Blouse under the Navy Corduroy Dungarees. The ric-rac detailing and fabric covered buttons on the shirt pairs beautifully with the deep blue cord, creating a perfectly professional aesthetic.
2. Colour Be Happy:
For something fun and playful, layer our new season Pink Cotton Drill Dungarees over Thinking Mu's Ellen top, designed in Barcelona and printed on 100% organic cotton. Finish with Blundstone's Chelsea boots and you’ve got yourself a joyful outfit that you’d be hard pressed to tire of.
Even for the most committed all-in-one wearers, it can be refreshing to switch things up. Nine times out of ten, you might opt for a 'jumper under' approach, particularly if you're styling it with one of our Scottish Snow Jumpers...
Having said that, the tapered legs on our Cotton Drill Dungarees make for an elegant silhouette, so when you feel you've exhausted one aesthetic, reverse the approach and no-one will know you’re still peddling your trusty dungas...
4. Laid Back:
For a more casual aesthetic, wear your dungarees over a pretty blouse, such as the Lollys Laundry Flower Frankie shirt and layer over a cosy cardigan, like our brushed lambswool iteration in forest green.
Finish with leather accessories, such as the stunning Kate Sheridan Apex Tab bag.
5. Weekend Wanders:
Autumn heralds the arrival of weekend walks and country pub gatherings, and for this, we suggest combining a pair of our versatile and long-lasting workwear dungarees with either a quilted coat, such as Lavenham's Craydon Jacket made from 100% recycled polyester or Kate Sheridan’s Reversible Lumber Vest. Both have cool country appeal woven into their very design.
