For my previous “Look of the Week” I decided to try something new, by wearing dungarees with some Threaded details. The shirt and tie, together with the dungarees, gave the outfit a good balance between casual and formal.
This season dungarees will be making a big comeback, so here are three tips to keep in mind when wearing them.
Keep it simple
When it comes to wearing dungarees, it’s important that you keep it simple. This is because dungarees make a statement on their own! Stick to neutral colours and shades. I always wear my dungarees with a smart shirt or Golf Tee.
Don’t go topless or strapless
Nothing is messier than seeing someone wearing dungarees with both straps off the shoulders. The bottoms becomes baggy and you end up looking like you’re wearing a prison uniform. It’s cool to take one strap off but both is a bit extreme. Also gents, steer clear of wearing dungarees without a shirt or a tee, as it just doesn’t look smart.
Get the right shoes
What I find most difficult, when it comes to styling my dungarees, is finding the right shoes. Dungarees that you buy at commercial stores are a wide fit. My suggestion is that you roll them up and wear them with clean white sneakers, if you are going for a formal look.
These three tips are simple but will make a huge difference when you put together that dungaree outfit for summer.Im wearing a dungaree from Topman.
