Throwback Thursday: Dungarees

Throwback Thursday: Dungarees

Often when you mention dungarees the first image that pops into people’s heads are that of a shapeless, unflattering outfit favoured by decorators.  Like many popular pieces from the ’70s the dungaree is making a comeback and are being helped on their way by celebrities such as Alexa Chung.  Forgot your hillbilly or ’90s grunge images and check out the style dungarees of the ’70s dungarees – chic and tailored.  Dungarees are a modern phenomenon – they’ve been around since the 1700s!  Originally a protective clothing for labourers the dungaree wasn’t widely accepted as a fashion item until the late 1950s.  Check out some celebrities in the trend and try it yourself with a few options below…
