At Wash, you know we’re fans of dungarees. Whether you love classic denim dungarees or a more relaxed jersey look, we design to cater to all dungarees styles because we love them so much. This year, styling up dungarees is easier than ever before because this year, accessories are so key when it comes to trends.

Here, we take a look at some of our favourite ways to style up dungarees for 2019.

Take Your Accessories Back to the ‘90s

From bum bags to retro trainers, ‘90s accessories are seriously in this year and they work perfectly with a dungarees look. Denim or not, wrap a neon or sports-inspired bum bag around your waist to cinch in your shape and keep you hands-free all day long. Trainers are the perfect combo so stick to retro and colourful Air-Max or old-school coloured Adidas Classics for the perfect take on this look.

Do It with Heels

Always thought dungarees were strictly casual outfits, designed for a day of housework or gardening? You couldn’t be more wrong this year. Because for 2019, dungarees paired with sky-high heels is such a look. Whether you’re dressing up for date night or girl’s night out, layer your dungarees over a simple crop top or bralette and styled with barely-there heels for a seriously stylishly dressy take on the trend.

Make It Workwear

This trend won’t work for every workplace but depending on your office dress code, dressing darker hue dungarees up for workwear is ultra-popular this year. Dark or black denim works best for this look as it keeps the aesthetic slightly dressier. Layer with a feminine silky or ruffled shirt and add smart heels or mules with a chic tote bag for office vibes with an all-in-one edge.

Layer Up Your Denim

We’ve all heard of double denim, right? But what about even more denim? Instead of simple jeans and a denim jacket, layer up denim dungarees with a fitted denim shirt for a look that could even pass as triple denim. Add pops of colour through your accessories to break up the blue or even style a black denim shirt under blue dungarees or a blue denim shirt under black dungarees to add some extra dimension to your look.

Border Dungarees and Jumpsuit

If the idea of denim dungarees is making you nervous, why not first try out one of our jumpsuits to ease you into the all-in-one vibe? Our Jools Jersey Jumpsuits are chic, yet comfortable, fitted to the body, yet relaxed and come complete with a flattering cowl neckline and racer-style back. It might not be a full dungaree, but it’s a step in the dungarees direction!
