Wishlist: Long vs Short Dungarees

 

Long...

VS.

 

Short...

 

You searched and I have answered. Sort of. Unfortunately, the dungarees I wore in my post on Sunday isn't available online any longer (though I have still seen it floating around selected HM stores) so I have provided some alternatives. Plus with summer here (well kinda), I thought it paramount to ponder whether long or short dungarees are ideal for you. So I'm gonna share some of my personal rules for overalls, especially long ones. The standard denim blue ones need to be boyfriend style and as such baggy, otherwise they hug my thighs too tightly and I'll feel super conscious. Plus the boyfriend look is very casual, effortless and cool. However, black denim can be as tight as it likes as black is naturally slimming...in fact, the tighter the better haha. Leather is a very fun take on the standard black pair. On the flip, I don't think I would wear an all white pair in fear of looking to much like a painter/decorator. But all white in the shorter style I feel is fine, in fact I recommend it. A great summer look! And if you wanna stand out from the crowd (it seems everyone has the dungaree shorts now) I would suggest going retro with a vintage style dungaree dress. I love it paired with a white tshirt, some casual sandals and funky sunglasses. Golden! 

I really need another shopping trip before my upcoming holiday but I've just taken a very brief and shaky scan of my bank statement and it's not looking too promising. Still over a week till payday and then it's new clothes galore. I literally get paid, live the high life for one week and then am poor for the remaining 3 weeks. Haha. Anyone else do similar? xo
