Dungarees or also known as Overalls (as I recently found out in NY) are currently a huge obsession of mine. Seriously, my love for them is bigger than my love for brogues - and that's saying something. Why you ask? Although I could answer this question in form of a dissertation, I will save you the lecture and instead tell you the 3 main reasons in this post.
Put a shirt underneath and you are illustrating the legitimate definition of Smart-Casual. Seriously though, this is a complete lifesaver when going out because not only is it ridiculously comfy, but you can't be under dressed because you're wearing a smart shirt and you can't be over dressed because you're wearing dungarees. YES.
It's no secret that I love a good layering of clothes, Jumpers over shirts, Jackets over shirts, but oh my goodness dungarees over a jumper OVER a shirt! Not only is this so practical, (because layers always are) but in my opinion it just looks so damn nice! Also, lets just point out here that this looks like one warm outfit, right? Well swap that warm jumper and shirt for a short sleeved t-shirt and HELLO SUMMER OUTFIT- So there's another reason, Money well spent.
3.COMFIEST OUTFIT EVER
I've never understood the reasoning for someone wearing tracksuit bottoms out and about (other than excercise), until I wore dungarees- because I've now realised how great comfy clothing is, but then I got confused to why someone is wearing tracksuit bottoms when there's these bad boys! I mean all I'm saying is that you can pair them with a t-shirt and I still think they look fab. Though my fashion taste does change, so next year you might see me devoting my love to a pair of tracksuit bottoms (Though I HIGHLY doubt it)
And there you go, have I won the argument? Have I made you turn to the dark side? Well if not, I'm
