Fashion Fix – 4 ways to dare it in Dungarees

02 September 2011

Give Alexa Chung the most challenging of outfits and be sure that she work her magic and turns it into a winning look. Denim dungarees may get you thinking of your childhood or a late nineties trend that had you wearing yours lowly slung folded over a belt but do as Alexa does and  there will be no nineties throw back connotations. Here are our top four tips to wearing dungarees this winter…

1.       Start from the bottom. Wearing a chunky wooden sandal a la Chung is essential to complete your look but be sure they have a heel, to avoid looking like a toddler!

2.       A pretty blouse, with Peterpan collar or billowy sleeves is the perfect antidote to the boyish and boxy shape of the denim.

3.       Accesssorize with a preppy satchel  - Alexa chooses the ‘Alexa’ from Mulberry to give her look a geeky vibe.

4.       Avoid giving to much attention to hair and makeup – tousled hair is out of the question!
