We first reported on the dungaree/overall comeback last year as designers and high street stores alike began serving up a selection of styles in denim, leather and print. But over the past week, we’ve seen a massive spike in celeb fans of the worker look. Devotees have included Diane Kruger who stepped out in MiH’s Bib & Brace dungarees and Gwyneth Paltrow who told People magazine that she will be wearing her dungarees all summer. “I love overalls. I never stopped wearing overalls,” the flaxen haired star explained and she’s not the only one to fall for the utility staple’s charms.

The ultimate in Sunday relaxez-vous style, if you don’t have a perfect pair of dungarees, it’s time to start considering their awesome properties. One great point to note about dungarees is that they make for a great transitional option. A simple layering tool, you can wear dungarees with just about anything – from a fine black cashmere rollneck to ward off the early spring chills to an easy Breton as the mercury rises. If you roll the leg and team with a heel, the look is instantly elevated, but dungarees can look just as cool with a pair of Converse or sneakers. This season white dungarees are having a moment – FRAME denim’s are of particular note.
And of course when we hit summer proper, it will be all about short dungarees and dungaree dresses – both offering a high summer choice for Gwynnie and her A-list-overall loving pals. Layer with a crop top or even a sports bra for a low-key, sunshine ready look.
