They're in fashion. They come in a variety of colours, patterns and fabrics. And you wore them when you were teething... you know what I'm talking about, right?

Dungarees have been around for hundreds of years.

Originally, they were made in the 16th century for men to wear in labour heavy jobs but since the 20th century, the overall has infiltrated women’s fashion and 2018 is no excuse.

So, here is six reasons why you’re never too old to wear dungarees:

1: They’re comfy


Why wouldn’t you want to go out in public and feel like you’re still in your pyjamas?

You’ll never want to squeeze into your skinny jeans again once you get a taste of the dungaree life. Plus, you'll no longer have to worry about your trousers falling down in public.

2. They’re practical


Going out and don’t really want to take a bag? No problem.

Most dungarees will come with of pocket space, including a big one on the front. What safer place to keep your phone and your lip gloss handy than right in front of your eyes?

3. You can easily dress them up or down


Going shopping? Dungarees. Hanging out with your pals? Dungarees. Out on the town? Dungarees. The all-in-one garment can be easily dressed up for night out or down for a shopping day.

Pair them with a t-shirt and trainers for a casual look, and for the night, spice them up with heels, a blouse and accessories. 

4. They're cool


Gone are the days when you spend ages searching for the perfect outfit in the morning. Instead of wasting time trying to find that perfect top and bottom combo, just throw on some dungarees with a t-shirt and your trainers and you’ll look effortlessly cool

5. They help you relive your Dancing Queen days


The success of Mamma Mia has made dungarees trendier than ever.

Pair your denim dungarees with a funky shirt or a Grecian blouse and live out your wildest ABBA dreams. If they’re good enough for Meryl Streep and Lily James, how can you not give them a try!

6. They’re affordable


Depending where you shop, dungarees can be really cheap. If you find overalls from the high street slightly out of budget, try going down to your nearest charity or vintage shop. There, you should be able to find a quality pair from £20 - £40.

That’s it!
