Fun fact – the word dungarees is actually derived from the place Dongri, in our very own Mumbai, where the stiff fabric is still produced today. The style was originally associated with the working class, with mechanics wearing them in the early 20th century. Cut to present, and celebs are lapping this trend up for casual strolls and running errands.

Kiera paired hers with Converse sneakers, a Breton striped top, and added a Chanel sling bag for some high-fashion flair. Alexa Chung wore a loose shirt, and a sexy feminine twist with wedges.

If you want to try this look, make sure you keep it casual. Roll up your hem for a boyfriend silhouette, and pair with sandals or wedges. The brighter the tops, the better!
