Talking Dungarees and Denim Jackets


Style Theory: Two pieces of denim I love are a good pair of dungarees and this year, thanks to the big 90s revival, I am loving the denim trucker jacket, it will play a major part in all my Spring/summer outfits this year.

So let's start with the Levis Trucker Jacket, when House of Fraser asked me to select a couple of pieces of denim to style I made a beeline for the denim jacket. I wore one all through my university years under my puffer coat (it was the 90s- all looking very familiar this year) with black jeans, chunky black boots and a crop top (oh those were the days). Fast forward 24 years to 2018 - a lot more wrinkles and lbs - I will be wearing this jacket with floral maxi dresses and chunky trainers this spring and in the summer throwing it over shorter summer dresses and flat tan sandals. It is the piece of denim you need in your wardrobe this year along with a great pair of ankle length jeans.

The colour of this jacket is great, a beautiful light denim and the fit is flattering, I am wearing a size small I would say it is pretty true to size.

The Dungarees..

Dungarees, I live in them, they are almost like a comfort blanket for me, extremely comfortable, practical (toilet trips an exception) and look just as good dressed down as dressed up.

These Fat Face dungarees are the height of comfort, made of super soft denim and look as good dressed up with heels as with a breton and trainers. They will take you from winter to summer and I know there are lots of people with reservations about them but honestly, I just completely love dungarees, they are soo comfortable!

A few other denim pieces I have eye on from House of Fraser..
Levis Sherpa Trucker Jacket at House of Fraser £99
A warmer version of the denim jacket, again a 90s classic, this will look fab over dresses or just simply with black or white jeans, a tee and trainers.
Levis 501 skinny at House of Fraser £85
Love a pair of Levis jeans..the original and the best.
Tommy Hilfiger Denim Dress at House of Fraser £80
The neck on this dress is beautiful, a denim dress is so useful, just throw on in the summer with tan sandals and you have a ready made outfit.
Seven For All Mankind at House of Fraser £190
These are 'slim illusion' jeans -that name immediately sells them to me- they stop at the ankle and are a beautiful colour wash.
Oui at House of Fraser £119
This is a great twist on the denim shirt, the frill high neck and cuffs are gorgeous details..

So many gorgeous pieces, I cannot wait until the weather gets better so I can wear my denim jacket over my dresses and not freeze!! Are you a denim jacket/dungaree fan, did you wear them in the 80s as always I love to hear your thoughts and comments, until next time Fran x
