Like these ones. What do you think?

I have wanted a pair of loose denim dungarees for a few but haven't been able to find them anywhere. Now it seems they are everywhere and i'm worried i'll look like a fashion victim.

If they look hideous on Keira Knightley then what chance does a normal a normal human being stand shock?!!

I wouldn't wear them outside of the house, but I have had a pair for years that I do decorating and gardening in. Very people can carry them off, I certainly can't. I saw a dungaree dress the other day which was quite nice.

Aww I think she looks great. Very relaxed obviously but comfy and good. I'm the same build as her around the same height I think.

If you are young slim and flat chested they can look lovely

DukeSilver Mon 06-May-13 13:05:11

I am most definitely flat chested! Im 26 so reckon I could get away with it age wise for a few more years.

I have some from Zara. Not many people like them though.

Someone I work with wears them and looks great.

I love them am sure they will look great on you. I am skinny, flat chested petite but maybe a bit old but would still wear them for pottering round house and garden. Have always liked them not just cause they are back in fashion.

Hell no. Were they ever in fashion? I have a hideous photo of myself and my Dsis as teens wearing them. She was wearing a maroon and white striped jumper and rust coloured corduroy dungarees and I was wearing a maroon frilly necked jumper and grey corduroy dungarees! It is the most awful picture we had taken of us together and there have been some crackers.

Hmm....I've got some fitted black ones, and I love them. I've always had a thing for dungarees, though...

I'm slim-ish, but not flat-chested. Am I hurting people's eyes?!

Oh, and 22, if that matters. But I look about 16.

DukeSilver Mon 06-May-13 17:22:06

It seems they are a bit love them or hate them! grin

I'm a little bit hippyish, so I would wear them in the most non glamorous way possible. I'll probably look a bit like a farmer.

CajaDeLaMemoria Mon 06-May-13 17:29:24

For some bizarre reason, at about 14, I loved them. They were badly out of fashion then (early 2000's) so I had to buy maternity dungarees. They were huge, at least twice my size.

I wore them everywhere. The photographs are horrific.

Maybe I'm doing the same thing again!? blush

They wouldn't do anything for me unfortunately but I think Diane Kruger really pulls them off here:

But she looks amazing in anything..

Dungarees look great on small children.

Only small children.
