Styling your dungarees for cold weather
If you live in the UK, you’re expecting the temperature to just suddenly drop around now. Autumn and winter have always had minds of their own, and we’re never truly sure what the weather is going to be like during the colder seasons.
But as long as it’s not absolutely freezing outside and the ground isn’t covered in inches of thick snow, you should have no problem keeping your dungarees at the front of your wardrobe for the next few months.
There’s going to be a bit of a difference between autumn and winter styles, so we’ll go ahead and chat to you about each suggestion we make and how you can make it work for you (and for the weather).
Add a cosy jumper
The simplest style addition for the cold weather would be to pull on a thick jumper and fix the top half of your dungarees over it. For this style, make sure you pick out some of your jersey cotton or corduroy dungarees, which will help you hold in the heat if it gets a bit windy.
This style goes well with a fashionable hat, which can help you keep your ears warm, too! Have some fun with the colour co-ordination here, but when in doubt: black and white can work with just about anything.

A high neck for a fun print
Happen to have a couple print dungarees in your wardrobe? They can feel difficult to style for some, which is why many are wary of buying them. Or they’re brought and left to live in the corner of a closet.
But styling your clothes is supposed to be fun! When it comes to prints, keep it simple. A print that covers a lot of area, like a fully printed pair of dungarees, doesn’t need to be outshined by other prints or clashing colours.
Try a neutral coloured turtleneck and some monochrome boots or trainers. Not only is this a great autumn look, you’ll rock whatever print you’re wearing.

Chunky knitwear for statement flair
Autumn fading and the wind getting sharply cold? Break out the knitwear, it’s time to get some layers on under those dungarees!
The best thing about knitwear is that it’s beautifully stretchy, and can be worn over the top of a few thinner layers or a couple thicker layers. Knitwear can have some looser holes in its structure, so wearing another jumper (even a thin one) underneath can seriously help keep you warm.

That’s not all!
Remember that your dungarees are overalls, not an overcoat. You can style up your look with a tailored winter coat, a faux leather jacket, scarfs, hats, gloves... The works! The beauty of dungarees lies in their simplicity. They aren’t a complicated fashion piece that can only be worn one way.
It may be cold this time of year, but there’s no reason you can’t break out a little bit of sparkle.
