White Dungarees

White overalls

I love a good white denim especially in dungarees because they take the fuss and 'perfectness' of white out.

I wore them while upstate a few weeks ago and borrowed Daria's vintage jacket for a few minutes just to 'feel' it on me.

White dungarees: Levis. Try Asos or Frame.  Sandals: Zara. Cuff: Liberty United.  Shades: Ray-Ban.  Jacket: Daria's (she talked about it before here).

We both were discussing the merits of constantly searching for the perfectly slouched leather jacket which she now has in this one.   You can read the full piece on Daria here.

I reckon that we're all looking for THE perfect slouched leather I don't care what time of year it is.

If not, then it's looking for the perfect denim 'something' which these dungarees are for me - it's their second summer rotation.  Wear them with a white t-shirt for a white on white look or contrast them in dark tops - both ways work.

7 Ways To Wear Summer Denim

Elaine Welteroth

Denim seems harder to wear in summer but here's seven ideas that inspire enough to want to try.

A summer dress with a denim detail like this one on Teen Vogue beauty editor Elaine Welteroth from Urban Outfitters.  


Update bunched skinny jeans by hacking to above ankles leaving raw edges.  This is killer with heels. 


Try a fitted version of denim on denim versus going oversized.  


Contrast destroyed fitted dungarees with little kitten heels.

Contrast all blue with an accent colour.

Punk Pink

Adidas Stan smith

No reason to avoid faffy pinks and frothy skirts when you've got a jacket and trainers to dumb it down.

The skirt and sequin top are from the Hells Kitchen vintage flea market recently.   

The skirt sits high on the waist and I covered it with the sequin t-shirt which reminds me of that Ashish sequined collection. I tried both on at the vendor's outdoor stall, crouching behind his clothing rails - classy.  That's normal for me.

Speaking of vintage, I want to visit the above vintage shop in Harlem. See last photo. Reckon that chest dead center is for sale?  They have a TV show that started last Tuesday called BORN to Style  (10pm ET/11p PT on FYI network) which I'll check out first to get a feel before I take the trip.  It airs every Tuesday.   I will let you know when I go.
