Reincarnation of the Dungarees

The very mention of the word above has the potential to instill terror into the children of the 90s; when parents thought it acceptable to dress the most feminine of girls in ill-fitting, stonewash dungarees and keep photographic evidence. I have seen many an image of me tottering around the garden aged two years old in an outfit not fit for decorating a house.

However, as the SS seasons approach, pinafore dresses and denim one-pieces are set to make a huge comeback. The high street is already brimming with style ideas to prepare for the warmer months and at the forefront are the very items we once loathed.

I absolutely love this versatile trend and for inspiration I have chosen Alexa Chung in her trademark denim dungarees and Nicola Roberts wearing a tailored black pair on a recent Girls Aloud night out. Having just purchased a pinafore dress from Asos here I plan to wear mine over a stripey top with leather brogues or ankle boots.

Here are some high street buys that caught my eye:

The WhitePepper on Asos, £65
Topshop, £48
Missguided, £33.99

Check out the PHA fashion and lifestyle blog for my work.....

Just a quick post as it has come to my attention that I have been severely neglecting my blog of late. Having been busy at my recent placement at PHA Media, I have invested most of my ideas into writing features for the company blog which I am thoroughly enjoying. I am learning loads and honing my PR skills so I have nothing but positive things to say. Here is my latest post, selected by Account Exec Amy, on the dominant 'print' trend set to stay for SS13:
