If the word dungaree conjures up images of painter/decorators, then let us jog your memory because there have been many iconic overall moments over the years. Rachel wore hers in all kinds of iterations in 90s-era Friends. Tai wore a cut-off patchwork pair to party in Clueless. And Carrie wore hers with a striped vest and wellies to Aidan’s upstate cabin in Sex and the City. Historically, they’ve been adorable, but for AW18, they’re all grown up. Here’s three ways – from the catwalk, the ‘gram and beyond – to wear yours for the new season.

The styling is easy – it’s essentially just <span class=”woR”>jeans</span><span class=”woD”>Jeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth. Often the term “jeans” refers to a particular style of pants, called “blue jeans,” which were invented by Jacob Davis in 1871 and patented by Davis and Levi Strauss on May 20, 1873.

If dressy dungarees aren’t the one for you, let ASOS Insider Scarlett be your poster girl for the trend in her red, white and blue getup. Add some autumnal excellence to a simple overall and white tee combo with chunky-sole trainers in 90s brights, and a matching shacket to tie the whole thing together.
So simple, and actually so underrated, we’ve got a lot of time for this sporty iteration of the overalls trend. A clean and crisp white T-shirt and matching trainers will be your number one hun for brunching and leaf-kicking in this weekend. Layer a jumper underneath and a parka over the top when the chills set in.
