This summer, you can take a trip back in time and revisit some of your favorite childhood looks – strap on bracelets and beaded barrettes, anyone? Nineties babes will remember the rage that was dungarees – all day, every day. At Swimwear World, we are on a mission to bring them back in a sexy new avatar, remixed with quirky fabrics, eye-catching embellishments and sizzling ensembles. Here’s how to rock this trend like a true fashionista:
Dungarees Over A Sexy Bikini
Whilst dungarees are uber comfortable and true to their tomboyish vibe, you can ramp up the flirt factor by pairing these denim babies with your designer bikini for a casual day at the mall or a boozy brunch with your best girls. They make for an eclectic beach cover up as well so don’t forget to throw them into your beach bag. We can totally imagine a pair of light denim dungarees over a floral designer bandeau bikini top, or polka dot dungarees with a white bustier bikini top. Given their versatility, the possibilities are endless!
The gorgeous Rachel Bilson was obviously a season or two ahead of the trend, because she rocked a pair of simple denim dungarees with her triangle bikini top mid-2013 for some shopping and lunch with Hayden Christensen (can you say drool?) If you are trying to put together an evening look, skip the denim and throw on a pair of black dungarees over your sexy designer bikini instead. Add some sparkly jewels and you’re good to go. The ultimate summer style statement, we reckon.
Dungarees With Your Favorite Shirt
The combination of dungarees with a cute graphic tee makes for the perfect day look where a bikini top just is not appropriate – in the office or at university, perhaps? If you are looking for a sophisticated look which adds a few notches of grace, pair two solid shades together. Our all time favorite Victoria Secret’s Angel Alessandra Ambrosio is obviously a huge fan of this trend and is rocking it both on and off the beach. You really can’t go wrong with black and white or breezy denim dungarees with a plain white tee. Throw on some gold baubles and your favorite pair of Converse and there you have it – the perfect city look. Switch the tee for a shirt if you are feeling formal or a crop top to show of a tantalizing glimpse of that bikini body you have worked so hard on.
To up the quirk factor, we dare you to combine two clashing prints – Aztec dungarees with a nautical striped t-shirt or flirty floral with crazy checks, maybe? Experiment until you find a mix that works for you. Keep the accessories simple, but don’t forget to throw in a killer smile!
Leave It Unstrapped
The easiest way to make a statement with any outfit is how you wear it – knotting your t-shirt above the waist or tucking in your shirt instead of leaving it out. It is all about the details. When it comes to dungarees, you can instantly add some edgy vibes to your ensemble by leaving one of the shoulder straps strap undone. This exposes a little bit more of your tee or sexy designer bikini top and makes for an interesting element in your nineties get-up.
