Deep U-neck ski-ing dungarees by Perfect Moments (L) and overall-style metallic dungaree by Supreme X The North Face

The dungaree has graduated to a post-lockdown staple; designers are now working towards reviving this beloved ‘90s trend to make it dressier so you can slip into one for a barbecue, an errand run or even for casual Fridays. While brands like Burberry, Celine and Balmain are deconstructing the suspender-and-bib format and introducing newer silhouettes, designers like Ulla Johnson and Isabel Marant are re-imagining dungarees as luxury streetwear with metallic bodies and flashier accents. So, whether you like them slouchy or sporty, you can’t wrong with a dungaree this season:

Perfect Moments

London-based luxury activewear label Perfect Moments makes a great case for including more sporty options in everyday wear; these racing dungarees have a streamlined silhouette which means they can go with an oversized jumper or even a high-collared shirt. The deep U-neck makes the piece more repeatable and resort wear-friendly since it can be paired with flowy materials.

Isabel Marant

It’s the new normal where you can wear a dungaree to the club, to the beach or even a post-work do, if you style it well enough. The Gilekla dungaree by Isabel Marant was a hit at the 2021 spring/summer runway. The tapered, straight leg fit works great for dressy dungarees since they’re more versatile and can be layered with cut-out tops or elaborate vintage blouses.

Burberry’s Riccardo Tisci takes layering to another level with these grungy cut-out dungarees from the spring/summer 2021 line. The gender-fluid one-piece works with a deconstructed silhouette; the snap-button closure makes layering easy, be it over something baggy or skin-fitting. It’s a playful romper-style streetwear statement that’s hugely adaptable.

Supreme X The North Face

Supreme collaborated with activewear brand The North Face for this overall-style gold-toned dungaree, which goes with about everything. This is a total collector’s item for merchandise maniacs, not just because of the brand collaboration but also because of the mountain pants-inspired baggy bottoms that are rarely spotted on one-piece numbers.

Junya Watanabe

Comme des Garçons icon Rei Kawakubo’s protège Junya Watanabe championed the sporty, feminine dungaree dress; the tea-length midi number breaks many fashion rules simultaneously. The black halter dress is made with nylon and faux leather and has a chic geometric neck; the flared skirt has a close-fit near the waist which is a convenient styling option if someone’s looking to restyle it with a belt.

The Ski dungarees by the French activewear brand Rossignol have an impeccable fit and can double up as athleisure wear; since it’s dressier than most activewear picks, they can also be layered up for a more androgynous look and can be paired with chunky knits or something with a high neck for perfect fall styling.
