While dungarees may have been considered the go-to staple of models and super stylish stars alone, this season the dungaree trend has had a mainstream makeover - and everyone from Topshop to Toast has their own interpretation to tempt you in.

To help you find the right pair for you, we've picked 10 of our favourites and included which styles suit certain shapes and what you can wear it with. It couldn't be more simple.

  • Black skinny jeans

    Best for: shorter figures

    Pair with: A grey roll neck, black heels and a black clutch bag

    Strictly speaking, tall people can wear this style too but to appear taller, the length on the jean should graze the ankle and these will do the job best. If they're still a tad too long, make sure you get them taken up to give the illusion of more height.


  • Lee Bib Front Full Length Dungarees

    Best for: flat chests

    Pair with: a white shirt and Stan Smith Adidas trainers

    As these overalls are so high-necked it's important to get the balance just right. They can also accentuate a flat chest if you feel that you're lacking. 


  • MOTO Selvedge Denim Dungarees

    Best for: mid-height

    Pair with: a Breton top and strappy heels 

    These work best when you're neither towering above people, or looking up to them. A truly spring outfit, this is ideally worn with stripes and heels for a glamorous nautical look. Oh, and a tan. 


  • Indigo Denim Flared Dungaree

    Best for: petite and curvy shapes

    Pair with: Stiletto heels and a pussybow blouse

    When you're short and don't go straight up and down, skinny jeans can be your own personal hell. Thankfully, flared-style dungarees perfectly balance you out. 


  • Backless denim dungarees

    Best for: bigger chests

    Pair with: A simple black long-sleeved tee and black heels.

    Too much material up top can bring more attention to your chest area, so to minimize this, make sure you wear black with a thinner denim.


  • Levi's Overalls

    Best for: All types

    Pair with: a bomber jacket and nude heels (like these

    This is a classic pair of dungarees from a classic jean brand so you can't really go wrong here. 


  • Ripped denim dungarees

    Best for: Petite and sporty types

    Pair with: a Chambray shirt and a white pair of stiletto heels

    Ripped jeans are still having a moment so combine that look with the dungarees trend and you've got fashion gold. 


  • Black Denim Dungarees

    Best for: giving you a waist

    Pair with: creepers and a camel coat

    If you feel that you could do with some help when it comes to accentuating your waist, then opt for these dungarees. They have a defined waistband to give you that cinched-in look.


  • Mori dungaree

    Best for: Tall shapes

    Pair with: a grey t-shirt and espadrilles 

    On a more vertically challenged person, you'll find these dungarees will look too big but on a taller figure you'll find a better fit. Ideal as  a cool summer outfit.



    Best for: boyish figures

    Pair with: white blazer and flat slingbacks

    Instead of fighting the more androgynous look, accept it and make it a statement with masculine tailoring and chic shoes.
