Work the work-wear trend with a pair of Dungarees.

Posted on August 30 2013

Dungarees are a fashion item which always seem to be in and out of trend.  Over the past few months, dungarees have once again made an appearance back in to stores and back in to our wardrobes. Dungarees first appeared in 1792. Originally worn by manual labourers, farmers and workmen. Dungarees, or overalls, were a convenient and cheap clothing to wear. Dungarees were later worn by women who worked in the factories during the First World War. tumblr_mqxxec0QoN1qj8evso1_500Wartime Farm Workers Being a standard work wear item for those in the manual labour workforce, it would seem that dungarees wouldn’t be something which would become a style item. However, they were revamped into a clothing item which was stylish and popular among women and children in the 1960s, 70s and 90s.
