If you haven't warmed to the dungarees comeback yet, this street style set might convince you to welcome the denim onesie back into your wardrobe. Don't be fooled — the piece may be a throwback, but the styling definitely isn't. These girls (including Alexa Chung!) outfitted the former '90s favourite with a totally modern, cool-girl approach — and it's easier than you think.

The Downtown Girl's Dungarees

If you think wearing dungarees is like putting on a costume, study up on this laid-back version. Just as you would your favourite pair of worn jeans, follow suit with this trendsetter by mixing classic dungarees with an oversize t-shirt and booties. Her overalls look is totally accessible and has that same effortless appeal that's also a little unexpected.

The Polished Girl's Dungarees

Alexa Chung's play is a favourite for walking the line between dressed down and pulled together. She outfitted her basic pair of black dungarees with nothing more than a white t-shirt and a pair of cap-toe flats — but we love that she chose such ladylike footwear. It's another brilliant tomboy-meets-sweet style move from Miss Chung that we're plotting to steal.

The Dungaree Dress

If you're not into the long denim variety, this take still pays homage to the trend, albeit with a shorter, girlier cut. Not only does it show off your stems, but it looks even better dressed up with a silky tee and a pair of great heels.

The Sophisticate's Dungarees

Sure, we've always layered up underneath our dungarees — but it's her jacket layered over them that makes the difference here. We love that she took a more sophisticated approach with a crisp white button-up underneath and a tailored coat over top. To finish, she added a touch of femininity with ankle-strap heels. The result is nothing like the dungarees we styled up in middle school.
