Velvet dungarees

A few weeks ago, I wondered into Monsoon, and immediately spotted one of the sales assistants wearing the most perfect black velvet dungarees. I had to have them.

Monsoon velvet dungarees
Dungarees – Monsoon, £30 (sale). Shoes – Dr Martens, £70 (sale). Tshirt – Zara, v old.

Being above average height, jumpsuits, playsuits, dungarees are always, always too short in the body (basically, they’re all up in my business). So I didn’t have high hopes when I tried them on, but they fitted like a dream.

They’ve got a slim ‘mom jeans’ style leg, with adjustable straps that come up the back.

On the front there are silver hoops, and some really lovely covered buttons on the side.

The velvet fabric makes them that little bit smarter, so that I can be team them up with a roll neck and brogues to be work appropriate. But I’m also loving chucking them on with a stripy tshirt and trainers at the weekend. Basically, I’m going to be living in these velvet dungarees for the rest of winter.
