Today's post is inspired by a recent purchase as I finally caved and picked myself up a pair of black denim dungarees. Although lots of bloggers have been rocking this trend recently it's also one that some people seem to be shying away from, feeling unsure what to pair them with. Today I thought I would turn to some stylish celebrities for a few more ideas on how to step out of your comfort zone and feel confident to wear this trend. If you're struggling with how to style these comfy all-in-ones here are five looks to help inspire you...
1. Emma Watson | Simply Monochrome
Emma's classic look pairs simple black dungarees with a wardrobe staple white cotton blouse. The look is completed with comfortable slip on flats and a pair of stylish sunglasses. If you're unsure of how to wear dungarees Emma's monochrome look is the perfect way to ease yourself into the trend.

2. Alexa Chung | Perfect Layering
Alexa's take on the trend sees her pair a classic trench coat, plain shirt and comfortable moccasin style shoes with a more statement white pair of dungarees. This option is a perfect example of how layers can be worn both over and under dungarees - another great way to experiment with the trend.

the dungarees for a more feminine touch. The look comes to life with the
