Winter is here – hello fluffy jackets, cocoon coats and chunky scarves – but don’t for a second think this means you have to put your summer wardrobe away. Think layers and combine your summer vegan fashion favourites with autumn essentials. To show how easy it is to create three completely different looks with one garment, I’ve created three outfits with this floral-print dungaree. It works just as well during the colder months, trust me.
For this styling challenge, I took help from the Swedish vegan and sustainable fashion boutique Green Laces. This PETA-approved vegan fashion shop focuses on vegan brands that employ practices which are kind to humans and the planet, such as Matt and Nat, Veja and Bourgeois Boheme. They are located in central Stockholm – stop by next time you’re out and about in the Swedish capital.
Play around with patterns
For the first look, I’ve gone for a playful but classic striped top to wear underneath the dungaree. Don’t be afraid to mix different patterns and prints. By wearing these casual, pared-back sneakers, I’ve still kept the look very simple. Perfect for a weekend wander around town.
Transform your dungaree into trousers
A quick trick for versatility is to wear a top over the dungarees – voila, trousers. This look also features two current trends: the silver-tone sneakers and the fanny pack. Firstly, all the silver-hued details trending right now are ver welcome to my wardrobe! As for the fanny pack, I hated the touristy bag at first. Grandpa going on vacation in the 90s? No thanks. But after a while, I realised that those photos of my grandpa was something to get inspired by and fell for the fanny pack’s charms.
Make it office-appropriate
Yes, you can wear floral-print dungarees to the office. I matched mine with a black polo-neck knit, a grey checked jacket and a pair of androgynous shoes to add polish – but the floral print kept the look current and dynamic.
