I look at those pictures of Alexa Chung in her dungarees and think yes, I love that look! But when I have put them on in the past, I really do feel like a painter/decorator or mechanic.

I think the key is if you are not waif like, go for a boyfriend cut as it is more forgiving and easier to wear.

I just love this pair from La Redoute. The cut is the perfect boyfriend, the material is super soft and really light so it’s great for the summer.

La Redoute is a fantastic source of well priced clothes. The big advantage is that you do not run into people wearing the same piece, which is the danger with H&M .

I have styled them here with an Alexander Wang t-shirt and Celine Slides. As it was overcast today in Marbella, these dungarees were perfect.

I love the drape and the pale blue colour.

I have layered the dungarees with this great Isabel Marant jacket- the perfect spring jacket.

A lot of dungarees have no give in them and are really uncomfortable, but these ones from La Redoute are so easy to wear. I have added a bit of colour with my latest preloved find- this great Bottega bag from eBay.

The cut is flattering on the leg, which with a boyfriend is so important.

I actually prefer to wear dungarees in the evening with heels and a cashmere cardigan. This pink one is from Marks and Spencer and the shoes are Valentino, which I found on Vestaire Collective, and the bag is preloved from Shush. .

I will be featuring some other great pieces I have picked up in the next few days. La Redoute has a two for one offer on at the moment.
