Children’s dungarees from l-r: Verbaudet / La Redoute, H&M, Tootsa Macginty
As a 12 year old nearly-teenager, I wanted more than anything in the world to have a pair of patchwork, cropped dungarees. Other fashion ‘inspirations’ at the time were big floppy hats a la Blossom, home made tie-dye, and anything worn by Clarissa Explains It All. Don’t blame me, blame the 90’s.
I never actually got a pair, which can only be a good thing. However, according to this article in The Observer, dungarees are back. Dungarees as an adult…? Unsurprisingly, it’s a big no from me.
However, if we’re talking about dungarees for babies…then bring them on. I love the unisex appeal as well as the cute and practical style. So here’s my round-up of the best children’s dungarees available to buy at the moment:
- Eliza currently has the cream corduroy pair for boys, apparently, from Vertbaudet (top left, and also photo from today on the left, looking like a mini member of Mumford and Sons)
- I have my eye on the denim heart cropped pair from H&M for her – middle photo – I love the children’s clothes section, it’s even better than the adult’s clothes. And so cheap too
- And then surely the king of all children’s bib-fronted unisex fashion is the dungarees loving Tootsa MacGinty. You can get them in red as above, as well as blue. And in the sale too.
So dungarees…would you?
