They have been worn by generations of workmen and toddlers, and in the 1990s they became a style staple for grown ups. And this season dungarees are back.

They were all over the catwalks of London Fashion Week earlier this year, with fashionistas such as Alexa Chung and Pixie Lott leading the way.

This time around there’s host of different styles to choose from in the high street, from stone-washed and black denim to cute checked pinafore dresses.

This is an eclectic look that can be dressed down with a t-shirt and baseball boots for slouching around at the weekend, or dressed with a smart shirt and heels for the office.

And with many of the supermarket and value brands picking up on the trend, your new season dungarees won’t break the bank.

Even if you're not in the first flushes of youth you can still pull off the look – if you wore them first time round in the 90s, why not give them another go? There’s a dungaree style to suit every age, body shape and wallet.
