How To Style Dungarees | With A Bejeweled Beanie & Polka Dots

beanie, polka dot blazer, dungarees & red brogues
I have to admit I haven’t really worn my dungarees since the summer, but when I saw this outfit I immediately pinned it for future overalls inspiration.

I probably would have tried the shirt and a neck bowtie with it except for the fact that my shirt was in the wash, and I’ve been wearing the Primark white gem beanie so much since I got it before Christmas that I was desperate to swap the black hat for my bejeweled beauty. (And at £3 full price it certainly knocks the socks off the Markus Lupfer tiara beanie which is nearly 50 times the price…!)

So Pinterest wins again. But I still think that taking inspiration from others’ outfits and “making do” with what you’ve got results in some new and interesting combinations. Sure, I wore my red brogues and a blazer like Beth did in her outfit, but it’s not a direct copy I’m glad to say (and that would be a bit boring, wouldn’t it).

I haven’t seen many bloggers wearing bejeweled beanies – do you have one, or would you consider getting one? Let me know (oh and please don’t forget to – details at the bottom)!

    The only person I have seen wearing a bejeweled beanie is Elisa Nalin and hers is by Paule Ka. I think you carry it off really well and I suspect it wont be long before we do see more of this look, especially now that we have seen it on you πŸ™‚ Me, I am still loving the unembellished soft slouchy beanies.

    • 3 February 2014 / 9:51 pm

      Oooh yes I like the slouchy ones too. But then I think I love all hats…! Thank you sweetie x

    Seriously though? so adorable! I love these oxfords and I'm crushing more and more on them!

    • 3 February 2014 / 9:49 pm

      Aww bless you Brandi, that's lovely of you thank you!!!!! I do gaze at the red beauties a bit at home, I can't bear to put them away in my wardrobe (they're too pretty)!

    Of course I voted for you. You know you can count on me, being a fan. And no I do not wear a beanie. Doesn't suit me at all and my thin hair looks aweful when I would take it off.

    • 3 February 2014 / 9:48 pm

      You're brilliant – Greetje – knew I could rely on you my lovely friend!! I know what you mean about the beanie, but I tend to wear hats when my hair already looks awful, haha!! x

    You are a fearless fashionista, dear Catherine!! The "overalls" look (long, short, even skirted!) seems to be making a big style splash right now…and here you are, showing us just how great it can look with a mix of fun and sophisticated accessories!! As is often the case, I am in awe!! By the way, I do NOT own a jewelled beanie…but I would love to find one as great as your white version here!!

    • 3 February 2014 / 9:47 pm

      Thanks Monika – I love your "fearless" description of me – to be honest I kind of think of myself as more "couldn't care less", meaning whether anyone thinks I look a bit daft or not… a contradiction I know, as I'm posting these outfits and love all your comments!!! I hope you know what I mean :))

      Sorry I'm a bit super frazzled today – brain is mush and I probably won't make any sense!!!

    Love the shoes Catherine. You look fab as always.

    • 1 February 2014 / 11:11 pm

      Very sweet of you Elsie – thank you!

  11. 1 February 2014 / 1:59 am

    Well, this is just dang cute. I wore the hell out of overalls (that's what we Americans call dungarees) back in the 90s. I loved those things. Love the red shoes.

    • 1 February 2014 / 11:11 pm

      You know, I think these are actually the first pair I've ever owned – I've not thought about it before. Sleeveless jumpsuits I've had, but not dungarees… or overalls!! Thank you hun x

  12. 31 January 2014 / 10:37 pm

    love the dotty jacket and the red brogues – super cool!

    • 1 February 2014 / 11:10 pm

      I definitely think the beanie makes it, doesn't it Irene – thank you!

  13. 31 January 2014 / 9:16 pm

    Okay you are honestly the coolest and I'm obsessed with you. I'm beginning to think you can pull off anything.

      Oh wow, Daryl – what a fabulous compliment!!! That's so nice of you!!! =thank you=

    • 1 February 2014 / 11:08 pm

      They certainly get attention wherever I go, Pam…! Thank you my lovely x

  14. 31 January 2014 / 6:44 pm

    I love this look! Definitely gonna try out my beanie with dungarees now.

    • 1 February 2014 / 11:08 pm

      And brogues! Don't forget your brogues, heehee!!

  15. 31 January 2014 / 6:11 pm

    Oh Catherine this is definitely a new favorite for me for sure!!!!!!!!

    • 1 February 2014 / 11:08 pm

      A little bit influenced by your eclectic style I think, Brooke!!!! Thank you so much :))

    Loving the red shoes, you could get lost in OZ with those πŸ™‚ xx

    • 1 February 2014 / 11:07 pm

      Not thought of that before – like a tomboyish Dorothy!! Thanks sweetie x

  17. 31 January 2014 / 4:11 pm

    You look amazing as always! Great beanie and you've totally changed my mind about dungarees!

    I'm also going bejewelled for my latest post πŸ™‚

      Oh my, Claudia I've just checked out your bling… it looks stunning! Such a great idea to wear a statement necklace over a coat.

      Thanks for your lovely comments – and does that mean you'll be shopping for dungarees now…?!! x
