    Denim, as we already know, is big news for spring. As is the dungaree. Thankfully, high street-hero H&M has solved all our dungaree-dramas and come up with the most wearable (and affordable) trio of styles, to suit any body shape or sartorial preference.

    On the celebrity front, style-supremo Alexa Chung has been known to rock a blue pinafore version from her very own range for AG Jeans. Most notably worn with a white high-collar ruffle blouse and an old pair of suitably scruffed-up converse.

    On the catwalks, Margaret Howell and Richard Nicoll integrated the tricky all-in-one piece into their new-seaosn collections, worn under light trench coats and over button-up blouses.

    And on those sassy street stylers? Pretty much anything goes. We’re leaning towards a classic breton for our dungaree pairing. Possibly with a white plimsoll and a tan cross-body bag.

    Want to dress it up? Just add some gold hoops, a sleeveless silk blouse and some sky high platform heels.

    For a super-smart look, go with black. Off-duty dressing? Blue, naturally. And for those looking for something a little more statement, go for our favourite, the white wash.
