A Scandi Staple - Dungarees

A Scandi Staple - Dungarees

I don't know about you but when I buy clothes for my young son, I look for clothes that are not only visually appealing but are also really versatile. When my eldest son was a few months old I discovered overalls, otherwise known as dungarees and I've never looked back.

Dungarees are the essential staple of many Scandi wardrobes. They’re perfect for kids to play and explore both indoors and out, all year round.


Best of all, dungarees are incredibly easy to style. You can mix and match them with just about anything. Layers can be added or subtracted as the weather changes and as mess is created (which is inevitable with young kids!).

When it comes to babies, I love adding a printed bodysuit underneath plain coloured dungarees. It’s simple, it looks adorable and my little one is always nice and comfortable. When we’re feeling like more colour I turn to dungarees that have a print (such as Duns or Maxomorra) and I put a solid coloured bodysuit underneath. Voila, easy.


Dungarees are available in a wide range of sizes beginning at newborn sizing. Duns Sweden make dungarees that go to a size 122cm, which will fit children up to approximately 7 years of age. The bigger sizing allows kids to enjoy dungarees as a part of their childhood for even longer.

Charlie is wearing a size 122 pair of Duns Sweden Balloon Dungarees. As you can see they fit well and are comfortable to play in.

I've sourced dungarees in a variety of fabrics, including denim, cotton, corduroy & deliciously soft velour. Some are plain coloured and some have amazing prints that kids just can’t get enough of. 

If you haven't yet tried dungarees, make sure you give them a chance soon. I guarantee you that it will be love.

A huge thank you goes to Martha and her two gorgeous kids for testing out some of our dungarees and taking some beautiful snaps.
