Back from the past, dungarees are no longer associated with children’s fashion. Today, these playsuits are back in vogue for grownups too. While traditional shorts may be great for a day in the park, one of our tailored full-length jumpsuits are super versatile. With simple changes to styling, it can be taken from daytime to evening wear. We even have the best selection of dungaree denim skirts online in India. Ladies dungarees have come a long way, and you can find ours at Koovs.com.
The Origins of Dungarees
While they’re synonymous with overalls today, did you know the term ‘dungaree’ originated from India? First used to describe a thick, coarse cotton perfect for work uniforms of labourers, “dungri” was exported from the docks of Mumbai to England. Along the way, “dungri” became “dungaree” and the plural form “dungarees” was used for overalls made from dungaree fabric. Want to know the difference between dungaree and denim? It’s all in timing of the dying process; denim is dyed after the fabric is made, whereas these uses pre-coloured yarn. Popularized in the late 1940s and a fashion mainstay by the 1950s, these are back in vogue yet again. Here’s how you can wear yours today.
Women Dungarees for Any Occasion
A dungaree denim dress is perfect for a day in the park, or a trek outdoors. Toss one on over a t-shirt and you’ve got a stylish, comfortable look to move and play in. Take our dungarees for women to work with the right cut, style and fit. Aim for a tailored, neutral-toned jumpsuit to get an office-friendly look. Dress it up for a night in the town by adding a beautiful off-the-shoulder blouse underneath and accessories to accompany.

What to Wear with your New Dungarees
As a kid, you probably stuck to wearing t-shirts underneath. As an adult, you can level up your jumpsuit game to stand out from the crowd. Pair it with a tank or a bandeau top for an edgier ensemble. Go for a t-shirt, but make it a crop top tee for the same effect. Don’t discount our dungaree dresses for women on date night; for a romantic look, you can add a flowy, lace top underneath your favourite jumpsuit.
