My Fashion Resolution For 2016


Winter Outfit Fashion Blog Post

Just before the New Year I received an exciting email from Boohoo about making a fashion resolution and what they meant by that was, 'what would I like to wear more of in 2016?' As soon as they asked I knew exactly what I'd had my eye on and had been wanting to try integrating into my wardrobe; dungarees. And not just any dungarees at that, I'm talking about black denim dungarees that still retained the look of my favourite black skinny jeans.

After a quick browse of the Boohoo site, I found exactly what I was looking for in the Suzie black dungarees*.

Boohoo Dungarees Review

Not only were they the perfect fit but as soon as I tried them on I thought of about twenty different ways that I could wear them. They also make me look like I've made a bit more of an effort than when I wear a t-shirt and jeans usually. I was particularly impressed with the quality of them and the fact that they fit my body and my curves without being too tight or too baggy. Now this isn't something that can be said for the dungarees that I had tried on via the High Street at the end of 2015.

Redhead Scottish Fashion Blogger

I had planned on showing you a completely monochrome outfit with the Suzie dungarees being paired with one of my favourite tops from Forever 21 (you should hopefully be able to see it peeking out from under my coat) but the weather really did have other plans. I was absolutely freezing even with my trusty New Look coat (as featured in it's own outfit post a few months ago) on, as you might be able to tell from my little rosy red nose. I also threw on a pair of old Primark boots that I didn't mind getting a little bit ruined in the snow, instead of my new shoes which I had planned on debuting. Can you tell that I'm not exactly a pro fashion blogger? But I did get some pictures in front of the snow so surely that must count for something? Hehe.

Denim Dungarees

I'm absolutely over the moon with my new black denim dungarees and I'm really glad that thanks to Boohoo I finally found a pair that worked for me.

What trend or piece of clothing or accessory would you like to wear more of in 2016? Are you a fan of denim dungarees such as these? And would you like to see more outfit posts on Ellis Tuesday this year?

    1. Thanks Lee! :)
      I struggled to find a pair that I liked as well until I found these. Plus they are such a Boohoo bargain too!

  3. I have always wanted to invest in a pair of dungarees as it's so out of my comfort zone but maybe I should give it a try.

  4. Hi, Ellis! Love the dungarees and your outfit! :)
    I don't own dungarees myself (I wish I did!) but I think I love them more in denim, more casual look.
    And this year I would totally go for more skirts and dresses. :) And maybe even high heels? :O I never wear high heels on a weekday...That would be a big one for me. :)
