We absolutely love our super-comfy, soft cotton cord dungarees here at Nomads, but we also totally understand when customers tell us they’re not quite sure how to style them.

When you think of little pinafore dresses and relaxed long-leg dungarees, you might not be able to picture yourself wearing them – particularly if you’re a lady of a certain age.

However, we’re here to show you just how easy it is to pull together a brilliantly stylish and age-appropriate outfit featuring both our needlecord dungarees and textured cotton pinafores.

And in case you’re a little nervous about wearing dungarees in your later years, here are some not-so-youngsters absolutely rocking the trend:

Look One

Needlecord Dungaree Pinafore Dress, Dandelion

Cap Sleeve Double Layer Top, White

Artisan Block Print Sarong, Dandelion


Add some artistic flair to this classic pinafore look by pairing our bold dungaree dress with a floaty white t-shirt and matching hand-printed scarf. Made from lightweight cotton, our artisan scarf can be tied however you wish – here we’ve chosen a sophisticated ‘NYC Knot’ to really show off the beautiful print. Finish with a pair of crisp white pumps (or tights and ankle boots if it’s not quite warm enough for bare legs!) to complete this sunshine-inspired look.

Look Two

Pinafore Tunic Dress, Storm

½ Sleeve Organic Cotton T-Shirt, Teal

An ideal look for work or any slightly more formal occasion, our pinafore dress comes in a classic shape that’s easy to layer-up or dress down. We recommend making the most of those gorgeous blues and popping a comfy teal ½ Sleeve Organic T-Shirt underneath. Pair with smart ankle boots and dark tights for a timeless and oh-so-chic look.

Look Three

Needlecord Dungaree Pinafore Dress, Teal

Tresco Tunic Shirt, Citrus

Plain Handloom Woven Scarf, Citrus

If you fancy something a bit bolder, try layering one of our gorgeous printed shirts underneath our plain Dungaree Pinafore Dress for a beautifully bright look. The classic buttoned shirt will add a more ‘grown-up’ element to the overall outfit, whilst pumps and a pretty scarf will keep everything looking comfy and casual.

Look Four

Pinafore Tunic Dress, Pine

Plain Pintuck Cotton Shirt, Citrus

Plain Handloom Woven Scarf, Teal

Our best-selling Pintuck Cotton Shirt gets a fresh, contemporary twist with this layered look. We love how it can be both smart and casual with traditional Pintuck detailing and roll up button tab sleeves. Pair with some of our matching Organic Cotton leggings on chillier days, or dress down with a pretty white vest come summertime.

Look Five

Needlecord Dungarees, Teal

½ Sleeve Organic T-Shirt, White

Petal Viscose Scarf, Turquoise

Textured Knit Organic-Cotton Jumper, Apricot

You asked for full-length blue dungarees, and we listened! Made from a mid-lightweight cotton cord with roomy side pockets for that mega-relaxed look, our comfy dungarees are the easiest first-step into embracing the dungarees trend. Keep things simple with a plain Organic Cotton T-Shirt underneath, and then add a little fun on top with one of our gorgeous printed scarves! Simple!

So those are our tips on how to style this season's much-loved dungarees and pinafores! If you do have a go yourself, be sure to snap a picture of you in your new threads and share it on social media with the hashtag #WearingNomads... you might be featured on our website!
