Styling Super Funky Lucy And Yak Dungarees!

29th March 2019

Hey everyone!

I was going to start this post by saying I’m incredibly excited to be uploading this but then I realised I’ve actually started quite a few posts that way. I wanted to put even more emphasis on the fact I’m REALLY EXCITED to be working with Lucy and Yak. I’ve been admiring their products and to be honest everything about their business for quite a while now and I just know by the end of this post, you will too!

A Little More On Lucy And Yak

Lucy And Yak dungarees were the first thing that drew me in from the brand. Upon browsing further, I realised there’s an incredible amount of beautiful clothing items on offer as well as the company being ethical, working towards being sustainable and just all-round lovely. You can read their full story on their site here if you’re interested in Lucy and Chris’ journey to setting up the company! It’s inspiring and full of love and passion so I’d highly recommend it.

All of their clothing is made in India and they make sure the tailors creating their clothes are paid more than a fair wage. It actually states on their website that they are paid 4 times the state minimum wage over there! On top of that, following their sustainable ethos, they’re hopefully eventually going to be running off of completely renewable energy from solar panels which is fabulous news! 

As promised on the website, my Lucy And Yak dungarees arrived in a 100% recycled and reusable material bag and then were packaged inside a 100% biodegradable mail bag. They also came with a cute little thank you/information card and a returns slip which are both made from recycled paper

If all of this fabulous information isn’t enough to make you fall in love with Lucy And Yak, in addition to all of their incredible permanent offerings, they also work with artists to release limited edition items with really funky and individual prints on them. Which is exactly what the dungarees I have chosen are! The design is called “Hinke” and they are yellow, red and black tartan. I honestly don’t think I could be more in love with them. The print and colours are the perfect combination of alternative, funky and honestly just everything I love. The material is 100% cotton and they are actually 100% organic, too!

Casual Styling of “Hinke” Lucy And Yak Dungarees

I’m not going to lie, I’m one of those people who is either at one end or the other with my appearance. I’m usually either full face and fabulous fashion or old baggy t-shirt and leggings with no makeup. I definitely feel like I need to find an in between though and these Lucy And Yak dungarees might just be it. Super comfortable but still funky, as easy to dress up as to dress down and perfect with a plain or statement tee and comfy trainers. 

Casual styling of Lucy and Yak dungarees

The way I’ve styled this outfit is casual but still pretty smart and cute. I decided to pair it with a white Boohoo statement tee that has a line drawing of lips and displays the words ‘love is love’. Only wearing one side tied up gives the ultimate laid back vibe and also lets everyone see how cute the logo and statement on your tee is. The Vans are from the Lazy Oaf collaboration range, they’re pink, black and white with checkerboard laces and despite the print clash I think they go perfectly and add a great element of character to the outfit. 

Alternative Styling of “Hinke” Lucy And Yak Dungarees

I don’t think I’ve ever looked so confident and sassy in photographs as I do in these. I absolutely LOVE this outfit. I’m always one for black and tartan as I’ve always been a gothic fashion lover but I honestly just feel like this outfit is kind of a dream come true. The baby heart sleeved top is from Bershka which is one of my absolute favourite places to shop. They’ve recently (and FINALLY) opened a store in Bristol and I am over the moon as I’m constantly browsing their site. Another amazing thing is that it’s opened just across from Monki, another of my favourite stores. Guess who’s going into their overdraft?! 

I’ve also just realised whilst I’m writing this that the shoes I’m wearing in this outfit are another Lazy Oaf collaboration, oops. This time they are with Dr Martens though. If you know me, you’ll know I have a hell of a collection of Dr Martens and these are for sure one of my favourite pairs. Suede, double soled with the cutest little pink hearts indented on the heel. I feel like they really bring this entire outfit together along with my gorgeous new super expensive £3 shades from Primark and a Bobbi Brown red lipstick (gifted) in the shade “Russian Doll“.

Fun fact: these are actually my first ever pair of dungarees as I always thought I was too short and a tad too chubby for them. Luckily, my mindset has changed and I think I absolutely rock them now. Along with the fact that Lucy and Yak give the option of a 30″ leg for us vertically challenged people. Not going to lie, I did still have to roll them up a little bit but to be honest I think they look much cooler rolled up anyway! Also, they have 3 POCKETS, AND THEY’RE DECENTLY SIZED. What a dream. I am entirely in love with them and cannot wait to try some other Lucy And Yak dungarees as well as maybe a boiler suit, sweater and some trousers… I can already hear my bank account screaming.

How would you style funky Lucy And Yak dungarees?

    You are killing it with your outfit! Oooh, Lucy and Yak Dungarees sounds like an interesting brand. I like that they are about being ethical. Big plus that they’re running off of renewable energy. I really like how the overalls look. They do a great job of making clothes look stylish!

  12. Chloe Chats says:

    I’ve heard of Lucy and Yak from someone at work, they bought dungarees from there recently, and since then I’ve loved them! These dungaree’s are so cool, you rock them! I’m not one for a lot of colour most of the time, so I’d be worried I wouldn’t suit these but that’s definitely just in my head and the whole not got great confidence thing haha.

      They are awesome aren’t they?! Thank you so much hehe, I feel so confident in them! Luckily, they have loads of designs including singular colour dungarees, I deffo want to get the black cord ones at some point, they’re so cute! Xx

  13. You look absolutely amazing in these dungarees, they are the bees knees x

  14. These dungarees are so cute! Very unique, which I love, and you styled them great!

  15. I’ve never heard of this brand but I really want to check them out. Love that they’re ethical and sustainable too, always a bonus! I’ve never owned a pair of dungarees but I think they look really cute and they’re so versatile too so I definitely might invest in a pair for Spring / Summer! Also, you look like an actual movie star in these photos Alice!

  16. I’ve never heard of Lucy and Yak until you mentioned them to me and now I’ve made the mistake of looking on their website. I’ve fell in love with a pair of their dungarees, they’re pink with white polkadots and they’re literally so me! You look incredible in these photos, so confident and beautiful. I’m actually glad you went for those sunglasses in Primark in the end as they’re definitely very ‘you’ and top the outfit off nicely. I actually can’t decide which outfit I prefer, you’ve styled these so well and admittedly they do look pretty tricky to style without just opting for a plain t-shirt which is what I’d end up doing. I love the ethics of Lucy and Yak, that everything is eco-friendly and their workers get paid a proper wage. I need to talk myself out of getting these pink dungarees as I’m trying to be good with money but THEY’RE SO PRETTY.

    I’ve never heard of this brand but I am into brands that are ethical and sustainable, the fact that they pay their workers well is amazing, not many companies even care about that at all. I will have to check them out. And the dungarees look amazing on you!

  18. Kayla Jayne says:

    I’ve been eyeing up Lucy and Yak for such a long time, I’m thinking of getting a pair of their dungaree’s next month. Are they like light and airy? I think they’d be a perfect throw on for when I go away in the summer!

  19. I am OBSESSED with these dungarees!!! I love both of the outfits you put together and will admit you’ve styled them in a way I’d most likely do (although I might swap out dark trainers for a white pair of Converse because I live in mine!) I haven’t got any dungarees either, but deffo think I need a pair now. Side note; I’m loving the photos for this post – you look bloody fab 😍😍❤️❤️
