A few days ago, a 1996 sealed Super Mario 64 video game sold for almost 1.3 million Euros in an auction, breaking all records. And, not only are collectable video games like Nintendo’s Super Mario Bros hotter than ever, the dungarees the famous plumber wears are an inspiration for summer and fall trends.
In fact, Super Mario’s practical dungarees are slowly replacing sweatpants in summer 2021. That is because baggy dungarees are as comfortable as track pants but more stylish and fun to wear. Not to mention the practicability of all those pockets! And because there are so many different styles of overalls, we’re sure you’ll find the right one for you here, to wear until the end of summer and throughout fall too.

Baggy dungarees for a casual look
Mango’s wide-leg dungarees are my personal favourite, especially for summer. A bit slouchy, they are quite flattering and easy to wear. Additionally, they are so versatile; they look great with sneakers or any of the summer 21 sandal trends.
If you’re looking for extra comfort, these Girlfriend dungarees in soft recycled cotton with a hint of stretch give you freedom of movement, even if you’re planning to spend the afternoon on the couch, playing Super Mario.
Can you wear dungarees to the office?
You’ll be pleased to know that with the right styling, your dungarees can look elevated enough so that you can wear them to the office. In other words, combine the Pacha Flame overalls with a blazer, strappy sandals, and a bold booch for a business lunch.
Likewise, pair these Monki black tailored dungarees with a button-up shirt and loafers, and you’re ready for your Monday meeting.
If you are among the lucky women who want to emphasize their wasp waists, these Isabel Marant belted dungarees are for you. We just love the fabulous raspberry pink hue, which you should pair with purple or orange, as we saw at Valentino Couture Fall 21 runway show.
Otherwise, go for striped overalls by Asos Design that you can wear from the beach to the office.
Versatile in earthy colours
Earthy colours and minimalist cut make these next ones extremely versatile. Osklen’s wide-legged overalls in 100% cotton look great with flip-flops in summer, but you can also wear them in fall with a jumper and ankle boots.
If Super Mario wore leather or corduroy dungarees
Was Super Mario the inspiration for Burberry’s leather trimmed dungarees? The colour is certainly exactly the same!
Off-white, for summer and fall
Embellished Super Mario dungarees
Miu Miu dungarees are a proof you can wear Super Mario inspired overalls to a party. Certainly, the pearl and crystal buttons make all the difference.
Hand-made, the overalls by Estonian label Relax Baby Be Cool come embellished with big golden buttons that scream party time!
And here are some other easy-to-wear summer trends that you can take to next season too.
