It’s official. Dungarees are one of this season’s key looks. Granted, among the baby set they’ve never really gone out of style. But ever since Prince George was snapped in that navy blue Rachel Riley designer number with the smocked sailing boat motif they are most definitely back in fashion with a capital F.
In the wake of his appearance, the Rachel Riley Sailboat Smocked dungarees sold out in a matter of hours. Whether you (ahem) missed the boat, or just don’t fancy stumping up for the princely price-tag of £75, fear not.
