Styling Dungaree: Grungy vs Swaggie

A Dungaree is a type of garment which features trousers and includes a bib that is held up by straps over the shoulders. It is usually made from thick fabrics such as denim. In the Philippines it is commonly referred to as  a 'Jumper.'

Based on my previous posts, you could say that I am very adventurous when it comes to dressing up. 
I just love trying out new things, or spicing up an old manner of wearing clothes and making it fresher and more original to the eye; an example of the latter is what this post can be categorized as.

Wearing dungarees are most popular in the mid-1900's, and since I believe that fashion trends come and go; I thought why not wear one today? 
Doing just that, I was able to create two very different looks featuring one kickass dungaree that I got online.

Here's the first look:

- For the first look, I decided to go grungy(surprise, surprise!)
Dungarees are always affiliated with grunge because of its effortless yet stylish feel. 
Aside from dungarees, plaid and creepers are also staples for the grunge culture; thus making me incorporate all these for the first look.

For the second look, I decided to go for something urban. This is because I've been obsessing over hip hop lately, so without further a do here's my second take:

Don't I look so Swaggie!? LOL
anyway, this look gave me a confidence boost for it matches the songs that i'm recently listening to. 
Heck, i'm even rapping from time to time while posing this shoot LOL!

And that's it!

I honestly can't decide which one looks better, could you help me by commenting on this post?

Good Sport

Like most people, I'm fond of exploring new things; and this is also applicable when i'm dressing myself up. I just love composing outfits with certain characters in mind resulting into a completely new look that I actually find likable, and the outfit that I wore one school day is not an exception of my exploration hobby. 

As you can see, this outfit is super sporty. 
This is because I have a Varsity/Baseball tee on together with some Nike Jordans.
But the thing that I love the most in this outfit are the bright and bold colors that're featured in it. 

To emphasize the presence of the bold colors, I topped off my outfit with this quirky and equally colorful comic-strip inspired cap. :)

J's on my feet! :D

- That's about it :) oh and shoutout to my girls who went crazy with me for this shoot:
