When you think of the most versatile item in your closet, worn-in jeans, a classic white T-shirt, or a pair of functional black booties probably comes to mind. But, it’s time to look past the basics and consider a new staple for spring: the pinafore dress.
Pinafore is not a word usually associated with a contemporary wardrobe. But trends have a no-holds barred approach to references, and pinnies are chief among them for spring.
The pinafore is an overalls-dress hybrid that’s taking the fashion world by storm. Whether you choose to wear it with a skin-baring crop top or dress it down with a plain white T-shirt, you’ll get a lot of use out of the dress this season.
Now for me black is always a safe bet but if you really want to amp up the 70s factor and tap into the new season’s colour trends, opt for rusts, burnt orange shades or deep olive greens instead. Denim will also work well. With the majority of styles feature mini hemlines, if you are looking for a more sophisticated take on things, go for a midi style instead.
