Styles and cuts from the 60’s and 70’s are a definite trend for Fall/Winter 2015-2016, so it’s no surprise that the pinafore has been making a comeback.
Also called a jumper, a pinafore is a dress that has straps and a bib resembling an apron. While usually worn in youth, pinafores have been updated for the adult crowd, but they still maintain a cutesy vibe that was popular when pinafores were worn as mod style.
Pinafores come in a variety of styles and fabrics, so they can really be worn anywhere if you style them to the occasion. The wide straps and open sides encourage you to wear whatever you want underneath – from t-shirts to long sleeve blouses to turtlenecks – making them versatile and wearable in almost any situation.
Here are some stylish pinafores to get you started on this trend:
FAUX LEATHER DRESS
The faux leather and forest green colour makes this pinafore chic and stylish. Wear it to the office during the day and for after-work drinks at night.
JUMPSUIT WITH STRAPS
This casual pinafore can be worn with a turtleneck or t-shirt for a weekend brunch. We love how it’s styled here with combat boots to give it a little more edge.
PINAFORE MAXI DRESS IN SPACE DYE
Pinafores don’t always have to be short. This maxi pinafore is stylish and comfortable – ideal for weekend errands or getaways.
SISTER JANE RISING FLOWER PINAFORE DRESS IN FAUX SUEDE
Combine two trends in one with this pinafore that’s made in faux suede. The flower decal is sweet and really adds to the mod-vibe that pinafores automatically have.
DENIM ALINE BUTTON THROUGH PINAFORE DRESS IN WASHED BLACK
This denim pinafore with front buttons is reminiscent of 90’s style. I’m sure I wore one or two of these in my class photos. We like it styled here with a turtleneck, but you can wear it with a blouse to dress it up a bit.
INVERNESS WOOL BLEND PINAFORE DRESS BY UNIQUE
This crisp white pinafore is a dressier option. Wear it in the office with a pussybow blouse to stay stylish and professional.
INVERNESS CHECKED WOOL PINAFORE DRESS BY UNIQUE
The check pattern really brings out this pinafore’s retro style. Pair it with ankle boots, knee highs, and a sleek black turtleneck to stay 60’s-chic.
