The pinafore dress has been around for quite some while and over this time it has become a classic fashion item that has character and style. The look is quite familiar to most people and there are many color designs to choose from. If you are not yet familiar with this vintage fashion item, it is a sleeveless and collarless dress that is worn over a shirt or sweater. It is meant to be very practical and fashionable without being too revealing. More modern designs can also include a curvy shape that hugs the body to add a bit of sexy attitude to it. The length of the pinafore dress is usually just under the knee but the modern designs tend to be a bit shorter.
The classic shape makes it a very good choice for work because it is professional and also feminine. It is easy to wear with a nice shirt and it doesn’t require any big accessory as it already is a very imposing fashion item due to its history. On the other hand, it can be used as an important fashion statement because it represents strong and independent women; not to mention that it can look amazing on a curvy body.
The pinafore skirt can be found in many colors which makes it a great choice for this season where bright colors and geometric shapes are all around us. You can opt for a black and serious look or for a bright red that will surely stand out. Some designs tend to blend it with an apron in the sense that it has a naked back and it can be tied with strings; this style has also been reinvented this season.
Wearing this great fashion item can say many things because of its versatility and it is certainly something that will never go out of fashion; yet another reason why it belongs in your wardrobe. Many different shapes of the classic design were adopted by fashion designers but it seems that the base model is still the most popular. It has all the right characteristics of a timeless fashion item.
