Think pinafores and what immediately comes to your mind is your own school attire – braided hair, Mary Janes and pinafores. Well, the pinafore is more than just school garb. It is the most versatile garment and can be styled in myriad of ways to make you look chic for the summer, stylish for the monsoon, layered up for the winter or just give you the back-to-school feeling. It is a classic piece that you’ll even ditch your jeans for and is great for a throw-on-and-go look. So here, we give you five ways you could style you pinafore, which you could throw on and dress according to the occasion:
1. For an effortless everyday look:
Team up a classic black and white striped t-shirt with a denim pinafore. A easy-to-wear yet elegant look for everyday. You could also wear a crop top instead of a full tee and show some skin. Wear a pair of oxfords below or put on some pretty sneakers. You could try a headscarf too.
2. Jacketed and Booted
A nice denim/leather jacket worn over a regular pinafore + tee and black ankle-length boots – classic.
3. Winter wear
A comfy turtleneck underneath your pinafore and some high-knee boots for when the cold kicks in.
4. Heel up
Pinafores can actually make their way to your work wardrobe if you wear a chunky Peter Pan collar top/high collar shirt inside your pinafore and a belt on your waist. Team it up with a pair of ankle-length boots with heels.
5. Pinafore with tights:
A pinafore worn as a tunic and tucked with a belt with black tights below and a colorful long cardigan will bring out the hidden fashionista in you.
