Style Sunday: The Casual Pinafore Dress

May 11, 2014 | Style | No Comments

There are very few garments that you will remember from your childhood that you would still choose to wear today…and I’m not talking about some grown-ass woman trying to look like a small child. Nope friends, I’m talking about the pinafore. This is one of garments that seems to just get better with age. It can be smart and sassy for work with precise tailoring, or it can be functional for day-today with lots of roomy pockets, or it can be super comfy and slouchy – I love it in all it’s forms.  This cute and casual take on the pinafore dress, £60 from ASOS really caught my eye- I mean, if this isn’t a wardrobe staple, then I’m not really sure what is!
