pinafore galore

Thursday, 30 June 2016


So if you know me you will know that I am utterly obsessed with the classic pinafore, and I am SO happy that they have come back into fashion these past few months (hopefully as are you, if you're reading this post). And I love them so much that yes, this whole post is dedicated to them. Now okay I will admit that sometimes I do feel a bit stupid, you know being nineteen and walking round in a pinafore which traditionally is probably something you grew up wearing in primary school. But hey, us fashion lovers are working hard on making them totally cool again. So in this post I'll be showing off three different pinafore looks that I am absolutely loving! And get comfortable this is a bit of a long one..


Now this first one is a simple ribbed dark blue pinafore and this was from boohoo, now my favourite way of styling this pinafore is with a high turtle neck stripy crop top. The contrast of the stripes against the plain and simply designed pinafore just works. This crop top is also from boohoo as you may tell already I am just slightly obsessed with this online store (uhum i mean completely obsessed... RIP bank account). Although I may have been slightly over ambitious while still trying to convince myself that I'm a size 8 on top, as what is suppose to be a crop top fits me as an extreme crop top if you know what I mean. Not flattering at all, but hey that's where the wonders of a pinafore comes in as I find that these are great for not so good body positive days. Plus come on they are the comfiest things in the world, and you can totally get passed as a person that has seemed to have made an effort while inside you're just enjoying the comfort of zero zips, buttons, the lot. LIFE IS GREAT.


Now I feel that this can pretty much be worn at any time of the year, during winter you just style it up with a pair of doc martens and tights, a nice beanie and you're good to go. Or for the summer a pair of converse, sunglasses and embrace those pail legs that you've been hiding away all year. Although if you live in the UK like me then you'll realise that the chance of us having a day hot enough to get your legs out is very rare!


This next pinafore was actually the first ever pinafore I owned. When i bought this I had to really push myself to wear it as I've not always been too confident with wearing what I've wanted. I have this fear that if I wear something maybe a little different that I'll stand out and people will look at me, with being as shy as I was it was a daunting thought. But my confidence with fashion has thankfully started to grow! Now there are a few options of what to wear this pinafore with, I bought this from boohoo (wow shocker).. and the best thing is guess where this crop top is from. Hmm possible boohoo you ask? Yes you are 100% correct! sorry guys, i can't resist. Now this duo is just the most beautiful thing ever, although the only down point of this pinafore is if you have extremely long legs like myself it will look more like a belt and just about cover your butt, So be sure to wear some thick tights with it. I'd say this is more of a winter outfit unless you match it up with a bright flowery shirt.


Again you could pair this up with a pair of black doc martens or even a little pair of black boots as this pinafore is quite a delicate piece of clothing. The pinafore should definitely be the star of the show so be careful not to over power it with something that might take the attention away from it. Bow down to the pinafore.


Last but not least, probably my favourite right now out of the three (shh don't tell the others!). This is my beautiful and slightly pricey denim pinafore and hey, its not from boohoo! This here is from Urban outfitters. Also known as my guilty pleasure, the place I pretend that I can afford when in reality I'm totally a broke B**ch (excuse my language). One of the main reasons that I am so in love with this item is because it can be paired up with a variety of tops/jumpers/shirts. It pretty much seems to work with anything and that makes me incredibly happy, who doesn't love an easily changeable outfit.



This pinafore can be worn in the summer, winter, spring, autumn, ANYTIME. Paired up with a thin pair of tights and little brown boots. I must say that this one does speak for itself and if you're not already a pinafore owner, definitely think about investing in a plain denim pinafore to begin with and go from there!
