THE STYLE EDITION: THE PINAFORE DRESS DO’S AND DON’TS

 Now that the weather has quite frankly gone to shit, right on queue might I add, it’s time to hit submit on all things cosy and chunky knit. With the rain and cold weather all coming into play, the pressure to whip up some autumn/winter content is on. ‘I really like this jumper because it’s nice’ is not overly my (excuse the pun) style. I don’t enjoy writing a purely focused style post, just for the sake of writing it. With that being said, I haven’t shared much on this topic with you in a while so I wanted to pull something together, whilst throwing a witty spin on it… did you expect any less?

The pinafore dress, what a tricky little number to get right. The risk of looking a little ‘oops baby’ Britney Spears circa 1998 is fairly high. Drop the title pinafore and you’ve essentially got a layered dress. Perfect for when you want to smarten up a look without any effort i.e snoozed the alarm to the point of no return. It’s a great throw-over piece and best of all, keeps you oh so warm (unless you go bare legged like me – brave or what).

I’ve had this khaki piece for a good few years now, it’s one of those items that goes into the ‘throw out’ pile all the time but then somehow claws it’s way back into my wardrobe. I just can’t part with it and I’m so pleased that I come to senses each time as it’s incredibly flattering on me. The colour works with my skin tone, the fit compliments my petite frame and I always bag a load of comments when I throw this on. It’s a great one to style from office day to impulsive cocktail night, if that’s the kinda’ life you lead that is – *inserts wink emoji*
