The return of pinafore in 2016 was a brilliant alternative to dungarees whether you go for midi or shorter versions, in cotton or denim, it is a good throw-on-and-go piece, and also great for layering pieces under. Just pair with a shirt like I have for a preppy look, or even work an earthy colour palette for work or a chilled day in any season.
I’ve been admiring the denim pinafore from afar for a while, but everyone I tried was either too tight or too short. So when I was visiting Elanred store a few weeks ago, I wasn’t looking for this but clearly this denim pinafore by @AmarelisAtelier was meant to be mine. Not only because of the price, a bargain at N7,500 on their pop-up event day, but because the shade of blue really does work with so many options, has pockets and a cinched waist which are two things I love in a dress but struggle to find.
This denim pinafore dress looks great with just sneakers, flat sandals or heels alone. But with the weather now taking a massive turn, I opted for a pair of socks to add a fun feel to a cool, smart, comfortable day look.
If you already have a pair, do you know you can also wear your pinafore as a skirt? Try folding in the upper part and tuck in with your short the next time you are heading out. I just might…
