Pinafore Dresses: The All-Season Pleasers

Pretty Outfit Details Fashion BlogRecognise this denim pinafore dress?  I wore it more times than I can even remember over last summer!  Though I hate to admit it, I sort of fell out of love with this dress over winter.  I know, terrible.  However, that all changed when I remembered why I bought it in the first place - pinafore dresses leave the door open for tons of different looks.  By changing the type of top worn underneath, you can easily change the overall look and create something far more special!  For example, I'd only been wearing tight-fitting bodies underneath the dress last summer.  Whereas now, I'm all about those statement blouses, and in this case, a flared-sleeve, high-neck pink gingham one...

I last shared this watch by Timex on A Glass Of Ice in Date Night x Garden Party, and I've been wearing (and loving!) it ever since.  There's a lot to be said for a classic and beautiful watch, that adds to your outfit without stealing all the attention.  On my feet?  Boots, sadly.  Because as I'm sure all of the UK readers here are well aware, the weather is all over the place right now - up, down, up, down...

  2. I actually need to buy a pinafore dress, as you said, they are very versatile and I'm pretty sure I already have a lot of tops which would go well with it! Lovely post :)

  4. They probably wouldn’t suit me but the pinafore dress suits you so well! It has that kind of girlish charm which I think goes with your look so easily. I do love that high neck blouse though! Those sleeves are just... wow! I’m trying to add a lot more statement sleeves to my wardrobe now & this blouse is so pretty!

  5. I don't have any pinafore dresses on my closet but if I have to give a veredict... Love them! :) I'm all for pieces that are versatile enough to be worn in different ways, and this is one of those pieces as you pointed it above. By wearing it with this statement blouse you surely gave it a twist, a very modern and stylish twist, I'd say! ;)

  27. The pinafore was definitely a great find, and your gingham blouse makes it sing. Sorry to hear that it's been cooler there, but you manage to look very fresh and springy (and stylish!) in spite of it.

  31. Pretty in pink. I like the combination of denim and this feminine color.

  32. It's always handy to have such a classic piece in your wardrobe, because you never know when you'll want to wear it again! It's very versatile as well, which is great because it can look pretty with a lot of different tops under it. This gingham blouse is super pretty and trendy, so that's a good way to accessorize the dress :)

  51. This reminds me of my love for my denim dungarees, over Summer I adored the amount of looks I could create with it but come winter, it was left lost and forgotten in my wardrobe! I don't actually have a pinafore dress but similar to the dungarees, you can just tell that you're going to get lots of use of it!
