How I Style a Pinafore Dress

I’m so excited to be sharing this outfit with you today as it truly is one of my all time favorite outfits to wear. I can’t pinpoint the exact reason why I love it so much. Maybe it’s the whimsy that comes with wearing a pinafore dress as an adult, or the fact that I still feel extremely feminine in it. Regardless, today I’m sharing my take on how I style a pinafore dress.

It’s all about the layers

Given the ultra mini style of this dress, I always pair it with a pair of tights or stockings, preferably a knitted pair like I’ve worn here so I feel fully covered, while still adding that extra level of warmth – a no brainer during the colder seasons.

Since the dress is quite slim cut, I always layer this black turtleneck from Uniqlo under it. I find this too works perfectly as a layering piece as it is thin so it doesn’t bulk up the outfit, but still provides me with enough warmth.

Girly and playful

Ever since I purchased this pinafore dress from Topshop a few seasons back, I have been completely in love with it. It’s one of those outfits which I would gladly wear everyday, whether it be to work, school, or to hang out with friends. This outfit ticks all the boxes for me. I think this look is super girly and playful, while still being age appropriate for someone in their mid-twenties.

The pinafore dress trend has been around for a few years now and I hope it sticks around for the foreseeable future! It’s shocking to even me that I have been able to hold off from picking up this pinafore dress in every other color they carry it in, but you never know what the future holds… 😉
