A pinafore, or pinafore dress, is basically a short-sleeved dress worn over a top or blouse, and sometimes even over a pair of shorts. It has no sleeves and usually goes up to the knees. A pinafore can be quite elegant but also very fun to wear and it is often very easy to combine various types of patterns with different colors and patterns. The most common pinafore style is the traditional pinafore but you will find other styles available such as the boho, which is an old fashioned style that is perfect for a romantic date in a garden, the chiffon or grosgrain pinafore, or even the crisscross, which is a very simple style that goes from knee-high to a floor-length.
If you want to wear a pinafore for a casual party or evening out then you will want to wear something more fitted and lighter than if you were to wear a long pinafore which would look flatteringly sexy. You could also consider wearing a matching pinafore dress with a halter neckline for a more glamorous look that will make you stand out at the party. You will find that pinafores come in a range of different colors and you should have no difficulty choosing the right one for your body type and occasion.
For example, if you are a tall woman then you will probably enjoy wearing a traditional pinafore with a large floral print top. If you are shorter and more petite then you may wish to choose a simple floral print on a pair of black or white pants and a strapless top with ruffles. The most popular style of pinafore is the chiffon pinafore because they look especially cute on young girls. If you are tall and thin, then the crisscross style would be ideal for you, while those who are short and curvy will find that the traditional pinafore looks good on them too. When you are choosing your pinafore then you should make sure that you choose one that you will enjoy wearing for many years to come.
