A Jumper Dress for Summer
A jumper dress or pinafore dress, informally pinafina or tellally pinafore, or informally tellally tellurfa or pinny, is a short, sleeveless, front-buttoned dress designed to be worn under a jacket, shirt, blazer or other shirt. There are several variations of this style. The kind of collar and pleating on the front can vary from casual to formal and may have a buttonhole closure, a zipper or no closure at all. The length of the neckline is usually a bit shorter than when wearing a regular dress, but it can extend down to a knee or even a calf.
A sleeveless jumper dress with a low cut neckline is called a spaghetti strap jumper dress and features an open neck with a simple neckline. It can be a short length that falls below the hip and is often accented with ruffles. Another variation of the spaghetti strap is the short and full version that reaches the ankles. The hemline of the jumper dress is sometimes a bit higher than a regular dress but there are many variations of how long the hemline can go. Some styles feature pleats. There are many styles of jumper dresses with the sleeve cut straight across the arm while others have a V-neck in front, a shawl wrapped around the upper arm or a short cuff with a tie and a V-neck collar.
If you are looking for a jumper dress to wear with a skirt, you should try one with a straight hem and a V-neck. A long, full, sleeveless jumper dress with a V-neck is also considered to be a spaghetti strap jumper dress because the V is the main part of the dress. This style often has a front zipper. The most popular styles of jumper dress for summer include those that are either a short, mid-calf length with a short, high cut neckline or ones that have a shawl wrapped around the upper arm. You may also want to consider buying a jumper dress in a color that matches your skin tone and hair color. A jumper dress with a bright red top paired with a black skirt is always an easy, comfortable look and has been the trend for the last few seasons. In addition, a jumper dress with a short skirt in a summer color such as red or orange is always comfortable because these colors tend to cool down a little.
