Last year I wrote a blog post about how to style pinafore dresses different ways (It’s linked here). I wanted to do an *updated* look for this year! Sometimes I feel like a little girl wearing this dress, but I decided to challenge myself and give it a city chic vibe. If I could re-do some of the looks I would bring in more colour with the dress rather than the continuous black on black. With that said, I do like matching it with a turtleneck; blouse and a tee.
I paired my dress with a ruffle sleeve sweater. I love how the white brings out the details in the dress. The contrast of the two also gives it the classic black and white style.
I threw on a belt to accessorize it and give the dress some shape. Although I love the loose fitting style, because I am more petite, creating a waist make it look more put together and flattering. This would also be true for anyone with an hour glass or pear shaped body.  I completed the look by adding a pop of colour with my heels.
Although my dress is old from H&M they usually bring it back during winter months, so I will keep you updated! I have linked a similar one from Shein here.
This outfit has to be a favourite when styling my pinafore dress. For a more edgy vibe, I also like it with a bralette however I would add the belt again to give it more of a shape.
Whats your favourite way of dressing a pinafore dress?
