Winter Must-Haves: Pinafore Dress
Hey Loves!! I’m finally back at it! I’m finally recovered from working long hours in retail from November until last week. I’m so glad to be bringing you a fashion series on the must-haves of this Winter. One of the things I love about Fashion is how Fashion repeats itself. Pinafore dresses are a thing now! Some people know them as jumper dresses, but the name for them is Pinafore. I’m not really a dress wearer, but when it comes to something this cute I had to have it!
Pinafore dresses give me 90s vibes and school girl feels. The hunter green and navy blue color combo are really trendy this year. That made me love this dress even more. When I saw it, I knew exactly what I was going to pair with it and all! I got my hands on this Pinafore dress (similar) at the Forever21 in Nashville. When I saw it, I knew it was sold out online, so I knew I had to get it and it was love at first sight then.
Of course, I had to pair the dress with a mock turtleneck (similar) that’s also trending this winter. I was out shopping at Walmart and spotted a black and white mock- neck turtleneck and got both. The mock neck turtlenecks were $7 each. To complete this outfit, I paired it with my black beret, because I’m such a hat girl. I also added some microfiber black tights from Torrid. I finished this look with black platform booties I purchased from JustFab for only $15 during their boot sale in November.
Style Details: In the plaid Pinafore dress (similar) I am wearing a 2x. I could have done a 1x cause it’s big in my bust area and I would rather it hug my hips a little more. Also, the zipper on the dress does unzip all the way in case you want to wear it open a bit in the bust area. In the mock neck turtleneck (similar), I am wearing a 2x. The turtleneck does have some stretch, but I’m comfortable in the 2x. The microfiber tights are the most comfortable tights I’ve ever had. They are in a 1/2 Torrid size (14/16) and an (18/20). My platform booties are a size 10 which are true to size also. The heel is pretty high, but they’re so comfortable, trust me.
