How to style: A Pinafore dress

Hello everyone, I hope you are all well. It's really starting to warm up here in Dubai so my wardrobe is beginning to change and my cooler 'winter' clothes are being stored away. One item of clothing that always seems to stay in my wardrobe no matter what season is a dress. Dresses are great pieces because they can be layered up in winter, dressed up or down for different occasions and are really just very versatile. The style of dress i've been loving in particular this winter has been a pinafore dress which I got from new look, the reason I like this dress is because you can wear all sorts of other clothing with it for different occasions and it still looks some what classy, so i decided to show you today what I personally have loved pairing with it.

The first look I went for was a very casual, comfortable one which i've worn when walking along the beach or simply popping into the mall to do some shopping. The colour palette I have gone for is very monocrome with a slight pop of colour in the shoes. My favourite t-shirts at the moment are plain whit rolled sleeved ones which I have paired the pinafore dress with here. Its a very simple look and to give it a bit of colour I paired my rose gold glitter plimsolls and rose gold Michael Kors watch which just adds a little something extra to the outfit and made it seem more put together.

Plain white Tshirt: H&M Plain white jersey top
Black pinafore dress: New look pinafore dress (not the exact one, but very cute)
Shoes: New look rose gold glitter plimsolls
Watch: Michael Kors Blair Rose Gold-Tone Stainless Steel Chronograph Watch

This second look I went for was a smarter look which I have worn out for lunch with my family, I paired the pinafore dress with a button up shirt and some wedges to keep it more classy but still extremely comfortable in the Dubai heat. The colour palette is still fairly monochrome but this time the pop of colour is in the shirt where there is a bit of light blue. I really liked this outfit because the shirt was thin, perfect fort the warm weather and the wedges were so comfy meaning i could walk around all day without my feet hurting.

Shirt: New look white shirt (not the exact one i, but this would go perfect)
Pinafore dress: New look pinafore dress (not the exact one, but very cute)
Black wedges:Steve Madden wedges(similar)

These are the ways I love to style my black pinafore dress but obviously there are so many other ways it can be worn and so many options to pair with it. If you would like me to do another 'How to style' blogpost then please let me know.

Lots of Love
