What’s Next: The Apron Skirt

When we think layering, fall and winter fashion is usually the first thing to pop into our minds. But the latest trend for summer 2015 is opening up an endless array of options for those who love wearing multiple pieces – the apron skirt. A new twist on a kitchen staple, the apron skirting rage gives new purpose to this versatile workhorse. Wear over minis or maxis, accordion pleats or pencil skirts, and even your favorite pair of pants for an instant touch of chic, flirty fun.

Skirting the Issue

Though it draws inspiration from the protective gear worn in kitchens and restaurants around the world, the apron skirt reads anything but working girl. Pair prints and contrasting hues to add interest to your ensemble or stick to monochromatic combinations for a classic look.
