Mum, where's my uniform?

One of the top trends this season is that primary school signature look. Lets go back in time to bring these past outfits back to life, the pinafore, the dungaree, the frilly socks, yes they're all making a modern comeback. Ok, so some of you would probably cringe at the thought of wearing these in public and hate to remind yourself of those embarrassing moments back at school, but give it a try this trend is sweeping the fashion market. Come to mention it this style doesn't just take us back to primary school it transports us back to the 60's too, with fashion icons like Mary Quant who modelled this look. You could be the next Mary Quant, wouldn't that be lovely?

Oh colours, colours which colour to pick? Personally I think the colours black and denim are the best as you can find anything to go with it whether it's a patterned blouse or a plain white T. The black gives a professional, monochrome look yet the denim gives a more fun colourful one. Pairing these up with a polar shirt and brogues gives it the perfect Vintage edge, combine this with a chunky, bulky necklace to accompany the outfit and it really gives an expensive modern touch. Huge thick jewellery is in, get them topping off your outfits! Pinafores and dungarees are available is nearly every high street shop at the moment so no need to panic and go for the unreliable internet shopping trick (will it or won't it fit me). If you're a little empty in the piggy bank right now it's fine, maybe you should have a scavenge through your Nanna's wardrobe or find a piece of your old primary school uniform and give it a BIG stretch. Humm, maybe just go for the first option.

I told you from my previous posts old fashioned 60's styles were coming back, stick with me kids I know my stuff. Who knew looking like a school girl could be so fashionable?

  1. I love the way you have styled the pinafore, I would feel a bit like a primary school child if I did, but it looks really good on you. It works really well with the necklace and I love your hair.

  2. Thank you so much! I think having a fringe suits the pinafore more as well, it adds to the vintage side of the outfit X
