Our brand new Paige skirt was a firm favourite this past season, so we decided to make her into a new layering piece for winter in the form of our new Paige Pinafore. We have shortened the length ever so slightly for this winter version, so she will be a lovely length (showing just enough leg) with stockings and layers. You can never own too many pinafores and each of ours serves a different look and use in your wardrobe. Paige is our most vintage inspired and feminine look which we run in strong plain colours for ultimate mix and match appeal.
FEATURES: The Paige pinafore is a brand new shape based off our Paige skirt from summer. If you love everything about our Paige skirt, you are guaranteed to love this pinafore as she is exactly the same cut, slightly shorter (approximately 7cm) from our original skirt length, and with an added bib front that has adjustable straps. The strap length can be adjusted using the multiple button holes and hidden buttons inside the waistband. You can also choose to cross the straps, or wear them straight. Paige has a lovely square bib front, with a small bust dart which makes it fit on the bust wonderfully. She has no other detailing on the bib, which means it won’t distract from the wonderful cut of the pinafore and top stitching which we just love. We imagine this will be a firm favourite in plain seasonal colours, as well as lending itself to dressier combos in dark tones. We have sourced some beautiful winter weights to launch this style and we cannot wait for you to feel how nice she is to wear. The great news is, due to the back zip on this style, you can button the pinafore straps in the configuration you like before putting her on and slip the whole thing over your head and zip up to finish. She's as easy as putting on your favourite dress!
HOW TO WEAR: We love this new shape worn as-is with a light layer underneath, like a with a scoop neck top (think Bree or autumn top) or a higher neck shape such as a scarlet skivvy or Rizzo top. We love a stripe or a printed layer under our plain coloured Paige Pini, or even try a new Emily top or Evelyn top underneath this shape for a blousy feminine option. The structured cut of this pinafore will mean so many people adore her layered with shirts underneath for work. Try a pinafore with one of our famous Clementine cardigans for winter warmth and layer her up with scarves, brooches or even a belt to accessorise. The length hits at the knee or just below on most heights (similar length to our original Patsy skirt) and is slightly shorter on tall frames. This length and style work amazingly with stockings and boots in winter and we will be layering ours with our leggings which are soft enough to wear under this piece for it to work well. We love this pinafore worn in summer too with a little t-shirt underneath, as the fabrics we have used are lightweight enough to work all year round.
