What: Aprons, yes, aprons, are becoming a hot new fashion trend, with American Apparel releasing a line of wearable aprons.

From TrendCentral: From cook-offs and farmers markets to The Food Network and foodie blogs, all things culinary are cool at the moment, with the latest entry being kitchen fashion: One of our trend reporters recently picked up on a new hipster movement of aprons being worn over dresses.

What We Say: We guess this shouldn’t come as a surprise seeing the massive popularity of foodie shows like Top Chef. However, this is one trend that we think you should consider passing on, if for no other reason than March is Women’s History Month and this might send out the wrong message. However, if you must, be on trend, then our advice is to head to your local Salvation Army/Goodwill and pick one up for less than $5 or go for an ultra cute retro apron like this one from Jessie Steele, that looks more like a dress, than an apron.

Would You Wear an Apron as Fashion?

  • I recently started making apron and came across old vintage curtain. They sure did make some cute aprons. I have a few left and Im keeping one for me . With the vintage flare there are many patterns and ways to create my own style. . It has been alot of fun shopping for fabric. I would love to hear what people are enjoying the most as far as style goes.

    I agree that aprons as a layer in one’s daily ensemble should be left to the younger gals.  When it comes to aprons I am a confirmed functionalist—plain white from the restaurant supply store with simple ties and a thermometer pocket.

    Many years ago, m mother used to make aprons— for presents, hostess gifts, grab bags,  –  many were very fancy – and in great demand. She was a wonderful seamstress.

    I only wish I had one.

    I wear aprons while baking, but I can’t imagine wearing one out of the house (unless I was asking a neighbor for an egg or something). I can see this being a cute re-imaging of a pinafore dress for the under-20 crowd. With leggings and ballet flats.
