Trend Watch: Jump Right Pin
The jumper dress or pinafore dress has been making a comeback as of late. Previously resurrected in the 90s, this 70s-esque style has roots in schoolgirl style but has been continually updated to appeal to the working woman (70s), trendsetting high schooler (90s), and modern edgy fashionista (now) alike. I’ve noticed the style cropping up more than usual lately, so I thought I’d highlight a few ways you can wear a jumper dress or skirt.
From L to R, Top to Bottom
Overall Winner Jumper in Cardinal Plaid – $69.99 @ ModCloth: The plaid on this jumper skirt makes it feel very fall and more than a little schoolgirl, but the the flattering high waist is a gal’s best friend. You can also nab it in basic black.
Laura Denim Pinafore Dress – $70 @ Boohoo: Overalls have made a comeback this past year – and so have their skirt-y sibling, the jumper dress. Denim gives this otherwise girly style a little bit of tomboy edge. Wear it with canvas kicks and a retro tee.
ASOS Pinafore Dress – $25 @ ASOS: Dip your toe in the trend without blowing the bank. This ASOS pick comes in a few different hues from neutral grey to super soft, like this angelic pink option.
Topshop Corduroy Velvet Pinafore Dress – $76: It’s a double dose of retro: overall straps and corduroy were last uber trendy circa 1994. But something about the slim cut and hardware on this dress makes it feel oh so now. It looks great with a simple turtleneck underneath!
Boohoo Pleated Pinafore Dress – $39 @ ASOS: The mauve colour and pleated skirt of this option really make it stand out. The panel up top is cut with a slim design, ultimately making your upper half look trimmer too.
Modern Jumper Dress – $79 @ Simons: I love jumpers that allow you to really show off what you’re wearing underneath. This navy blue style has a plunging front and cool back detail that let you show it all off.
