Knitted_pinafore_dress_40There has been a spate of grey pinafore dresses appearing in Hollywood all of a sudden, sported by starlets Isla Fisher (Mrs Sacha Baron Cohen herself!), Molly Sims and Jessica Biel.  A kick-back to the school uniform of yesteryear, it looks best when worn over a blouse and paired with opaque tights and mid-length or ankle boots, for a nod to the mod.

While some of Topshop's Autumn / Winter offerings have been.. well, less than lovely; they're right on-trend with this sweet grey knitted pinafore, which will set you back a bearable £40.  Pair it with these bargain boots, £30 from New Look, and you'll be the talk of the town!
