THE PLEATED PINAFORE
This timeless pinafore dress, featuring permanent pleats, will ensure your schoolgirl looks super smart for the new term, says kidswear editor Maggie Davis
The simple pinafore is one of the most universally loved – and worn – items of school uniform. Fusing practicality with neat styling, this design features a pretty butterfly zipper and stylish box pleats, and is extremely easy to care for – there’s no need to iron it, thanks to clever crease-resistant technology. What’s more, any splashes and spills that might occur during the school day are kept at bay by our innovative Stormwear fabric. Available in no fewer than five classic colours, including navy and bottle green, this traditional school dress can be dressed up or down to suit school rules: team with a crisp white shirt and tie for a formal look, or with a long-sleeved T-shirt for a more casual aesthetic.
