Cooking in Style: DIY Aprons 

The kitchen is considered almost like a sacred space for those of us who love to be creative with our meals. If you spend a lot of time in the kitchen, you surely want to look the part! Growing up, you may have admired your grandmother’s signature apron but now is the time to create your own! Cook in style and get inspired by our selection of DIY aprons! 

1. Old Fashioned Apron 


First and foremost, aprons have a job of protecting your clothes from getting messy as you’re cooking, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have an exceptionally good style as well! This old-fashioned apron by Fleece Fun can become a faithful companion in the kitchen and who knows, maybe one day you can pass it down to your own kids!

2. Striped Apron 


A lot of aprons have a very colorful style because they tend to look a bit retro, but if you would rather opt for an apron that doesn’t stand out too much and has a very minimalist look, we think this gray striped apron by Style Me Pretty is a great option!

3. Unisex Apron 


Aprons aren’t only meant for women, of course! But we do realize that a lot of apron designs are only made with women in mind. Here’s a fantastic apron created by Purl Soho that is totally unisex! Make one apron and share it with your significant other any time!

Handkerchiefs aren’t as popular anymore as they used to be, but many of us still have a big box of them at home that’s been passed down to us by older family members.
