While the image may not always align with modern fashion, the influence of the traditional fifties housewife still often pervades in retro clothing. The demure element is rarely seen so explicitly as in these Domestic Goddess Aprons from Dollydagger.
The kitsch styling of these aprons is the key to their appeal, featuring traditional fabric prints that are cutesy and classic. Made in a variety of gingham and candystripe prints, the structure too is the picturebook definition of the fifties wife and mother.
The apron is available now from Dollydagger for £23.99, in a variety of colours and patterns.
