When I’m in the kitchen, spills happen. I’m not especially clumsy, but I’m also not especially graceful. A bowl of rice goes flying over here, tomatoes splatter over my favorite shirt, the possibilities for spillage are endless. And that is why, after years of not being an apron person, I have accepted that I am one. Now, I’m just wondering why I didn’t become one sooner. There are so many great, stylish aprons to choose from that they are pretty much a new accessory. To help you find the perfect apron for you, we’ve rounded up some of our favorites.
FOR THE BEST APRON
Five Two Ultimate Apron
We love Food52’s apron so much. It’s pretty much designed to be the perfect apron. It has “built in pot holders on the bottom, so you’ll never need to run around looking for an oven mitt, it comes with a conversion chart in one pocket to help you calculate those difficult baking equations, and of course, the fabric protects you from splashes, spills, and stains, no problem.
FOR A RESTAURANT QUALITY APRON
I don’t really feel like this is an apron, but instead, a cooking accessory. It’s made out of Duck Canvas, has three pen pockets, and two pockets near your pants which is a must for me. But “what’s so cool about it most of all, is that it doesn’t totally suck to wear it. Because it distributes weight down your shoulders and on your back instead of simply pulling at your neck, you can actually wear it for extended periods of time.”
FOR A SMOCK
Gray Washed Cotton Smock
If you’re a fan of Bon Appetit videos this apron might look familiar. Even if you’re not, it’s super stylish and made of linen, making it lightweight. It also doesn’t have those annoying ties you have to loop around, which I think makes it extra amazing.
FOR A 100% COTTON APRON
Maison d’Hermine Apron
This spring themed apron is perfect for the kitchen. Made from 100% cotton, it works well for men and women, and is easy to wash. Just throw it in the machine with like colors and it’ll come out looking brand new.
FOR A CLASSIC APRON
Chefworks Three Pocket Apron
A classic white chef apron will make you feel that much more like a pro in the kitchen. It’s more tight fitting, which you might prefer to avoid looking like a rectangle, and has extra long finished ties, too.
FOR A HALF APRON
Lake Stripe Half Apron
When you don’t need the whole thing, a half apron does the job just as well. This beautiful apron comes with a lovely stripe across the front, and deep pockets for storing recipe cards, or kitchen tools. It ties around your waist via a cotton twill strap.
FOR AN EXTRA LONG APRON
Soft Chef Apron
These extra long aprons come in a set of two, which is great if you’re often tag teaming it in the kitchen. Or it’s even better if you’re constantly ruining aprons.
