Shein is an online store known best for their affordable trendy fast fashion. I’ve ordered a range of things from Shein (pants to sweaters, homeware and makeup) but never a Shein dress- until now.

The dress arrived quickly, but unfortunately it was the wrong one. I ordered a black Frill Trim Ruffle Hem Tube Dress but was sent the Plaid Ruffle Trim Overall Dress. It’s a medium stretch high waisted short pinafore with ruffled straps, and a slim fit.
I don’t have anything like it so I kept it so see if it could be as versatile as the one I originally ordered.
🌟 Shein is budget friendly and offers an impressive assortment of dress styles with a wide range of sizes. That being said, while the clothes are nice and trendy chances are they won’t last as long as due to their material and structure. My goal was to find a piece that could transition through the seasons and inspire me to use items I have in different ways.
🌟 Pinafore dresses are great because they come in a variety of types and can work with any aesthetic (flared/box pleated/classic etc.) and body type. It’s a stiff competition but I’ve narrowed down the competition for you.
1. Asos COLLUSION pleated midi pinafore dress in black
COLLUSION pleated midi pinafore dress in black | ASOS
COLLUSION is a newer brand that’s focused on inclusivity, comfortable.
Depending on your height it can turn into a maxi, certain body shapes can get lost in
the amount of fabric and loose fit.
2. SelfIe Leslie SHILOH Tie-Back Pinafore Dress in Blush
Shop the Shiloh Tie-Back Pinafore Dress Blush | Selfie Leslie
Gorgeous ruffled mini that can be casual or dressed up.
3. Nasty Gal Corduroy Button Down Mini Pinafore Dress
Can be used during all seasons, comes in a variety of colors, front pockets.
None… but I have seen very similar from Forever 21, Target and Amazon for a lot less.
🌟 I would definitely recommend the Shein Plaid Ruffle Trim Overall Dress. It’s a fun, versatile piece that goes from day to night and you can easily add your own touch to achieve countless styles. Personally, this dress gave me a new appreciation for repurposing other pieces that weren’t being used.
🌟Shopping on Shein can be overwhelming so prior to diving in here are a few tips:

🛍Don’t be so quick to judge/rule something out. Take some time and think about how you can make it your own.
🛍Create a look board for yourself or gather some pics for inspo.
🌟Most days I’m in sweats and oversized tees so styling this dress in different ways was a much appreciated change of pace. Which style is your favorite? Are there any other styles you’d like to see with it?
