Our guide to fashionable aprons

Roll Out: “The Original” apron, by Bluntroll, is made especially for chefs and also doubles as a knife roll. (Knives are not meant to be put in this way, but Jamie likes to live dangerously.) $140. thebluntroll.com Credit: Karen Roze

Lately I’ve been obsessed with aprons. As a wardrobe stylist, I like being able to keep my clothes clean and have pockets for my tools. Combine an apron with underlayering and you have the ideal fashion/function relationship. Here’s a variety of aprons (locally made, for the most part) that will get you through a messy day in style.

Check out the image slideshow above for all the looks and their descriptions.

If you'd like to get your apron dirty with some stories and photos about meat, take a look at our Life section.
