Seeing a woman wear an apron in the 50s, 60s, 70s and even 80s wasn’t something that uncommon. Whether you saw the “stay-at-home” mother on television, were one yourself or personally knew one, the role was somewhat of a standard back in the day.
Well, no longer are aprons for the “humble housewife” that stays home cooking, cleaning and sewing. Aprons are seen, used and necessary in so many different situations in today’s world from everyday work, cleaning, cooking, arts and crafts and simply just because they're fun.
For instance, those working in hectic environments with a tendency to get messy, an apron is perfect to wear so that it can be an extra layer or “shield” in protecting your clothing. Or, for those that work in the food and beverage industry, an apron is not only necessary, but practical and a lot of times apart of the employee uniform.
You see, as the times have changed and we as humans have developed with the world around us, so have the stereotypical need for certain things, such as aprons.
The durability, comfort, different styles, fabrics, colors and prints are all traits that make aprons more accessible, fun as well as professional. So, before you think about the “standard” use for an apron, think again because time have changed and maybe so can you!
