Like most kitchen textiles, the apron is both a practical necessity and a fun way to implement color and character into your kitchen. There are two sides to an ideal apron selection: Finding something that is cute (and you won't mind wearing in front of guests), and something that is easy to clean (since it's bound to get pretty messy). While a basic white apron is the choice of professional cooks everywhere, it can get dirty pretty quick. So just be sure to keep this in mind if you're a messy cook!
What style of aprons are there? Think about how much you'll actually be using your apron, everyday while cooking for a family of 6? Or will it mainly be hanging on a nearby hook as a pretty accent? It's important to consider durability. Do you love to deep fry? You'll want a heavyweight apron made of study cotton twill material than a flimsy lacy get up to protect you from hot oil jumping out of the pan. Aprons with pockets are also incredibly helpful to store a dishtowel or a recipe while you're at the stove or washing leftover dishes from your latest pasta feed.
