A kitchen is a place of serious work, so dressing accordingly can help you out bigtime. That’s why we put together this shop of aprons and kitchen towels, linens that’ve been long under-appreciated—until now. The rest of your wardrobe sure thanks these pieces every time they block a grease stain or shield you from a splash of runaway cabernet. They’re often equipped with handy pockets too, to keep your trustiest kitchen tools close at hand. We know some painters look cool in clothes covered with tasteful speckles of paint—but something tells us walking around dotted in marinara sauce just isn’t the same.
