Clogs. Vintage aprons. A superhero cape. Whatever it is, putting on a favorite outfit and looking awesome (and feeling comfortable) is a huge part of cooking. Whether it’s a treasured square plucked from your personal bandanna collection or a baggy sweatshirt pilfered from your boyfriend’s closet, whatever you’re wearing can heighten (if not make more snazzy) the entire kitchen experience.
We asked around America’s Test Kitchen for their favorite things to wear while cooking. Here are a sampling:
Yoga pants! Gotta be comfortable when you’re cooking.
My boyfriend’s mother got me this ridiculous, girly, frilly, pink apron as a graduation present. I don’t even like to think about how much it must have cost. I would never have bought it for myself, but it’s covered in useful pockets and after two years of warming up to it I LOVE wearing that ruffle-covered thing while I cook. I also refuse to cook wearing shoes. Ever.
My favorite apron… from Questionable Content.
Chaps and a cowboy hat.
