There are some that have two ribbons running criss-cross across the back, halter neck tying styles, or simple sleeveless ones too. These are commonly available in cotton, multifarious colours, patterns and lengths.

Today aprons have come to be known as decorative garments too which allow for the addition of an array of stylish design elements, frills, pockets, buttons. Lengths also vary depending on personal choice, some cover just the thigh area, whereas some aprons run right down to the shin.
