fashion trends the jumper dress 1) what is the trend? A jumper is a pinafore dress, which means that it is a sleeveless, collarless dress intended to be worn over a blouse, shirt or sweater. A jumper is merely a specific style of dress. Jumpers are made to be worn over another top: that's what makes the style a jumper and not merely a sleeveless "shift" dress. 2) history of the trend This function friendly dress has been a subtle staple for the past century, with its roots potentially dating back to inspiration from the women's sideless surcoats of the 14 th century. The two share some striking similarities in that they're both meant to be worn over another garment, they feature the effect of having or actually having shoulder straps, and their skirts both traditionally fell in loose folds from the hips (although the skirts of jumpers have generally been much shorter over the years).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
