The kitchen is hardly the place for frills and lace. Seriously, have you ever tried to get hollandaise out of delicate material? Skip the feminine "for show" aprons (or better yet, save them for a bit of role-playing after your homemade meal, if you know what we mean...) and tie on the Brittany Red Mini Combo Bib Apron ($64). It's made from sturdy linen and cotton, so it can take a beating, a couple of spills, and a blender mishap or two, and still come back for more abuse.
