I’m all about wearing dresses over pants and have been for years. It’s very boho chic, comfortable and easy; key elements to the perfect outfit. Needless to say when I saw this ($12) dress at Macy’s, my immediate thought was how cute it’d look over a pair of jeans. The paisley-floral mixed print and lightweight material also helped in winning me over.
A friend told me that I pull off this style very well. She then went on to let me know that not everyone can wear it the right way. That got me thinking; are certain styles and trends really only for certain people? After much thought, I came to the conclusion that if worn with confidence and if it fits a persons style aesthetic, anyone can wear anything.
If you, like me, plan to wear this trend throughout the spring/summer here are 3 simple styling tips for making this trend work:
1. Preferably skinnies. When wearing the dresses over pants trend I tend to go for skinny jeans/pants. I like the sleekness of a tighter pant over a flowy dress. I also find wearing skinnies under dresses is more flattering.
2. Accessorize. It’s no secret that I love to accessorize. With this trend I like to add statement necklaces, big earrings, or even statement cuffs.
3. Make it personal. As with any outfit be sure it fits your personal style. Have fun with colors, prints, and lengths when deciding which dress to wear over your pants.
So tell me, what do you think about the dresses over pants trend? Are you a fan? Let me know!
