Daring to wear a dress, even a skirt, over your pants and look stylish, we hadn’t seen that since the 2000s and the heyday of Spice Girls. Driven by the success of printed / flowery / fluid dresses this summer, the trend of dress-over-pants overlay is born of the imagination of fashionistas who could not decide between wearing their jeans and their bucolic dress. But this perilous association, attempted in the streets of all the capitals of fashion, is obviously successful only if it meets certain rules.
How To Dare It?
Note here that we can qualify this trend as “maximal”. The fans of a look made up of the minimal union will not find themselves in this association which requires many details: colors, asymmetry, ruffles, volumes … The more there is, the more likely it is successful. If you really want to try this out, first of all, the dress should be fluid, wide enough and split / buttoned to be comfortable to move in once pants slipped under. In return, the pants must be sober and well cut to bring lightness to the silhouette.
If you choose jeans, they should be slim or straight, of a uniform color and ankle length to play on the volumes. the jeans will bring a casual contrast to this summer dress. On the feet, pumps or heeled boots are used to lift the silhouette. If you prefer to wear wide velvet pants to warm up your outfit, choose a contastant shade. Finally, we allow ourselves to play the card of the great diversion by associating with a dress over pants look, sneakers.
