What We Wore: Dress Over Pants

Let's face it, those of us who have been through the dreaded early 2000's are extremely nervous about the fashion era being in the horizon. The 2000's is the new 80's where so so many fashion faux pas were committed, over and over again - think re-runs of "The Simple Life". Yikes! All types of wrong.

Given that we cannot avoid the inevitable at least there is one trend from that era that we can be thankful for - getting to wear dresses over pants.

I LOVE layering so this trend speaks to me. I remember dabbling in it after Gwenyth Paltrow (now I am sounding old) started the trend after teaming up a handkerchief dress over her pants to cover a fashion faux pas and it took off.

If done right you can create a layered look that's interesting by mixing up different textures and instantly update your look by using existing pieces from your wardrobe. It's also a great way to update your fave LBD!

Stylist tip: When attempting this look make sure you get the balance right for your shape and height. Opt for pants which fit you perfectly, especially around your waist to avoid any unwanted bunching and definitely opt for a skinny leg or flared pant.

Shop the look...
