A dress is always our go-to piece for that quick outfit change. They come in various styles from LBDs to shirt dresses for every occasion and personality. But have you ever paired it with a pair of pants?
The dress-over-pants trend is just one of the ’90 staples that’s coming back. The Cut noted that it was “encouraged” because “sometimes it’s too cold for just a dress.” This was evident with the street style at London Fashion Week wherein women utilized the combo for winter dressing. Sometimes even in our office!
Likewise, this trend was spotted on the runways of Gucci, Tibi, Stella McCartney, and Erdem. Dresses were paired with trousers of the same color and pattern, or flared pants to add dimension to the look. Meanwhile, celebrities and influencers put their own spin on it. Check them out so you too can try it out.
