My Style: Dresses Over Denim
Wearing a dress over pants is one of those things I've heard clients tell me they could never pull off, but they also tell me how chic they think it looks.
It is chic! And practical! Like keeping your legs warmer than tights (and without the risk of runs), giving dresses that cool tomboy contrast, and extending your wardrobe well into another season by essentially turning a dress into a top or jacket.
Tailored silhouettes are the easiest for a beginner that thinks they 'could never pull it off' — a shift dress over tailored trousers, or an A-line skirt over skinnies. The goal is not to look bulky. My kimono-turned-dress is loose and flowy, but belting at the waist gives it a definite shape.
