My attempt at styling a dress over pants. Or jeans, actually, because I don’t have any cropped ankle length pants, that are still moderately fitted. Both my Hope trousers and Black Crane pants are much too wide/slouchy to pull this look off. (I think only totokaelo models can pull off the oversized-with-oversized look).
I have decided that I will probably relegate dresses over pants to a look I appreciate more on other women, and not one that I will do very often. It’s tough to get the proportions right given my stature, and thicker legs. On me, this dress is just a bit too long to wear with jeans/pants, or even leggings. I do well with tunic length tops with jeans/leggings though – that is a look I will wear forever.
I might reserve dresses with pants/jeans for a traveling outfit idea though, as another way to get an additional wear out of either the jeans or the dress. And yes, it’s in the 90’s now here in Texas, so the fewer layers, the better, or linen. All linen.
