Change of a Dress

7 months ago by

If I could impart one piece of style wisdom about wearing a dress over pants, it would be that the key to success is confidence — confidence in the fact that yes it is cool and no it is not weird at all. In fact, if anything, it’s smart.

Not only will you look like an innovative master of layering (ok, maybe a slight exaggeration), but you’ve also given yourself options, and a new sense of preparedness. Because at any moment, you can remove the pants portion and just be wearing a dress

You start out with an outfit that adapts to many situations…At any moment, an unfortunate plop of salsa might plummet off the edge of a chip and land on your jeans, but don’t fret, you have the dress. Weather can also change on you, and your outfit can comply…

Change of a Dress

It’s the ultimate meeting of style + function – which really is the universal goal. I’m daring you to try this one out, just keep in mind that the fabrics of each item should be of similar drape, like in this scenario on our friend Alice, structured cotton shirting and straight fitted jeans. Good luck!
