Let’s talk about one of the latest trends: dresses over jeans. This trend can be a little difficult to pull off, but if it’s done well I firmly believe that it. is. killer. The key is putting the right dress with the right pants. I realize this sounds pretty intuitive, but this is one of those trends that is all about fit.
This trend brings brings me back to middle school. I remember it being popular back when I was in about 6th grade. I had just started getting into fashion, so I decided I was going to rock a dress over jeans to school. I wore an A-line, knee length t-shirt dress with flared jeans and sneakers… It was as awful as it sounds.
The dress middle school me picked out was way too long for my small frame. If you are on the shorter side like I am, stick with a mini dress! Additionally, the A-line silhouette with the flared jeans was too much of a good thing. If the dress had been a tad shorter, and if I had traded in the flared jeans for a pair of skinnies, my outfit wouldn’t have been quite so cringe worthy.
Thankfully my sense of style has come a long way since the 6th grade… However, I have 0 regrets. I think the key to pulling off any trend is simply giving it a try! Fashion is all about unexpected pairings and taking risks. How would you style this trend? Get my outfit details down below.
I love your boots!!
I think that this is such adorable look if done right and boy do you do it right girl! The softness of the top it’s just the perfect blend with the edge of the ripped jeans. And the pop of the detailed boots brings it all together! Have a super sweet weekend beautiful!
Thanks so much Andrea! I hope you’re having a nice weekend!
This pairing works really well! I love the girly dress paired with edgier denim/boots.
