September 25th, 2015 by Samantha Weaver Why We’re Wearing Dresses Over Pants This Fall

This week in fashion, a once not-so-loved trend came back to life—only this time, we can’t help but love it. Everyone from bloggers at LFW to celebrities at the Emmys picked up on wearing dresses over pants, and boy, are we glad they did. As far as we’re concerned, dresses over pants are rising to the top of our “must try” list for fall.

Channel Nicole’s matching set by pairing our Striped Shirt Dress ($32.50) with your favorite gingham trousers. Tip: Belting your dress is a great way to create a silhouette on shift or smock dresses.

Kiernan Shipka’s Dior ensemble rocked the red carpet at last week’s Emmy Awards. Dior’s youthful take on the dress over pants look is fun both in its choice of color and length. To recreate Kiernan’s look, we chose a shorter herringbone dress and paired it with leather-paneled trousers.

The look I want to try most is a dress over flared denim. Here, I’ve paired our Floral Bell-Sleeved Mini Dress ($32.50) with my favorite pair of bell bottoms for an instant ’70s vibe.

The dress over pants movement looks especially good in monochromatic tones. White on white has been a big player in this trend (made famous by Kendall Jenner in The Row), so here I chose light-washed denim pieces in oversized cuts to create a casual weekend look.

Do you think you’ll try this trend this fall?
