Ok, so I have been trying to style this vintage dress for months now! If you remember my Hong Kong Vintage post a few months back, you know I picked up quite a few unique pieces. This dress happened to be one of them, and although I was extremely excited about it, I had been holding off on wearing it because I just wasn’t 100% committed on how to style it.
I was drawn to this dress because of the fabulous print more than anything… so it felt like something that deserved a little bit more than your typical shift dress styling. Well of course wearing a dress over pants isn’t new…. it was a big trend in the 90’s and was seen a bit on the F/W runways this fall and even on a few celebrities (Check out this Emma Watson look).
And to be honest, I hadn’t totally abandoned the dress over pants look anyway. I’ve definitely worn it here and there since the 90’s. I just feel like it’s a great way to change up a typical look and add a little bit of unexpected layering. (And I decided to add in a little print mixing as well!!)
Where Am I: Camden Street Uptown, Phat Burrito
How do you feel about dresses over pants? Do or don’t?
