Dresses over jeans is one of those good old styles that's veered its ever so practical head once again. I remember rocking dresses over jeans in the 90's and early 00's, and lately I've spotted some cool people/ street style posts in articles and on pintrest.
I think what killed the trend for me was when leggings came in to affect.. and feel free to shoot me a scornful look, but i have a complete aversion to leggings and dresses, leggings in general really (exception is exercise or lounge wear only), I just don't like them (sorry). I rocked the leggings under dresses thing and just look back with regrets, to be fair it was fairly ubiquitous here in the UK at the time. But i swore i would not do it again ( I hope my sister isn't reading, she still wears leggings with dresses). Jeans or trousers however does create a rather interesting silhouette. Its fun its flirty and yet totally practical too.
I'd been dying to wear this dress a bit more as i hadn't worn it since December (which annoys me, you know me, I like to get lots of wear out of everything in my wardrobe!), so inspired by the returning trend i layered the star print dress with my favourite topshop jeans and trusty biker jacket.
It felt great!
I felt pretty in a dress, like party pretty up top, and then practical and functional on the bottom, enabling me to clean and tidy and play on the floor with out feeling 'precious' in a dress.
This particular dress is so lovely with its wave drop hem, i found myself swishing through the day.
So i think its fair to say this is a trend i will definitely be wearing again!
What are your thoughts on layering Dresses over Jeans?
I would highly recommend giving it a go.
