how to wear a dress over pants
I’m sharing an easy peasy lemon squeezy way to increase your outfit options. It’s perfect for our trans seasonal Australian weather too.
Pop on a dress over pants. Yep, it’s as easy as that. It’s also bang on trend.
It’s the perfect way to wear a dress that is a little bit short too. Click here for more style tips on that
Lots of favourite summer skirts and dresses can be winterised by popping a pair of pants underneath. Check out a few outfits where I’ve done exactly that.
dress over pants | swing dress
I’m wearing Ruby & Lilli Karen black swing dress over my Shop Kimba Likes Rupert Printed Pants, teamed with gifted Planet Shoes Echo ankle boots and a Sussan cropped jacket from the wardrobe archives.
I also have the Karen dress in stripes (click here to check it out).
This style is fabulous in summer, but the swing style and hi lo hem lend itself perfectly to a dress over pants style.
dress over pants | print clash & skinnies
I love this summer dress, winterised with skinny jeans and a Breton tee, so much I wrote a whole post about it!
dress over pants | tough pretty
A pair of distressed skinny jeans takes a pretty lace frock from evening to day.
For cooler weather, add a leather biker jacket and ankle boots.
dress over pants | keeping it tonal
It’s the Rupert pants again; this time with the Mim Shirtdress from Shop Kimba Likes.
I’m wearing the Rupert pants in a size down so I could wear them leggings style. They’re so much better than leggings though. The fitted waistband with side zip means they stay in place, and the fabric with proper hems makes them look smarter than lycra leggings.
Loving my gifted Planet Shoes Pineberry silver boots too. So glam!
dress over pants | layer player
My Country Road shirt dress is super cute by itself, but I love it layered. I’ve added Little Party Dress Riptide leggings, Motto necktie and H&M printed car coat.
dress over pants | holiday style
The dress over pants style is a holiday style essential! I always make sure I pack pieces that can be layered under and over, like this super cute PQ Collection frock paired with black skinnies. Check out my New Zealand holiday style here.
