Here I want to discuss a key fashion look that I believe is well worth attempting. Dresses worn over jeans are a look to explore.
To be honest, I don’t believe this is a trend in the first place. I believe that this is a fashion look that will last.
It’s similar to how we typically just throw our blazers and jackets over our shoulders without putting our arms in them.
Dresses and skirts worn over jeans are similar to this. It’s a trendy look that I think will stick around for a while.
Why Is This a Fantastic Look?
This article is meant to introduce you to this look and possibly make you feel less hesitant to try it yourself.
Let’s have a look at what I think looks great and how I believe most of us can wear it.
One of the reasons I like this outfit is that it makes it easy to convert your wardrobe from winter to summer and vice versa.
If you put a pair of jeans underneath your lovely summer dresses, you may wear them longer into the cooler months.
It not only serves a practical purpose, but it also looks great.
Coming out of the colder months, the same is true. If you’ve been wearing your jeans all the time but are itching to get into some summery floaty dresses or a stunning slip dress you already own, you can layer it over your jeans to move into the warmer months.
So, in terms of practicality, I believe this is a fantastic look.
But it’s also visually appealing to me, as it adds another layer and element of intrigue to an otherwise simple clothing.
Dresses have always been a favorite of mine because they may be worn as a complete outfit.
If you want to add a little more interest or give them a fashion edge, I think pairing dresses with a pair of denim jeans, whether distressed denim jeans or just slender black jeans, gives it a whole new look.
The dresses are nice on their own and look terrific, but when they’re paired with a pair of jeans, they take on a whole other level of fashion.
A pair of jeans worn under a dress or a skirt will truly keep your legs warm from a practical standpoint.
But, more importantly, it simply adds a great fashion edge and an additional layer to an otherwise simple look.
How To Start Wearing Dress Over Jeans
If you’re new to this look and want to dip your toe into the trend, I recommend starting with a relatively skinny jean.
You won’t feel entirely engulfed and overwhelmed by too much fabric this way.
That isn’t to say I don’t like the look of wide-leg pants and boyfriend jeans paired with dresses for a truly unique style.
But, if you’re just getting started and aren’t sure if this look is suited for you, I’d recommend going with skinny jeans.
This look provides a slightly grungy street style edge to a very feminine lovely dress, which I really like. It’s the contrast of high and low fashion.
Wearing a stunning dress to an event, a garden party, or something more dressed up and pairing it with jeans gives it a little more of an urban street style fashion vibe.
Another aspect of this look that I adore is that it doesn’t matter what length your dress or skirt is.
I’ve already discussed the importance of having your skirt length fall at the narrowest section of your legs. As a result, mid-calf is rarely flattering.
If you already own mid-calf skirts and dresses, this is a great way to get more wear out of them without feeling self-conscious about them.
It doesn’t matter where the hemline stops as long as you combine them with a pair of jeans.
The second amazing thing about this style is that it can be worn with practically any shoe. And it will work.
As a result, playing with your footwear may be a lot of fun. This look can be worn with everything from a converse or a sneaker to a high strappy sandal, a flat sandal, or even a lovely little ankle boot.
This design also gives you a lot of options when it comes to footwear and shoes.
Shirt dresses work well with this outfit. One of the reasons I think they work so well is that the shirt dress can be worn undone.
You can see parts of the jeans, which helps to break up the fabric and ensure that you don’t get too weighed down.
Another strategy is to choose a dress with an asymmetric hemline if you’re new to this look and are still getting used to it.
This will just break up the image and make you feel like you aren’t completely engulfed in fabric.
If you haven’t tried this look yet, go through your closet and have a little fun with it to see what you can come up with.
You might be pleasantly surprised, I believe. At least, that’s what I’m hoping for.
