Style Equation: Dress + Pants
Add some street edge to a feminine dress!
IMAGE bloggers featured

Dressing up is always a perfect excuse to try something new, go overboard with different trends (within limits, of course), and to simply have fun with fashion! While it's easier to step out of your comfort zone when mixing two colors in a look together or matching a basic piece with a trendy clothing, layering pieces, on the other hand, can be a little more challenging because you have to understand how the style equation would work on your body first. Last year, we mentioned that wearing your dresses over pants is a big no-no. But we've grown to love this trend over the past few months. And we've learned that with the right pieces put together, this style equation is pretty cool and fashion-forward! So if you’re ready for a style combination that will never fail to put you on the style map, simply scroll down to learn how you can layer your dresses over a pair of pants!

Turn this fashion-forward trend into a classic OOTD choice by opting for a classic LWD and pairing it with yet another classic style staple, a pair of Audrey Hepburn-approved black cigarette pants. Throw on an edgy tuxedo jacket to seal a fashionable deal!

For a more relaxed take on this style equation, grab an oversized knit dress and layer it over a pair of distressed skinny jeans. Finish the look off with a pair of classic kicks and cool sunglasses for an effortless but fashionable look.

Take a classic shirtdress to the next level by opting for one in a bold color and work it with a pair of flashy pants and shoes! Blue and gold, anyone?

A lot of petite girls are iffy about layering dresses over pants because they're afraid of cutting their torso and end up looking shorter than usual. Petite girls, rejoice because you can rock this style equation, too! Monochromatic dressing never fails to make anyone look taller and leaner. So choose an LWD and layer it over a pair of fresh white pants for a clean and chic all-white outfit. Make your outfit pop effortlessly by toting a fun, bright bag to end the look.

For a cool casual look, rock a midi knit dress and pair it with sexy boyfriend jeans! End the look with trendy white sneakers, fun sunnies, and throw your hair in a messy bun for an effortlessly cool oufit.

The Rebecca Bloomwood of Manila. I spend half of my time obsessing about the latest fashion craze, and the other half overthinking and over-analyzing just about anything under the sun. When I’m not busy as a bee playing with fifty shades of pink lippies, you can probably catch me swiping my plastic for yet another pair of shiny, pointed gold flats.
