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!

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.
