Wear a dress over pants
Wearing a dress over pants is a big It trend lately. Of course, you can waste your money and buy one of the “pre-styled” dress with pants outfit. But guess what, unless you wear the dress without the pants or the pants without the dress you only get one trendy new look.
Try the dress over pants look with items from your closet
It is easy to style a dress with pants. Denim-on-denim is always a good idea in this case. But you can also pair any straight print dress with pants. Use a belt to get nice proportions. Doing the dress over pants styling yourself provides you with many additional outfits. Straight black pants or slim leather pants with an A-style printed or texture dress are also good candidates for the look.
Here some further inspirations for the dress over pants look from my closet.
Wear a dress as a skirt or shirt
My favorite tricks to get more wear out of my wardrobe are to look at a dress not only as a dress, but also as a shirt or a skirt. Would you think that the top in the next two photos is actually a dress from summer? You saw this dress already in the post at the link.
Wear a dress as a skirt
The next two photos show an example of how I wore my polka dot dress as a skirt this fall.
Here are some further inspirations on how to wear a dress as a skirt.
Wear a cardigan as a top
I think I have worn the cardigan shown in the above photo more often as a top than as a cardigan. 😉 How is that? Alaska is cold most of the year, does that count as an excuse? Or is “I hate ironing blouses or shirts” a better one? LOL.
Here are some further examples of styling a cardigan as top for your inspiration.
What pieces of your closet could you wear in a different way? Will you try to get more outfits of the items you already own with these easy to copy tricks? Which outfit idea pops up in your mind? Send me your examples by email with your name and IG handle or blog address, and I will feature the first ten here on the blog.
