Wear a dress over pants for more outfits
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.Look at your clothes beyond their purpose for more outfits from what you already own. #dress4success Click To Tweet
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 are further inspirations for the dress-over-pants look with pieces from my closet.
Wear a dress as a skirt or shirt for more chic looks
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. You can wear a fit-and-flare dress as A-line skirt and a sheath as straight 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 further examples for your inspiration of how to style a cardigan as top for more outfits from your wardrobe.
