I never stopped loving the dress (or longer tunic) over pants look, I especially like the more dressy renditions for myself. Ashley’s two fantastic outfits yesterday, really got me in the mood to wear this silhouette more often again. So I’ve rounded up some looks that might appeal to you too:
- Verily’s Mastering the Art of Fall Layering With the Dress-Over-Pants Look.
- Frock with subtle A-line over slim-fit pleated trousers.
- Architectural lines with cropped pants.
- Colour block with lots of white.
- Dark column of colour with metallic sheen.
