Sporting a dress over cropped jeans is a fun way to wear your favourite dresses when it’s too chilly to go bare-legged — or when dresses are a tad short. For this Soft Edge Casual look, Ashley paired an above-the-knee shirtdress with cuffed straight-legged jeans. The tonal, low-contrast blue stripe against the dark wash denim creates a long, lean line. The slightly longer hem in the back adds a playful touch. Ashley juxtaposes the preppy stripe with edgy black open-backed pumps. The back tie, slanted block heel and on trend square round toe make for eye-catching peds. Her structured black tote complements the footwear perfectly. A gold pendant and cuff bracelet, bright red lipstick, and our blogger’s polished bob are the simple yet effective finishing touches.
