Noticed: Dresses Over Jeans

It’s no big mystery that a dress is, by reductionist standards, a long shirt (no offense to a silhouette we rely on for its versatility), so when we noticed women wearing dresses over pants—you know, as shirts—we had to test out the simple tweak ourselves.

The Ease-Into-It Way

Black skinny jeans, if you think about it, aren’t all that unlike tights, so they can essentially be treated similarly for an effect that’s a touch more familiar. That said, we suggest letting your jeans bunch up around the tops of ankle boots or your favorite sneakers as a way of saying, “yes, this is denim.”

The All-In Way

This is what we call owning it: Pair lighter washed jeans with a loose, luxe dress. Those are jeans, loud and proud—not leggings, not tights—and the effect when coupled with a silk dress seems to say, “Silk? Fancy? Says who?”

And the number of shirts in your wardrobe just doubled.
