I recently read an article about dresses over jeans. By showing off a bunch of stars from the early 2000s wearing tight slip dresses over bootcut jeans paired with baker boy hats, the author made her opinion pretty clear that this style should never return to the fashion world. Although I am not with every outfit that has been worn by Britney or Xtina in the era of low rise jeans and ultra crop tops, dresses over jeans have always been one of my favorite layering games for late summer/early autumn days. If you don't want to leave your treasured summer dress in the back of your closet and still take it out for a spin once it gets chilly, pants are the perfect solution to stay warm.

My love for this special pairing started by wearing leggings underneath, but after a brief period of wearing them on a daily basis at the age of 12, I lost interest and only wear them at the gym now. So what's the key to making it work?
The easiest way is to wear trousers in the same color and fabric as your dress, which makes your look very elegant even when you're not (as seen in this look). If you decide on different colored pants, make sure the upper part is not too wide and has many pockets, otherwise it could end up looking bulky. One of my main choices is to keep everything loose and voluminous, both the dress and the trousers or in today's case: cropped jeans look especially relaxed and make you appear taller than you actually are.

At first, it is not that easy to find the right combination, but you will find what works best for you and I usually just go with my gut and don't think about rules or what others might say.
