The layered look has been a popular trend in recent years, and this season, trendsetters are taking it a bold step further with the dress over pants. If you are thinking of wearing a dress over pants and wondering whether it even makes sense. Yes it does, and you’ll love it. This ‘90s inspired trend is a cool new way to update items you already own by pairing them in a unique way that might not initially come to mind. Let’s see how you can nail your dress over pants. Check out some fashion tips and inspirations below.

How to Style Dress Over PantsSpeaking of dresses, the interpretation of a dress over pants isn’t just for mini dresses. Try a midi dress with skinny jeans, or slim-fitting trousers and some stilettos, or a knee-length dress with cropped denim and some classic ballet flats or loafers. As what is trending now, fashion influencers are choosing longer hems that sit just above the knee or midi lengths for a street style edge, paired with a top and/or jacket. Take a look at style inspirations from the runway – Fall Winter 2015 or Spring Summer 2016 – and see how you can rock the look.

When you’re in doubt how to pull off this tricky, yet super cool trend, here are a few easy tips to follow, whether you want to go for a safe look or bolder style:

Play it Safe with Neutral Color

Dress Over Pants in Neutral ColorsNeutral shades like black, white, camel, khaki, navy, or grey can never go wrong with this trend. The long shirt-dress in solid neutral worn over skinnies is extra-sophisticated with an even longer coat. Here you may put colors or prints on your tote or pumps for giving more of an interest – yet still looking almost invisible – in the whole look.

It’s All about Proportions

Dress Over Skinny JeansOpting for the dress-over-pants fashion means you have to think of the proportion. For a safe look, choose a mini or short dress that hits around your mid-thigh, simple and well fitted to the body for a streamlined look – just like how you wear a long tunic shirt. Pair it with slim-cut trousers to create a balanced silhouette. Depending on your confidence and personal style, some girls can pull off the look rocked by Jessica Alba with midi dress or over the knee summer dress, but sometimes, it will overwhelm most frames. Be mindful that sometimes a dress with a really full bottom half or lots of material and draping may not be the most flattering choice.

Slit Dress Over Pants

Skinny Jeans as a Must-have

Dress Over Slim Fit PantsSpeaking of proportion, skinny jeans or jeggings will no doubt look great with most dresses, or other slim-fit trousers such as linen pants, cigarette pants, crop pants, even yoga pants can look neat when styled the right way. If you go with a pair of boot cut jeans or flares, these can also work, and look best when paired with a dress that is more fitted around its hemline.

Dress Over Flare Pants

Go Monochromatically

Monochromatic Dress Over Pants Dress Over Dress Chic TrendAs the trend goes really well through runways and street styles, some label proposes their pieces in a set of dress-over-pants styles, which most of them come in monochromatic colors, prints, and even in matching fabric. It gives the whole outfit a really sophisticated and fashion-forward feel. If you have similar staples – between bottom and top – in your closet, try the look and do your own mix and match, for example, denim dress worn over a pair of skinny jeans, or cotton dress with pants in similar monochromatic colors. You could also achieve the same effect by layering one color similar to the pants. These layers can be your outerwear or shirt that worn underneath a sweater.

How To Mix Match Dress Over Pants Mix and Match Dress Over Pants

Mix Things Up with Layers

How to Layer Dress Over Pants

Especially during winter or cold days, playing with layers is super fun to rock the trend. Don’t be afraid to get a little crazy and mix things up. Pull different seasonal pieces – think summer dress over a pair of denim pants, boots, and oversized coat – and see how they might work together. You might also try an oversized boyfriend sweater over a silk slip dress over skinny jeans and open-toe sandals. The trend is definitely all about experimentation.

Opt for Heels for Taller Silhouette

Dress Over Pants with Heels

Unless you are very tall, the reinterpretation of the dress over pants trend looks best when worn with a mid to high heel as it will help you feel less frumpy. Managing the added bulk of unfamiliar layers is easier when your legs look their longest and your feet feel a little sexier.    A pointy pump also looks best and peep toe boots look equally stylish

Bold Colors for Stunning Look

Vibrant Color Dress Over PantsWhen you are ready for the next further step to look stunning and bold, go for bright colors or do a bit of splash of colors on your outfit. Pick one bright colored staple among the neutrals to make it pop even more.

In the last couple of years, we cannot help but notice a huge resurgence of Victorian vibe in everything from fairy tale-inspired styles to Gothically themed looks. And for this Fall Winter 2015 runway shows, be it an elegant high-neck ruffled collar or the melancholy elegance of black lace, a Victorian mood, again, has pervaded the catwalks. Designers like Alexander McQueen, Alberta Ferretti and Valentino placed the energy of the era as much as it was to the nineteenth-century queen, while others like Erdem, Sophie Theallet and Roberto Cavalli bring the Victorian influences in a thoroughly urban milieu, giving much fresher, edgier and modern twist into the look. Fall Winter 2015-2016 Victorian-inspired Runway ShowsFall Winter 2015-2016 Victorian-inspired Runway Shows In case this is your first time hearing about Victorian fashion, this style was first observed during the 19th century, referring to the fashion trends of the British culture that existed during the reign of queen Victoria, which then known as the Victorian era. Nowadays, the inclusion of these beautiful pieces of 19th Century couture serve to add a whimsical and elegant touch to modern collections with some characteristics of the Victorian fashion remained the same. If you’re looking to take advantage of the traditional flair of Victorian fashion with a contemporary take, you don’t have to go fully dressed. You can always get inspired by this style and incorporate a few items in your look. Whether you are looking for a modern, gothic look or elegant, romantic style, the key is to pick out elements of Victorian inspiration and feel free to pair them with other classic wardrobe essentials. Victorian Elements Ruffled designs mixed with chic lace or satin are common features of the trend. Especially for lace, started from tops and dresses in simple design to staples with exquisite embellishments like embroidery, fashion items made of lace can be considered as a must-have for Victorian-inspired style as it will give your outfit a more edgy vintage update. Gothic vs Romantic Depending on the look you’re going for, to enhance Victorian look, opt for blouses or dresses made of classic fabrics like lace, velvet, or silk. You could also get pearl-style buttons stitched to complete the look, or choose neckline with high-neck ruffled collar, off-the-shoulder, or other consignment collar with embellishments like rhinestones, pearl, etc. Velvet, lace and chiffon trim are also welcome. Obviously, gothic fashion evokes much darker vibe compared to the one with romantic touch. However, whichever your style is, Victorian styles are all about femininity and couture elegance featuring delicate, ladylike ensembles, which are often combined with a little edge. So basically, the more your vintage outfit looks feminine, the more Victorian it is. If you opt for separates rather than a dress, a pair of free-flowing full skirt with Victorian-style top will definitely evoke a perfect Victorian look, creating even stronger feminine touch and modesty, while if you prefer a more modern take on your Victorian blouse, pair yours with leather pants, classic trousers, skinnies or a pencil skirt, paired with classic pumps If you are unsure as to whether or not the pieces you are wearing are too much for your modern wardrobe, keep in mind that less is good, and use just one or maximum two Victorian style pieces while mix and matching the trend with everyday-wear clothing for optimal versatility. Pairing one or two of these vintage pieces with a simple pair of skinny jeans or leggings is a great way to sport the trend without overdoing it. Victorian Accessories Since Victorian itself offers a great range of romantic and lavish patterns and elements, be careful when putting all your outfits together. To nail down such glamorous style outfits, if yours is already busy with embellishments like ruffles, beads, or embroideries, avoid wearing any jewelry or at least opt for a very dainty and subtle one, like small studded earrings. On the other hand, if you’re looking for a statement look, sometimes, true follower of Victorian style can also opt for a statement necklace with large pearls. You could as well match your lace dress with some Victorian style earrings, or brooches, or necklaces, as well as heels and your graceful look is guaranteed. Victorian Patterns Another easy way of nailing down the luxe of Victorian trend can be wearing any fashion wardrobe with ornate Victorian-styled patterns such as vintage rose and baroque prints. You can make a statement by opting for a Baroque-printed staple, wear it with your daywear combos and add glamour and chic to your look. Modern Victorian Fashion Trend Last but not least, even though ways of style the Victorian trend are endless. Just make sure not to overuse this trend by opting for too many Victorian-styled pieces at a time.

Proposing another unconventional wedding dress designs, Houghton Bride by designer Katharine Polk releases the latest Fall Winter 2016 wedding dress collection inspired by the looks of “Kate Moss meets Penny Lane”. From a range of mini dresses, to fringe gowns, to fur separates with a 70s inspired twist, challenging the ideas of what a ‘wedding dress’ should look like, the new collection was divided in to five sections, each playing with color and texture, channeling the label’s most recent ready-to-wear line.

With the ingenuity of the dresses, the muted colors, the classical shapes, the glamour and the hippy air shown throughout the line-ups, each of these edgy selections really has a place in the Fairytale Dress array of out of the ordinary gorgeous dresses. Discover more from Houghton’s new collection below.

Houghton Bride Fall Winter 2016 Lookbook 02 Houghton Bride Fall Winter 2016 Lookbook 05Revealing a beautiful continuity of signature prints and details, the pieces stay true to the designer’s modern, urban bohemian aesthetic featuring plenty of nude Chantilly, silk fringe, shearling furs and dreamy floral prints adorning the garments. There’s a blending of sleek seventies silhouettes (think sequins or long white sleeves and fringing falling from the waist) with a more bohemian sixties influence that all sat together with remarkable effortlessness.
