In the early ‘00s, fashion-forward teens and young women were sporting the dress-over-pants trend, somehow making a sundress and a pair of jeans work effortlessly together. And whether you personally embraced it back then or not, this trend is back in style for the summer of 2019.
Bella Hadid and Rihanna are among the celebrities who’ve sported the dress-over-pants trend as of late, so we trust that it’s truly becoming a thing again—Bella is a full-fledged supermodel who knows a thing or two about style, while RiRi is hard at work on her debut clothing line, Fenty.
And the key to making it work for summer is not to make the look too stuffy and layered. Opt for a dress in a light fabric like silk, mesh or linen, and fitted denim jeans or light trousers, like the celeb ladies did.
Not sure what to pair with what to make this trend look effortlessly cool?
