|Dress City Chic-here and here, Pants-Talbots, Shoes-Khol's,|
It’s time for another edition of #30plusstyle and this time we are discussing “Trending, Dresses over Pants”. This time around was a complete and total challenge for me. Though I am not one to shy away from trends, I fully believe that some things are better left for either celebrities or editorial pieces. Pairing a dress with pants is definitely one of those trends that I would never try on my own. Actually that’s not entirely true, in middle school I used to wear baby doll dresses over bell bottoms all the time. I cringe when I look back at pictures to this day and ask my Mom why she didn’t put a stop to my madness.
I went around and around on this look and took several pictures but nothing quite felt like me. I didn’t know why I couldn’t get it together with this challenge, and then I came to the conclusion that it didn’t fit into my personal aesthetic. Year after year we are bombarded by so many new trends to try, that it’s hard to be okay with one not fitting into your personal style. I often feel less fashionable or like a fuddy-duddy when I don’t understand or want to try a trend. Despite my personal feelings about this I knew the show must go own and I had to find a way to create a look that was indicative of my personal style and that made me happy.
After many tries I paired my versatile City Chic dress with a pair of skinny pants and my all-time favorite neon pumps! Finally I was happy with this look and thought I could rock this out one night or too dinner with friends!So what do you guys think of skirts or dresses over pants? I know Beyoncé was recently seen in them but does that change your feelings?
