Do I need an excuse to wear dress-over-pants look? Clearly not! See how I styled this versatile look, here, here, and here. Not only does styling trick add a still much needed extra layer, but creates more opportunities for fresh looks form pieces already in my closet. And it solves many styling conundrums–like how to wear a see-through dress, a too short dress, a dress with a slit up to there.
The Modish mini is from the Phillip Lim x H&M collab from a few years back. The jeans are a new addition from H&M. I love how flattering the cropped flare is, as it exposes the thinnest part of the ankle, (I can’t wait to wear these with with sandals in the summer!), and the tension between the mismatched, frayed hem and the geometry of the dress.
I must admit this is my first pair of white shoes, (scored these at Zara), and I’m a convert! Never considered them flattering before, but they just look so fresh and chic now.
For jewelry I went with a some of my fave 80s earrings, that seems to go with any kind of look. The organic diamond shape with a cut-out is very sculptural, and for the rest I added pieces that are as distinct as the earrings–a chunky link bracelet, a spike ring, and an oversized cameo ring (a family heirloom, that was originally a brooch).
