Hi, remember back in Junior & High School ( this is for us baby boomers) there was a actually a dress code that did not allow girls to wear pants to school. Maybe not all schools but definitely mine in the Northeast. A common practice in the winter season was walking to school with a pair of pants under a dress or skirt. What a drag that was because once you got to school you would have to change. But at the same time warmth was a priority.
Who thought this combination could become a fashion trend? Well it did.
I saw this in a recent posting and thought how cute!
It definitely looks different than I remember!!
Also, shorter length dresses and skirts are back but, I believe I’m too old to wear one. I set out to put a similar look together.
I decided not to add the coat and hat (let’s make it simple.)
So after some changes I went with this.
Jeans – Gap Dress – H&M Shoes – Nine West (similar)
What do you think?
Jeans are always a classic so I added this Mini dress from H&M (which is now on sale).
It’s mixing two styles to create a cool different look. I added the low heel pumps to look more modern. You could substitute for wedge heels.
Some could wear the dress alone, I just chose not to. I like the look. It works for in-between weather especially with Spring on the way!
Look outside the box
Keep with transitional pieces
Have fun with it

I love that look for year-round. In the winter it would be warmer than bare legs or stockings. In the summer it would be really cute with a really light fabric minidress or long top, like you’ve shown. Love it!
I just love all of the outfits you put together!!! Great job, I like the layered look and no my school did not allow pants either – we’ve come a long way baby!!!
