Let’s Layer

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!

TIPS

  • Look outside the box

  • Keep with transitional pieces

  • Have fun with it

HAPPY SHOPPING

  1. 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!
