In the months of transitioning between the warm and cold, it’s terrible if we had to completely ditch our favourite dresses and rug up in our baggy jumpsuits and sweaters instead. On a cool day where it isn’t quite warm enough to bare your legs under a flowy dress, forget the thought of going comfy (but underdressed) in that sweater of yours — style that dress of yours with a chic pair of pants or jeans!

The combination can look messy if it isn’t done correctly. So, in an attempt to help you pull off this ever-so-effortless look and trend, we’ve turned to a few of our dresses here at GlamCorner. It all starts with finding the right pair of pants. Preferably in a black or a darker blue. Dark shades will make for more versatile colours that you can dress up or down with ease!

Rebecca Vallance The Society Frill Midi Dress - dress-over-pants styling

Dresses such as The Society Frill Midi Dress by Rebecca Vallance are perfect to flaunt this trend in! Made of intricate lace, with its layered, asymmetrical high-low hem and three-quarter bell sleeves, this dress is perfect to hire for a dressy daytime event or stand out to a cocktail party.

Opt for a pair of white, streamlined pants to go underneath this dress. Choose a pair of pants that doesn’t have too many belt loops, pockets or pleats — eliminating unnecessary bumps or lumps under your dress. You’re left with a wonderfully tailored look in matching shades of white, nailing the white-on-white and dress-over-pants trends!

Top it all off with a peach lip, nude heels and matching nude pod clutch, making a statement when you step out in this ensemble!
