These days, I’m all about versatility when purchasing clothes. And even though I don’t usually jump hard on new trends, one current trend that a girl like me can really appreciate is the “wear a dress as a top” look.
This trend gives your dresses a whole new purpose. For example, this dress that I’m wearing today came to me as a mini dress. Yet, I found it to be a little short. Instead of returning it and doing away with it, I decided that I still loved the floral pattern and girly off-the-shoulder style of the dress.
My solution? Wear it over my jeans. I was instantly pleased!
Y’all know that I love a great pair of jeans and cute heels. So, those were really the only additional pieces that I needed to finish off this look. These nude heels are from ASOS, and let me tell you that as a brown girl, it’s hard trying to find a nude shoe that’s really NUDE on my skin. When I came across these babies, I knew I had to have them. And for only $40, who could resist that!
For accessories, I kept it very simple, per usual, by adding my favorite hoop earrings and necklace. I’m trying to get away from being too “matchy-matchy”, but I really liked this bag from Target with the top, so I added it as the final touch.
How cute did this look turn out! This dress-pant combo works perfectly for casual settings such as date night or a fun day out with family (minus the heels). I will definitely be continuing this trend throughout the year. I’m even thinking about trying it out with a maxi dress as well. What do you think about the “wear a dress as a top” trend?
