Spring Trends: Dress-Over-Jeans

DSC_0172

I bought this dress on my honeymoon in 1998. I KNOW! Impossible because I’m so young. (Hahaha!) Funnily enough, it’s almost considered vintage! (20 years is the criteria for vintage clothing.) I fell in love with this dress and have worn it many, many times over the years.

But, as I’ve gotten older, I just don’t wear dresses as short as I used to – and I shouldn’t, truth be told. It’s just not as flattering as a knee-length or midi dress for me.

Several years ago, I realized I could wear this dress as a top with skinny jeans and cute shoes.

I love the dress-over-jeans look. (I linked to more inspiring images in this post.) There are many ways to make this work with a variety of dress lengths, vintage or current. Today, I’ll show you three:

1. Short dress as a tunic with skinny jeans.

This is not a vintage dress but a “new-to-me” dress I thrifted from Old Navy. It’s fun in a bright color and paired with bright flats.

2. Midi dress and cuffed jeans.

This vintage dress hits below the knee, so it looks better with heels. It has the same silhouette as a jacket and jeans and can look very elegant. (See it on Etsy here.)

3. Long button up dress as a vest or jacket.

This is a good option for a vintage dress – remember those long button-up short sleeved (or sleeveless) dresses we wore in the early 90s? They are making a comeback, too. (See it on Etsy here.)

And even if you’re not a fan of dresses over jeans, I’ve got some other fun vintage spring dresses in my shop – click here to check them out.
