HOW TOesday: Wear a dress over pants

1cristina-feather-il-passo Recunosc ca uneori imi insusesc tendinte doar pentru ca le vad pe anumite persoane pe care le admir din punct de vedere stilistic sau pentru ca un designer pe care il indragesc a lansat acea tendinta. Uneori, chiar daca ma simt neconfortabil cu un trend, tot il incerc. Uneori nu apuc sa-mi cumpar un lucru care imi place la timp, apoi il vad la toata lumea si simt ca o sa “throw up”. Daca am apucat sa-l cumpar, il abandonez intr-un colt al sifonierului pentru a-l purta mai tarziu, cand se duce nebunia. Alte dati incerc un trend doar sa vad daca mi se potriveste, fara sa stiu exact ce o sa iasa. Asta s-a intamplat si acum: am purtat o rochie peste pantaloni. Cum vi se pare rezultatul final? Mie imi place.


I admit I sometimes absorb trends because a person I admire tries that thing first or a designer I love does it. And sometimes, even though I don’t feel totally comfortable with some of the fashions I see on the street style & runways, I still give them a try. Sometimes I decide to buy something too late and after seeing it on everybody it instantly becomes obnoxious. And then, there are some things, that I try just to see how they fit, not knowing if I’ll like the result. That’s what happened here: I am wearing a dress over a pair of jeans. What do you think about it?

Treaba cu fusta/rochia peste pantaloni e veche. E veche in sensul ca prin 2010 designerii deja faceau asta. Dar e veche si in sensul de… veche-veche, pentru ca imi amintesc ca am mai incercat o data combinatia pe cand eram in scoala generala. Horror movie! Dar daca perseverez, pe semne ca imi place. Sincer, nici eu nu stiu. Dar sentimentul e pretty damn cool. Cum sa faci sa-ti iasa?

* Alege pantaloni super skinny sau pantaloni drepti, calcati la dunga. Vezi prezentarile Raf Simons pentru Dior: varianta 1 ss/14; varianta 2 resort 14; varianta 3 fw/13

* Colantii nu sunt pantaloni.

* Opteaza fie pentru o rochie/fusta bufanta cu super mult volum, fie pentru materiale diafane ultra-feminine

* Materialele mulate nu sunt o idee buna in principiu. Eu am riscat.

* Poarta tocuri inalte si subtiri.

* Fii mereu atenta la lungimea rochiei/fustei.

De ce imi place? E o combinatie care mixeaza masculinul si femininul, iar asta este unul dintre primele lucruri care-mi vin in gand atunci cand ma imbrac.

Cine a mai purtat aceasta combinatie intr-un mod super-super chic? Emma Watson, Leandra Medine (I love you!), Yasmin Sewell ( Perfection!), Maja Wyh (My latest woman crush)

Nu uitati de concursul Pandora la care puteti castiga o bratara si un talisman ESSENCE! Si mai important, nu uitati sa-mi spuneti parerea voastra!



This skirt/dress over pants thing is old. Designers where having this on the runway in the spring of 2010 but it’s even older than that because I can recall me, in school, trying this trend on. And it was not good, I tell you! But even so, it must be something about it that I feel I have to try it again. I can’t really put my finger on it. But the feeling of an outfit like this is pretty damn cool! How can you make it work?

* Choose super skinny pants or straight pants. See Raf Simons for Christian Dior for inspiration: ss14 / resort 14 / fw13

* Leggings are not pants.

* Elasticated fabrics are usually not OK. I took a chance.

* High and feminine heels are a must.

* Pay attention to the length of the skirt/dress.

Why do I like this trend? Because of the mixing of masculine with feminine touches. And I am a big fan of that.

Who wore it before and inspired me? Emma Watson; Leandra Medine; Yasmin Sewell, Maja Wyh
