So when I was growing up in Indiana, we used to do it…Wear pants under dresses that is.
You see, in the early to mid-1970s girls were not allowed to wear pants to school. Therefore on below freezing school days, when tights just wouldn’t cut it, we would put pants on under our dresses and skirts. It kept us warm but was a questionable fashion statement even for the 70s.
Fast forward to Paris Fall Fashion Week 2019, and there it was. Layering took a slight twist as models walked the runway wearing dresses over pants. I am a huge fan of layering, so any opportunity to do so is welcome.
I believe this trend might just catch on, so I’ll be scanning the shop windows for such examples. Want to join me?
