Dress over pants? Is that a thing now? Apparently, it is. This trend all started when Emma Watson wore a Christian Dior couture gown to her movie premiere and it shocked the entire world. While it may seem taboo at that time, there is no denying the fact that this young star certainly has the personal style to pull off and even make it a trend.

If Emma Watson was able to perfectly pull off wearing a  couture dress over pants, then you should not prevent yourself from trying out this trend and making it your own. Below are some of the most amazing ideas on how to wear dress over pants.

Choose a pants with streamlined silhouette.

When it comes to wearing dress over pants, the best tip that you should keep in mind is to opt for a very simple pants with clean lines and no too much décor. For example, avoid pants with too many belt loops, pockets or pleats. Keep it as simple as possible. In this way, your look will not be ruined by the bumps and lumps from these items that will show though once you layer your dress.

Use leggings instead.

If you can’t find a pants that is free from all of the items and designs that we have mentioned above, we recommend going for leggings instead. We don’t think that we have to say this anymore but leggings are tight fitting so you will not have any problems with the appearance of unwanted bulges in your outfit. Just make sure that you opt for leggings that are really thin so you will not have any problems.

Keep it neutral.

Since this trendy is quite risky enough, we recommend that you stick with neutrals like black, tan, brown and white since you can never go wrong with these colors. You can also try pairing dresses and pants with the same color so you can create a monochromatic look which will make you look taller and slimmer.

Keep you dress loose.

If you wish to pull off this look, the best thing that you can do is to avoid tight fitting bodycon dresses because it can be quite difficult to find a pair of pants that will not be visible underneath a bodycon. Instead, we recommend that you opt for shirt, trapeze dresses or any dresses that are roomy and flowy enough to conceal the pants underneath.
