Last week, gorgeous blogger Alixrose tweeted about wearing dresses over jeans and asked followers whether it's a do or a don't. I replied, "Hehe I'm wearing jeans under my shirtdress today! imo it doesn't look ridiculous b/c so many 'dresses' today are short and tunic-like, so you can just wear them as long shirts!" I promised Alixrose I'd post the outfit and give her a shout-out, so here it is.
As you can see, wearing a dress over jeans isn't the only style rule I'm breaking here. There's also pattern-mixing (the striped scarf with the smaller stripe of the shirtdress) and some mixing of metals (gold earrings and bracelet, silver flats). Oh, and the cuffed jeans? It's purely the influence of the Japanese fashion magazines I picked up. All the girls were doing it to show off slender ankles and cute shoes, and the proportions really worked with their petite stature.
Do you enjoy breaking fashion rules or are you a stickler for them? Which ones have you flouted lately?
- Shirtdress (H&M)
- Jeans (Banana Republic)
- Ballet flats (Yosi Samra)
- Scarf (vintage)
- Bracelet (Lysh & Lo)
- Earrings (Swarovski, gift from a friend)
