Something I thought I do never combine or wear together, are a jeans with a dress. Somehow I end up with it right now and I have to admit, I quite love the combination. Since it is too cold to wear my new floral Weekday dresswith bare legs, I thought I do give my jeans a try. Result: a new style born! But how to rock your denim and dresses? Because we don’t want to look like a farmer lady if you know what I mean.. Here are my golden rules:
Make sure you have an outstanding dress
When you pair a denim with a simple long dress, you are sure you will look like your grandma who just woke up and forgot to change her pajamas into a blouse. Make sure you have a dress that steals the attention. Go for a bold color, print or something embroidered. Just stay away from the nightwear.
Choose a well fitted jeans
Make sure you have a jeans that fits you well. A skinny is always easy going, but make sure it isn’t too tight so it looks like a legging. Personally I prefer a straight jeans, like the Wrangler jeans I am wearing, or maybe even a flared. Just dare to play to see what fits the best to your posture.
Have enough color contrast in your dress and jeans
This comes close to the first point, because if you wear your dress and jeans in the same color tone, your outfits is getting boring. Make sure you go for a little contrast. For my dark floral dress, it was better to go for a little lighter jeans than a darker one. The same if you do the opposite. But think about turning it around as well. How cool would a white dress be with a green jeans for example. Again, dare to play. Fashion is fun!
