Dresses Over Jeans - How I Style Dresses

Posted on Sep 30, 2018

If you haven't noticed by now, I've never been much of a dress girl. I have 10 times as many pants as I have dresses and it's due to a couple factors: 1) I don't have the best body shape for long dresses (heavier on top, very slim on the bottom makes long dresses look frumpy without a cinched waist) + 2) I grew up a tomboy and always resisted the dresses my mom would put me in as a little girl. SO - whenever I do have to wear dresses, I opt for a button-down that allows me to wear pants underneath. 

This dress is from Modcloth and I paired it with this white collared shirt (surprise, surprise ;) as well as these A&F white jeans I love! I cinched the waist with the strap from my LV luggage (come in clutch everytime ;).

I'm in the Pemberley House Hijab (sold out, but check out our latest prints here) and these fun Seychelle wedges that add a fun pop of color. Enjoy!! xoxo, Mel
