Dress Over Jeans

In the late 90’s, my sister reported to me, in her most horrified voice, that my cousin had taken to wearing jeans under her dresses. I imagined long, prarie-style dresses over stone-wash, boot-cut jeans and shook my head at such a fashion faux pas. Little did I know that I would one day emulate her combination, with a little tweaking. For my own dress-over-jeans looks, I choose an above-the-knee dress and dark, slim jeans.


Dress, Branna Studio San Francisco (thrifted). Sweater, Joseph A (thrifted). Jeggings, Mossimo. Belt, thrifted. Boots, Dan Post. Headband, self-made. Earrings, Urban Outfitters. Kitty, Zoro.


I understand my cousin’s motivation for pairing the two garments. The denim adds warmth, modesty, and a utilitarian feel to a frock. I love how dresses flatter my figure, but hate how they restrict my movements. With a pair of jeans underneath, I can sit as unladylike as I please.

    Ok, the last two feature jeans under a skirt (the last one hiked up above the bust), but close enough!

    I'm still on the fence about dress over jeans for me personally - possibly because I don't own any dresses short enough for the proportions to be right. Your version definitely looks good though! I love the way the boots, belt and your hair are almost the same colour and add a sort of unifying theme.
