Don’t lock away those summer dresses just yet! They’re a necessary ingredient to one of the chicest looks of the fall season. Yes, we’re talking about the dress-over-pants trend. Layering is nothing new for transitional temperatures, so don’t be intimidated by this experimental look. It’s easy to pull off, and a great way to make a brand new outfit out of two items you already own. To show you what we mean, here are six stylish ways to wear dresses over pants.

1. Matchy Matchy

For a look that can go from the office to happy hour, pair pieces with similar prints for a stylish yet sophisticated ensemble.

2. Summer Dressin’

Thought you were done with that strappy summer dress? Think again. Wear it with bell-bottoms and sky high platforms for a fun 70’s feel.

3. Night Owl

Take that slip dress from your pajama drawer out for a night on the town. Pair it with a strappy heel and leather pants for a flirty (yet fully covered) look.

4. Go Monochrome

We’re kind of obsessed with olive for late summer/early fall. So why not go all out? This Burberry dress and Yeezy boots are standouts on their own, and even better together.

5. See It Through

You know that dress you bought and then realized it was completely see through when you brought it home? Yeah. Wear it with skinny jeans and a bodysuit. Problem solved.

6. Cut It Out

Cutout tunics give the perfect little flash of skin when worn with pants. We love this Elizabeth & James number with white culottes and Margiela kicks.
