Deepika & Shraddha have made wearing dresses over pants a thing

For those days when your visit to the waxing lady is long overdue...

Maybe your legs just aren’t having a good day or maybe your cute little sheath dress isn’t very office-appropriate. Either way, this new trend is going to come in like a chilled mimosa on a sultry afternoon: Dresses over pants are a thing, and your trusty jeans can now accompany you everywhere; praise be.

Deepika Padukone dug into her bag of tricks for a recent dash across the airport, and pulled out a perfectly proportionate maxi-and-denims look. Anushka Sharma followed suit with layers for the night, while Shraddha Kapoor threw on a pair of knee-high boots for instant glam.

How do you get it right without looking like you’re drowning under all the layers? Here’s a visual guide to how Bollywood’s best have been acing this tricky trend.

Deepika, Anushka and more nail the dress-over-pants trend

Elsewhere, Alia Bhatt made the trend red carpet-worthy by pairing her high-low Monique Lhuillier number with sleek black leggings.

Anushka Sharma’s ripped denims help keep the interest alive under a semi-buttoned tunic.

The dress-over-pants trend can work in some easy glam too. Shraddha Kapoor matched her fringe Rohit Gandhi + Rahul Khanna number with black denims and high boots. 

Since it’s all too easy for a pair of denims to get lost under a flared dress, a high slit helped Deepika Padukone show off some leg.

As with all good things in life, you can’t have the best of both worlds. If your dress is voluminous, opt for fitted leggings like Jacqueline Fernandez, and vice versa.
