Wear it now: Dresses over pants
We bring you the best tricks to help pull off the look
Keep it ladylike, clean and interesting. We love the understated sensuality in this cut-out dress and how it's paired with an austere pair of pleated pants.
Go the extra mile, and clash your prints. It sounds a lot harder than it looks – simply keep your patterns with a fixed palette. Other tricks to try? Stripes in opposite directions to look like a walking optical illusion.
The easiest trick to street style star status is to pair the unexpected – work a voluminous structured dress with embroidered pants – a minimalistic, yet dressed up approach.
The volume-with-volume approach to dressing can be a challenge but the trick is to keep the lines clean and structured. We also swear by toning down a look that might seem over-the-top by steering clear of distracting accessories and sticking to a pair of basic white trainers.
A leather T-shirt dress paired with cropped pants is pretty much a dummies guide to grunge. Slip into a pair of leather slides, and put on some slinky chains and you’ve attained instant badass status.
Looking to break the obvious gender-specific approach to evening dressing? Try layers of tulle over no-nonsense, front-creased denim trousers.
