I think it was the early 2000’s when the jeans-under-dresses look last reared its head in force, and I hated it at the time. I don’t know if I’ve changed or it’s the way women are styling the look it this time around, but I’m loving it! I was so inspired that I tried it out myself recently. My teenager made fun, but that’s to be expected.
My favorite dress-over-jeans looks on the fashion week streets this month were the sheer, lighter-than-air frocks worn over rough denim. When I first glimpsed Susie Lau of Style Bubble in her gray chiffon, one-shouldered number layered over shredded jeans and a black tee, my brain failed to compute for a moment. The outfit seemed more than a little on the crazy side. But then I fell in love. That’s the magic of street style mavens—they can take you from fruity to fashion in the blink of an eye.
