Dress Over Trousers | Is it Still A Thing?

I think I know the answer. I think the answer is no. But ever since I got my hands on this sweet tartan smock, being winter and all, my instinct has just been to throw it over jeans…

And isn’t red tartan plus blue denim so lush? Red and blue denim, full stop. Anyway, I know dresses over trousers just isn’t a thing anymore because I haven’t seen it on anyone for yonks. Yes, maybe in the odd catwalk show or in trend pieces as someone tried to persuade us it’s coming back. But the whole of nineties has come back, except this. How come? I definitely used to do it back in the nineties. But, overall, I think these days people want leggings or tights beneath their dresses, not waste a whole load of trouser. But I could be wrong. Just as much as style is a personal journey it can sometimes be quite a blinkered one too. And this coming from someone who spends alot (ALOT) of time reading blogs.

Anyway, I’m not sure where this going really? I suppose only I can decide whether I can get away with, carry off the whole look. I like it but I do feel like a relic from the past when faced with other peeps, which probably isn’t a good thing when it comes to fashion. It can be out of the past but if it doesn’t feel even slightly current, then maybe not. Thoughts, people?

In other news, we finally visited our friend’s fabulous new bar, Sager & Wilde on Hackney Road today and I have some gorgeous photos to show you. The sun was pouring through the windows just right and even though my 50mm lens is definitely a bit wonky – the repair job didn’t quite fix all the autofocus points I now realise – hopefully I got enough lovely photos to persuade you to go visit if you’re ever in east London.

And, in case you’re thinking what cute socks (yes, they are pugs!) these came in my little #AccessAllASOS package which arrived the other day….

  1. The look is totally working! and besides these jeans are nice and tight so they could almost be jaggings (are those still ok?)
    And there you go again promoting east London! 🙂 I’m definitely going to hike out there next time I’m in town.
