styling: dresses over pants

 

From structured oxford button ups to concert tees (thank you Rihanna), it wasn’t long before the oversized shirt trend evolved for the colder weather. We’ve jumped from shirts as dresses to actual dresses as shirts…crazy, right?! It’s the perfect way to stretch the life of not only your summer wardrobe but your formal wardrobe as well. While it seems daring, the look is almost effortless to pull off.
