The trend that you now see a lot is the dress over a trousers trend. I love it. I already wore it in the nineties, damn how old I sound now, and in the zero’s it was already a trend again. Funny is that many men don’t like this trend at all. What do they know!
*Ad This dress is part of a collaboration where I was allowed to chose some items.
How to wear the dress over trousers trend
The most stylish way is to wear a shirt dress half open on trousers. That’s how you see it in the magazines and on Pinterest. Today I am wearing a short dress, which I would never wear as a dress, over trousers. A young girl could easily wear this chain print dress with a pair of beautiful high heels underneath. Because I don’t feel comfortable wearing a short dress, I wear it over a pair of trousers. In the 90’s I already wore dresses over trousers, I received a lot of comments about it. I can’t remember that there was any person who liked it. Except me then! And I have worn it a lot, nobody is strong enough to not let me wear what I want.(except Gerben)
Chain printed dress
I was able to choose this dress for a collaboration with Femme Luxe. Although I have already said in this post that I am not a very huge fan of this kind of print, I have chosen it again. I think I like it better than I thought. This print was already seen in the 60s and 70s and was later widely used by Versace. And now you can see it again a lot in the fall collections.
How I wear the dress over trousers trend now in my fifties
Back then I also wore a short dress over trousers, not a shirt dress. You could say that I wore it here. Like the trend now is, only those are more leggings then trousers. This chain print dress, doesn’t it have wonderful colors, with jeans is for me a perfect match. You all know that I don’t like jeans that much. So now I am wearing jeans but hiding it a bit! Lol! The mules and the hairband give me a bit of a 70s feel. Well, a lot of decades come along in this post! The hairband is the strap of the dress, but I like the lacquer belt better.
Would really appreciate it if you would share my outfit on Pinterest! Just hoover over the photo!
I would love it if you could follow me on Instagram!
My favorite of last week is: Suzanne of Crazy Blonde Life

What a great way to wear a dress! I love how it looks belted and with trousers. The added headband is a perfect touch to kick this entire outfit up a notch!

Thank you very much Maureen!
I have always liked the dress over pants look – this is a lovely example of it. I like this bold pattern, and love that you tied the self-belt as a headband!
Nancy you look amazing. This dress looks like a tunic, I like this style.
Hi Nancy, it’s been a while – busy summer! I love how you’ve done this look with a ’60s vibe, that’ s how I would wear a dress over trousers too! I like some dress over trouser looks more than others. I think you’ve nailed it here. Xx
Well, thank you very much! I hope you had a good summer! But it’s not over yet, it’s still summer. Let’s enjoy!
I love this and I especially love the creativity of using the belt for a headband! I styled a dress over jeans a few weeks ago. I think it’s such a cool look, but people oftentimes do look twice!
Yes they do! Do we care? No! Not at all! Happy weekend Debbie!
I love the print of this dress and how you styled it! Such a chic look Nancy! The headband looks amazing too. Thanks for the link up!
Thanks Kathrine! Happy weekend!
I love your silky dress over jeans!
I have worn dresses like dusters but I haven’t tried wearing a dress as a tunic!
I need to shop my closet for this one!
Nancy this looks so chic! I love what you’ve done and your hair looks great like that!
Thank you very much Kellyann!
This is a really fun look. I love the pattern in the dress.
Thanks Julie! Enjoy your weekend!
Such a fun way to wear a short dress and I love how you wore the sash belt as a headband, great idea! 🙂
Thanks for the link up!
Hope that you have a great weekend ahead of you 🙂
Thanks Mica, have a great weekend!
The print of your dress is so pretty! This is such a chic look! Love your hair pulled back in a headband!

Thank you very much Jill!
Wonderful outfit! I love the dresses with the jeans.
What a great look! Love that pattern, so perfect for this time of the year!
Thank you very much!
I never thought about wearing a dress over trousers but i love how it looks! Great post! 🙂
great look and isn’t it funny everything we wore, did and watched in the 80’s and 90’s is cool again. We are the ever cool generation
Haha, yeah! We are the trendsetters! Thanks Linda!
It’s surprising to see you in jeans, even if a dress is over them! I really like the chain print dress. Another winner, my friend!
Yes it is! But you only see a small bit! Haha, thanks Kim!
You found the perfect way to wear that dress a different way and I love it! You look so happy and fun in these photos.
Thank you very much Lisa!
Such a fun outfit with a great vintage vibe!
OMG, Nancy! I LOVE this look! I wore dresses over jeans in the 90’s, too. We were trend setters even back then. These colors are so great on you, too. Loving those orange sandals, too. Have a great weekend, my friend!
Of course we were dear! Haha, thanks love!
Love this look on you Nancy! And Suzanne’s look that you featured!
I am so happy to finally have a fashion related post to link up with you!! Nancy, you wear everything so seemingly easy and well. I don’t know if it takes you a while to put a look together, but you always look so comfortable in your clothes and your skin. This is genius. That bold print is eye catching. Love the dress belted with the distressed denim. And those shoes!! Those shoes!!! Head to toe stylish.
Love Suzanne’s easy, breezy outfit, too. You gals are such inspiration!!
Wow! Thanks Leslie. That is a kind comment. I don’t think very long about a outfit. I grab what feels good to me without thinking if it looks okay! If I feel good in it and I love it that is enough for me!
This is such a modern way to style this Nancy. I’m totally going to copy this!!
I feel honored!
This looks great Nancy! I love the style on you and the orange heels are a great touch! Love the colors in your top and remember seeing this print alot last year.
Have a great weekend!
It looks perfect! And the shoes are just the right addition. I do love the print on you!
Thank you very much Mireille!
Love this look of a dress or long tunic over pants! So stylish and yet slimming.
What a fun look Nancy, love the orange slides too.
Fabulous color right!
I love your dress over trousers look! That chainlink shirtdress is just the cutest! The orange mules give the perfect pop of color!! Thanks for hosting, Nancy,
My pleasure Darlene!
I LOVE WEARING DRESSES OVER PANTS! SO CUTE NANCY!

I’m a big fan of dresses over pants. It’s a great fall-transitional look too!

I think I wouldn’t wear such a short dress as a single dress either…Might be the age! Love how you have styled it with the casual trainers and colourful shoes. It makes your outfit casual chic with a touch of summer and a touch of autumn. Great choices! Love, Lieske
Thank you very much Lieske!
I’ve always liked the dress over pants look – I feel it can look very chic and appropriate, as well as being stylish and interesting! This outfit looks stunning and mod on you, Nancy, thank you so much for sharing!!
The dress is a look I rather like and is a good way to wear dresses that are too short now. Your shirt dress does definately have an 80,s Versace vibe. Love the use of the tie as a headband. Many thanks for hosting Nancy.
Thank you very much Jill!
I am loving how you styled this dress over jeans, and the pop of color with your slides! <3
I hope you are having a great week so far!
Thanks Amber, have a great Sunday!
I think this dress works perfectly over jeans because of the shorter length. Love those fun shoes too!
Gorgeous!!! Love it XOXO Lisa
Thank you very much Lisa!
I wore that trend too back in the 90s, although I’m not sure it’s one I would wear again. I think I’m far too short to wear it stylishly. I do love your modern-day take on the trend, by wearing a tunic-like dress (that print is just lovely) with cropped jeans and those magnificent mules! xxx
Fabulous mules right! Love them too, what a color! Thanks Ann!
Pinned! Great look for late summer/autumn. Lise
Thank you very much!
You wear it extremely well, Nancy, love it
Thank you very much Anna!
I love it! Toevallig dat ik ook aan hetzelfde dacht!
Je hebt het wel mooier gestyled! ?
Helemaal niet! Jou setje is prachtig!
Love your dress over jeans look, Nancy. Great outfit, love the pop of orange too.
I just adore that print! So happy you linked up this gorgeousness with our new Style Six link up!
