Dress over jeans - is that look really back?

Last saw it on Trinny and Susannah aeons ago.

Trinny still does this, not jeans but trousers.
I loved the look but wouldn't do it now. Plus it was more of a summer time thing for me.

How can a dress over trousers be a summer thing? Don’t you bake under the layers?!

No. Our summers are more like autumn. Obviously when we got a day over 16 degrees I didn't do it grin
I used to wear white wode leg trousers under a dress. Thinking back it probably wasn't my best fashion moment.
Where have you seen this making a come back?

Mainly Pinterest, Maud, and a blog but I can't remember which ...

Report here that dresses over denim 'seen in abundance' at London Fashion Week. As this look has never gone away for me I'm very pleased.

Just popping in to say that lots of Muslim women do this in particular (whether or not they cover their hair) so I think it's becoming a more common sight in general. My mam does it all the time when she's dressing up a bit for something.

It went away? Ssssh, my wardrobe doesn't that. I've worn dresses over jeans and trousers for years.

Just got a Joe Browns catalogue and they're selling trouser-skirt combo things.. but everything in there looks a bit 2000-ish to me. Too recent to be revisited! still coming to terms with young people wearing my Vans

I like a dress over leggings or skinnies but some of the combos on that link are truly hiddeous.

I also didn't know it had gone away. Quite pleased - I'm not often on trend! grin
