Tuesday Trend Day: Pants and a dress

Emma Watson’s Golden Globe outfit inspired this trend day post. She dared to wear pants with a dress. Her dress is Dior Couture

This trend was covered by The Cut in 2012 highlighting a similar outfit worn by Emma to the premiere of The Perks of Being a Wallflower. I think Emma Watson is a fashion icon who takes risks sometimes but always looks put together. Look through the slideshow below to see some of her fabulous outfits:

The black outfit is my favorite.

Refinery 29 styled several outfits in this post: http://www.refinery29.com/skirt-over-pants#slide-1

My favorite look:


The question is: do you want to try the trend and if so can you pull it off? I think you can with the right dress pant combo. I had fun picking out dresses that would look great over skinny pants. You could wear this type of outfit to work with flats or dress it up with heels and wear it to an event or party. If you are afraid to try wearing skinny pants, you can produce a similar looking outfit with leggings under a dress. Here are my shopping results with dresses and pants that might work together:
