    She has a pretty smile but the outfit gives the look of a Bag Lady on the Streets of San Francisco!

    If she is a SF bag lady then I will trade you our NYC bag ladies anytime.

    Dress over jeans never quite looks right, and I don’t think she’s got it, either.

    She looks great!

    And, it would be fun to know where she got all the elements of her outfit. I love the coat and the red big-neck sweater topping it.

    ‘Course, it helps that she’s so young and has such a sweet smile.

    I agree, she looks pretty good, but I can’t help feeling that she’d look better if she just took the dress off and left the jeans and black coat.

    She’s got the right waifish look for the dress over jeans, but I don’t see that she is pulling it off any better than most who try.

    I generally hate this trend, but I agree that she does it better than most. I can look at her without wailing, “Why? For the love of God, WHYYYYY?”

    Dress over jeans can look amazing, but I think her dress is too long & everything is too baggy to be “stylish”. OTOH she’s so cute she could wear anything really. Plus it doesn’t look like she cares too much what we think, which goes a long way towards pulling it off.

    i love dresses over jeans! and i love her dress. she’s cute. I would wear it with the blue converse sneakers too.

    I love how she’s holding an extra hat, the exact replica of the one she’s wearing but in white. That’s so cute.

    She’s cute, but dress-over-jeans looks silly. Either garment would suffice.

    Ive still never seen anyone pull this off, nor for that matter, ever heard a guy praise the look.

    dress over jeans is like wearing socks and sandals.


    Ladies… please don’t!

    I think dress-over-jeans is just overkill. A dress, or jeans, but certainly not both.

    I think that dress over jeans only works if the jeans are Skinnies and the dress is short (anything below the knee and it looks like a hobo). Jackets should never be worn with this look, unless it is a short, tailored one.
    The chick in the pic should loose the turtle neck and coat and hem the dress.

    Glad to see so many people don’t like this. I don’t either. There’s just no reason for it. As early as grade school (around 1965) I didn’t like this. One of the girls came to school wearing pants under a dress – I think she was very poor. I didn’t exactly have the concept of socio-economic differences then, but she was somehow different, and I remember to this day that I felt kind of sad for her- that, and how awful that she had to wear pants under a dress to be warm enough…
