Spring 2012 Fashion Week Trends: Dresses Over Pants

New York Fashion Week Trend: Would You Wear a Dress Over Pants?

While sweet sundresses have their place on the Spring 2012 runways, another way to wear breezy frocks has emerged. Dresses are getting some sportier styling, layered over flowy pants, slick leather pants, and everything in between. We spotted the looks at Rag & Bone, Victoria Beckham, and Helmut Lang — and we have to say, we're not afraid to try it. Tell us, what do you think of dresses over pants — would you rock the trend?

I really like the look. OMG...how did that middle woman get to be a model? What have they done to her face and ears? Ugh.

I've never worn a dress over pants. But, that third outfit looks good. The flowy, lightweight dress complements the form-fitting pants.

I can't say I would. I was surprised to see this trend back again so soon. This was happening 8-10 years ago, if my memory serves me right.
