We’re fairly rigid on the question of dresses over pants, i.e., no. Absolutely not. Not even for you, Emma Watson.

What a waste of two perfectly good items. The dress part is cute, if a little bit “cocktail waitress in the ’50s” and the pants are beautifully tailored. But why, Dior? WHY?
Maybe we’re being rigid. We have to admit, of all the “skirt over pants” looks we’ve seen, this one actually manages to look a little chic. But we can’t, kittens. Call us narrow-minded. Call us too conservative. It’s just not a look we can endorse. To quote one of our sainted grandmothers, “Shit or get off the pot, girl.” If you want to wear pants, wear pants. If you want to wear a dress, wear a dress. If you can’t make up your mind, FLIP A DAMN COIN.
Go ahead. Disagree if you must.
IN! This girl could make a shit sandwich look chic – and this proves it!
OUT! I can’t.
