Why Wear a Dress When You Can Wear a Dress AND Pants?
Welcome to "Who Won Fashion Today," where we award the boldest, best dressed person of the day. Winning fashion doesn't necessarily mean you're wearing the most expensive, trendiest, or prettiest dress. Rather, we reward risk-takers—those that stay true to their personal style and make us go, "Now THAT is a LEWK.”
At last night's premiere of FX Network's Feud: Bette and Joan, Kiernan Shipka wore a fall 2017 Oscar de la Renta dress over matching pants that had us going, "Uh oh. Now every time we buy a dress, we'll have to by matching pants. Sorry, bank account." 3 InStyle Editors Reveal How to Wear a Dress Over Pants
