Some runway trends are impossible to pull off, but it turns out, the notorious dress over pants look isn't one of them. Once I found the perfect texture, length, silhouette, and color (celadon!), all I needed was a pair of slim-fit bottoms, like these trusty black skinny jeans, and I was ready for Tommy Ton! Finishing with leopard print booties added an unexpected twist. Now, I'm gearing up to try the eight other "difficult" ensembles, because who doesn't like a little sartorial challenge?
