Trend to Try: Skirt Over a Dress

In the last week or two, I have noticed an emerging trend on the red carpet. I like to call it: the skirt-over-dress look.

A few weeks ago, Blake Lively attended a Godiva event in a white Valentino dress worn under a baby blue Valentino skirt, complete with white Louboutins (duh). Yesterday, Diane Kruger wore a print 10 Crosby Derek Lam look which featured a green printed “dress” under a B&W striped skirt. Her look was finished off with gorgeous yellow & jeweled Guiseppe Zanotti heels. The lookbook has this look exactly as Diane is wearing it, but I can’t figure out if it’s two pieces or one? Derek Lam’s Fall 2012 10 Crosby collection also features more of this skirt-over-dress look. Earlier this week model Karolina Kurkova donned a pre Fall 2012 Alexander Wang look (look 12) to Jay-Z’s Carnegie Hall performance. This look is definitely the most drastic of the three.

All these ladies look great, but I prefer Blake’s look. So what do you think of this trend? Will you be wearing a skirt over a dress anytime soon?
