Take, for example, the fall 2022 runways
, where designers like Nanushka, Chloé
, and Givenchy
included dresses-over-pants ensembles in their lineups, and spring 2023
, for which New York-based wunderkind Peter Do featured the controversial trend en masse. Yet, they were worlds apart from the iterations popularized by Disney channel starlets. Chloé’s fall 2022
collection showcased neutral leather shirt dresses over wide-leg pants, while Nanushka
paired a jumpsuit with a pencil skirt, leaving just a tiny peek of the pants around the ankles. Then, there was Givenchy
, which opted to have models wear boot-pant hybrids with flirty, ruffled frocks.
