Wearing dress over pants may not be your go-to combination when you have to put together an outfit with a short amount of time, but Happy Skin's co-founder Rissa Mananquil-Trillo will change your mind.

Here, Rissa starts with a no-brainer combination: a black turtleneck from Zalora and a pair of Joe Fresh jeans. She cleverly adds a third piece—a dress—which coincidentally elevates the look and aces the dress-over-pants trend at the same time! Rissa adds that the look was inspired of her desire to be comfortable and to be in "something [she] can move around in but also moves with [her]". She also describes her outfit as art, "it's a fusion of the timeless and unexpected."


If you're quite unsure whether a dress will go well with a pair of pants, opt for a piece in lightweight material and in the same color palette as your top. Just like what Rissa did, keep it seamless and sleek by slipping into a pair of heels that complements the rest of your ensemble. Throw on some simple jewelry, like a ring or statement earrings, to make the look dressier and fit for evening affairs. Rissa shares you can wear the tulle dress again paired "with leggings instead of jeans, a crisp white shirt and slip on some pompom embellished mules."
