Rad Or Bad: Would You Wear A Dress Over Pants?

skirt-over-pants-fall-2010-1
We're big fans of pants here at the office (seriously, there's nothin' like 'em!), and don't get us started on how much we like skirts and dresses (they're the best, really!), but when you combo the two, the beast they create is something straight out of our '90s nightmares. Perhaps designers this season have been poking around our dream journals, because there were multiple instances of the skirt-over-pants combo. But coming from respectable, head-screwed-on-all-the-way designers like Richard Chai, Rag & Bone, Roksanda Ilincic, and Richard Nicoll, the look might not be as crazy as we think it is. But what say you, fashion daredevils? Should we just give up and let the trend happen, or should we just wear pants and just wear skirts, and make sure that nary the twain shall meet?
