Where were you when the dress-over-pants trend took over in the early 2000s?

This controversial trend has been a debate for decades with some finding it confusing and weird while others are just obsessed with it.

Stars like Jessica Alba, Anne Hathaway, Paris Hilton and more stepped out in this look numerous times. This trend is now back and seems to be here to stay.

One of the most memorable looks is of Anne Hathaway in a cute pink dress and flared jeans when she attended the premier of her movie Ella Enchanted.

This trend has evolved over the years of course and this updated style has become quite chic – and fabulous we must say.
