Here’s How to Wear Pants to a Party

Richard Wright

It's that time again. Time to a firm up a solid holiday-party outfit. Sure, you could throw on the little lace something that's occupied your closet for a decade. Or! You could go all out in a pair of sequined pants. To keep you from spiraling into a how-do-I-wear-that? meltdown, we've rounded up seven fun, unexpected, totally baller outfit ideas.

MIX SPARKLES WITH SWEATERS

It's all about mixing textures, folks. Go for the unexpected in a pair of shimmery trousers, a relaxed knit sweater and a crisp blazer.

PAIR METALLIC PANTS WITH SILKY TOPS

Really, anything shiny wins. Temper the rest of the outfit with a dark draped blouse and minimal heels.

ADD A POP OF SPARKLE TO ALL WHITE

If your style is more about shine in moderation, go for an ethereal monochromatic look. Say, white palazzo pants and a half-tucked slouchy sweater, topped off with a punchy clutch.

COUPLE PLAID WITH FAUX FUR

Plaid is rad. Especially when topped with the coziest-ever coat and accented by sharp patent-leather heels. 

FancyPants Culottes

GIVE CULOTTES A CHANCE

Is that a skirt?! Nope. Keep it comfy with this style--just balance it with a little sparkle up top and a flash of color on the bottom.

SUIT UP

Borrow from the boys. Go bold. Own the party.

OR (JUMP)SUIT UP

An entrance-making one-piece is never not a good idea. This little number is by Valentino (sigh), but anything with a sleek cut and a pop of color works.
