Tis the season for holiday soirees with friends, family, your latest crush and even your co-workers. It’s the time of year when you look in your closet and say “I have absolutely nothing to wear”, much less a cocktail dress for every single party. But donning a frock is so last year, especially with the season’s slew of embellished pants in luxe fabrics that are anything but tomboy chic. These sleek pieces are just as glam as a dress, albeit more comfortable for dancing the night away. And the best part? In these stylish ensembles, you won’t look like every other girl in the room.
Here, some of our favorite trendsetters and fashion rule breakers show us how they style their party pants all season long. Happy holidays and don’t forget to snap your own shot of your favorite party pants on Instagram, hashtag #FromWhereIStand and #7PartyPants and follow @7FAM for the chance to win $500 every week in December!
Annabelle Fleur of Viva Luxury is a snow queen – and we mean that in the best possible way. Her silver floral sequined denim shines against a cool blue topper and gorgeous gems while a geometric clutch adds just the right amount of color. This look is ideal for any fashion-forward party.
Emily Jackson of Ivory Lane rocks the perfect day to night look. She lets her navy jacquard denim and silver metallic heels take center stage by keeping the rest basic with a cozy knit and classic carryall. This is exactly what you wear when you have a holiday dinner with family right after work.
Jean Wang of Extra Petite knows that stretch sateen pants are the new LBD. These sleek skinnies are formal enough for any affair, especially when paired with a paisley top in an of-the-moment silhouette – the peplum. A faux fur collar and pointed heels add an element of glam, making this the ideal ensemble for an upscale cocktail shindig.
Here is what to wear to that really, really cool party at some obscure spot in Brooklyn or Silverlake. Rachel Marie of Jag Lever stands out in an it-girl getup with printed sateen pants in deep wine paired with a chiffon top. If you’re adventurous, take her style cues and add menswear-inspired extras. And don’t be scared to match your lip to your outfit – with this gorgeous hue, more is more.
