When you're looking for a fancy, formal outfit centered on pants, most people immediately think of a tuxedo-which can be incredibly elegant (see YSL's Le Smoking for reference)-but I actually have a different suggestion: a jumpsuit! There are so many flattering and sophisticated jumpsuits on the market right now, ranging from slim, long-sleeve iterations to feminine, one-shoulder styles to understated, sleeveless options perfect for the minimalists out there. If you pick something that's pretty sleek, you'll definitely be dressed up enough for the occasion. From there, you can accessorize with equally chic shoes, like pointy pumps in black patent leather, or you can add some glamour with black and gold platforms, crystal-embellished sandals, or something that's a little glittery. Finally, add some sparkle via a stunning clutch in champagne or light bronze and some statement earrings. You can wear an exaggerated stud or drop earring; either option will add a touch of femininity and personality to your final look!
