Sorry Dresses, But I'm Team Party Pants—These 6 Outfits Prove Why

Whether wearing dresses have gotten a little repetitive for events or you simply just want to switch things up, sporting pants for your next party will be your next favorite thing. Don't get us wrong, we love a good floor-length gown or a sparkly mini, but sometimes we just want to give them a break and wear something that'll allow us to move a bit more freely than usual. 

If you thought that pants weren’t quite fancy enough to wear for those dressier events, the looks below will change your mind. Now, more than ever, pants are making the rounds as the cool-girl favorite for occasions everywhere. Below, we found the best outfits from the fashion set that may fit any fancy occasion you might have on the calendar. Let them inspire your next ensembles, and then shop the looks to make them your own.

We love a good pantsuit for a formal occasion as much as anything. Play around with textures by opting for a velvet blazer and feather-trimmed pants.

Even during the summer, velvet will instantly dress up any look, taking it to a whole new level. Let your robe jacket be the focus of your look and wear simple black trousers.

For an outfit that can take you from happy hour to an evening out, a pair of high-waisted trousers with a dressy blouse will be the perfect combination. Switch out your loafers for a pair of pumps to make it more formal.

Nothing says ready to party like a statement-making set. Let the matching pieces be the hero of your ensemble and style it with minimal accessories.

An all-black outfit with a feathery top and relaxed trousers is fun outfit that'll garner many compliments.  Keep it polished with black and gold accessories.
