When it comes to holiday dressing, my fellow editors often discuss which dresses they have their eyes on. I, on the other hand, quickly jump in with all the pants I'm considering. If you're like me, you pretty much live in some form of pants, with nary a dress or skirt in sight. I've only worn pants to weddings and even wore a bridal jumpsuit to my own nuptials. Thankfully, the past few years have brought about some great styles that fit right in for all sorts of festivities.
There are a couple of outfits with pants that I'm considering wearing to my upcoming holiday parties. One idea for an effortless ensemble is to pair a white blouse with black pants, making sure that either the shirt or the pants have an interesting detail. Another alternative is to throw on a going-out top with metallic detailing and styling it with a more straightforward style like slim leather pants. As for how to complete these outfits, any of these options go great with oversize earrings, a sleek mini bag, and statement boots.
I rounded up some of the most inspiring pant outfits from my Instagram favorites that are perfect for your next holiday party. From minimalist styling to outstanding head-turning looks, I found a little something to fit just about every personal style.
