Holiday party season is officially in full swing! I love to dress up as much as the next girl, but winter weather can be a major buzzkill when it comes to dressing up. There are some brutally cold days I just can’t fathom wearing a dress. This is where the perfect pair of fancy pants comes into play. I got this wide-legged pair last spring knowing they would come in handy for occasions like these. All I needed was a dressy top to make them party-appropriate. I found exactly what I was looking for in this sparkly turtleneck. Accessories here are key, too. I often find a pretty gold belt goes a long way to dressing up the simplest of ensembles. And for extra fun, old school glam vibes, a faux fur stole in a eye-catching color really adds something special. TLDR: all it takes is some sparkly and vibrant extras to make pants totally cocktail-appropriate.
P.S. These photos were taken at the St. Gregory Hotel and it’s restaurant, Tredici Enoteca (which has a fantastic brunch!) – isn’t the decor to die for? It always makes me want to redecorate my house!
