Pants have always been good to us. They keep us warm when the temps drop and they also happen to be a relatively fuss-free part of our wardrobes. Yet, somehow when it’s time to hit the town, they don’t always feel as fun as their flirtier counterparts, dresses and skirts. Well, we’re here to debunk that sartorial myth.
Thanks to a mix of rich fabrics, peppy prints, and super-diverse silhouettes, this season is offering up loads of stylish, scene-stealing trousers that could easily hold their own against any cocktail frock. From sequin, leather, lace, and jacquard embellishments to on-trend cuts ranging from skinny to palazzo, these 13 perfect pairs have everything it takes to be the toast of the town. Move over, LBD — these bottoms are in it to win it.
