I really can’t stop thinking about what I want to wear for the holidays, not the I have that many events to go to; it’s just that I love any occasion to get fancy! Most people automatically think dresses are necessary for parties, but it’s just as easy to get in the holiday spirit while wearing a pair of pants or trousers. Whether you are cooking, decorating, running after kids, or just plain want to be more comfortable it’s still possible to look effortless and fabulous in trousers.
This year we are breaking away a bit from the skinny trend and veering more towards 70s style wide leg and palazzo pants, which instantly adds a touch of glamour and sass to any outfit. We are also seeing more trousers available in different colors and fabrics than just your basic black; that little bit of something unexpected in your wardrobe will make it even easier for you to stand out at your holiday party!
Check out some of my top picks of women’s trousers from Marisota for holiday wear.
For the classic wide leg trouser look check out these styles:
You could pair any of these with a lacy top and pearls or a shiny jewel tone tunic with a wide or a chain belt over it. Or go full for the full retro look with a cute pussybow blouse. Add a pair of metallic silver or gold heels for extra shine!
For those obsessed with the skinny look, try these options:
These slim leg trousers are perfect if you want to add a little edge to your holiday wear while still looking sophisticated. Wear them with a sequins tank top and a fitted blazer or cropped jacket. These would also will still make you look cool when you get invited to an infamous ugly sweater party.
Velour or velvet leggings are probably one of my favorite things in the world right now. Not going to lie, I was a little apprehensive about this trend at first; I though they might get way to hot. But I gave them a try and I was in heaven! They add a simple are of luxury while still being as comfortable as your favorite pair of pajama pants!
Skinny leg pants are also a good choice because they look great with any kind of shoes. Sparkly flats, stilettos, ballet slippers, even if it’s snowing you can still slip a pair of cute boots over them and look awesome.
For those with a more daring sense of style, try these printed pants from Marisota.
I am all about those grey and black tapered trousers. The peacock feather pattern is so unique, they would be sure to get a ton of admirers Wear these with a classic pair of booties and complimenting top then add your sparkle in accessories for a completely unexpected yet classy holiday look.
Another trend I am seeing everywhere lately is mesh. Although I haven’t tried it yet, it always seems to catch my eye.
I think this style of trouser gives off such an air of old Hollywood and would look perfect with some sequined accessories and maybe even retro fascinator headband or hat.
So will you be trying any new trends in trousers this holiday season? How will you dressing up a pair of pants?
