embellished peg trousers X striped flutter top

When it comes to dressier events, most of us will reach for dresses. I do most of the time. The thought of wearing pants for parties barely enters my mind. I am not sure if this is partly because I never saw my mom wear anything other than dresses for any events, I am bias to skirts and dresses to begin with or is it simply because the repertory of dressy pants is rather small? Maybe all of the above. Finding well fitting pants is a challenge no matter your size; let alone statement pieces. A couple of weeks ago I came across this delicate pair of pink pants and I had to have them. The fabric has great consistency and it’s thick enough to be worn on cooler autumn days. I love the chic pencil design and the gold embellished details on both pockets elevate the pants to cocktail parties or business casual corporate events.

I chose to pair these pants with a loose flute top for a little contrast. This top sold out at lightning speed online, however you might still get lucky at one of your local Banana Republic stores. I did find a couple very similar ones HERE and HERE.

What are your thoughts on wearing pants to dressy events?

    Very very poised and ladylike :) The pants are to-die-for, I would love them, paired with a relaxed white shirt but I believe they only go with a certain body type/ weight. Which is not mine, currently LOL.
    However, the top is absolutely gorgeous and makes up for another reason to get to Banana Republic these days (haven’t gotten there yet.

    I always think of dresses for dressier events as well. But these pants would be perfect too! I love the details on the pockets. I’ll have to pop into Topshop this afternoon and look at pants! 😉
