Embellished Pants Like Jenna Lyons Wears

Jenna Lyons's Fancy Pants Secret

Every week, we bring you the best shoppable fashion and lifestyle stories from our partner Lifestyle Mirror. Today, we're sharing Taylor Davies's post of how to wear embellished pants.

Time to give your little black dress a break. And that little sequin dress, too. In fact, all your sexy little dresses can spend a bit more time on the hanger this holiday season. Instead, reach for one of our favorite winter trends—fancy pants! Whether silky and slinky or embellished and structured, we love this masculine-meets-feminine trend.

The trickiest part of the fancy pants trend is selecting the perfect top to go with them. We rely on one trusty trick: tight on top means loose on the bottom, and vice versa. This ensures balance—and keeps you from looking like you're swimming in your clothes. Same goes for embellishment and detail, use one piece as the focus and let the other sing backup.

For inspiration, look to glamorous tomboy style icons like Jenna Lyons, who always pairs her fancy pants with a good heel and a bold red lip. From sequin-covered sweatpants (yes!) to silky floral track pants and jacquard trousers, we can hardly decide which we like best. The good news? There's no need — you can find your perfect pair of fancy pants at every price from $25 to $2500, and the accompanying top, too.
