Embellished pants are your ticket to pulling off this season’s hottest looks. They’re especially great for creating a contemporary evening look. Embellished pants look smokin’ when paired with a slinky cami or blouse and killer heels. Check out the following designer and chain store takes on embellished pants and let us know what you think of this evening-wear trend!
Ease into the trend with these lightly embellished pants. By J.Crew, these pants feature delicate sequin bow embellishments to the front and back. While a designer pair like these can cost you anywhere between $200 and $500, you could create your own pair by adding some embellishments to a plain pair of pants. Create a fresh night time look by teaming such pants with a silky cream blouse, strappy heels, and compact clutch.
Everyone from D&G to Topshop are doing the sequin embellished pant this season. While it may seem a bit over-the-top at first, the key to making this look work is to keep the rest of your outfit fairly pared back. Team a pair of sequined pants with a lightweight tank top, strappy heels, and small side bag for a fresh and funky take on evening trends.
Lace is a favourite when it comes to evening-wear trends. Instead of a pretty lace dress, try a striking pair of lace embellished pants instead. While Stella McCartney sells her lace embellished pants for a hefty price tag you can get much more affordable versions from stores such as Topshop and Free People, or a lace-trimmed version from Forever 21.
Velvet is such a lush, luxe fabric and just when you though it couldn’t get more decadent, we throw some embellishment into the mix. These particular Balmain pants cost a whopping $7000 but you can get much more affordable styles from 7 for All Mankind and Topshop. Try teaming such embellished pants with a plain top and simple black pumps.
If all over embellishments aren’t your thing, try a tuxedo-inspired design instead. Look out for pants with embellished strips down the sides. These Michael Kors pants feature gold acetate embellished sides which give off the appearance of chain links. Since the embellishments here are much more subtle, you can get a bit more ‘out there’ with the rest of your outfit.
Add some razzle dazzle to your evening look with a pair of beaded pants. Team these pants with a slinky cami and metallic heels for an elegant evening look. Choose a wide legged style like these Alberta Ferretti pants for a glamorous take on the trend. For a more budget-friendly buy, try hitting up costume and vintage stores for a truly unique find.
So the last thing you’d be caught dead in at a dinner party is sweatpants, but what if they were given an embellished twist? Embellished sequin sweatpants from 3.1 Phillip Lim, Free People, and Modcloth make this idea seem much more appealing and evening-wear appropriate. Team with with a killer heel, plain tank top, and structured blazer to really make this look work.
I know, I know, leggings are not pants! But for a more casual, party-friendly take on the embellished pants trend, why not give them a go? ASOS and Topshop stock a great range of embellished leggings. Team them with a flowing tunic or long-line blouse, heeled shoes, and a small across-body bag for a fresh look.
Whether you spend a little or a lot, embellished pants are guaranteed to amp up your evening-wear look. What do you think of the embellished pant as evening-wear? Would you dare to wear these embellished pants?
