I’m an introvert. I struggle to find my social footing at big gatherings because there’s so many energy exchanges going on, 1:1 friendships feel more natural to me than being part of a large friend group. I love to focus on one person. At parties, I’m never the gregarious one. You could say clothes are my social crutch at parties. I’ll wear something hoping that the right person will take note of it and relate to me on some level. It’s good ‘ol animal kingdom behavior…sniffing out who is most similar to you, who is most likely to “get” you.
I have the best party pant recommendation for you today, something that’s guaranteed to get compliments and strike up a conversation. As I’ve written about before—I really love the idea of separates for occasion wear because dresses can feel so limiting/tired. Party pants are incredibly versatile. Wear them with a feather trim top and heels for a true holiday-NYE look, or wear them with a plain white t-shirt and flats for a cute errand outfit.
These pants are a shiny purple silk (I was so relieved to see the material composition was 100% silk) that just radiate festivity and exuberance. I don’t have a lot of purple in my closet. But I’ve found in the few days of styling them, they look very cool with pinks and reds. My sibling said the frills on the pant leg make them look like Lion Dance pants, which is just the cherry on top.
I styled them with a brownie scout green beret, red cashmere sweater and striped scarf to the farmer’s market.
Switching it up with kitten heels, pink ribbed socks, white tee and pink cashmere sweater tied around my shoulders like a scarf for lunch with my mom.
See how versatile? I am convinced they will be a part of my everyday outfit rotation well past holiday party season.
