The holidays are upon us, tis the season to be merry and go to parties! While everyone usually opts for dresses, I like to dare to be different and wear pants. Obviously, they are a warmer option and allow for more fluid, freestyle movements. You never know when you might hear Matthew Wilder’s “Break My Stride” and want to break out in a sick solo dance routine at a party. Just sayin’. Food for thought: this also happens to be my go to karaoke song. Oh yeah, it’s impressive. Anywho, today I give you my version of taking a day look into night by changing a few pieces. Switching out the jeans for leather pants and adding a punchy red shoe alter the look for nighttime. You could switch the blazer for a sequin cardi, if you have one. Don’t forget to add a bright red lip and some sparkly jewels to complete your look! Thanks a ton to the ever brilliant and gorgeous Samantha at Sam ipsa Loquitur and her Plaid Leopard Lumberbiker post for being the inspiration behind this look!
TIP: Don’t have time for a complete outfit change for a party? Pops of red can help change your look! Add red lips, shoes or a bag. Even all the above! Keeping extra jewels, like a necklace or arm candies, in your purse comes in handy too:)
