Fancy Pants

– By Nausheen Shah – 

Tis’ the season to be Fancy!  It seems the word “fancy” is always rolling off our tongues when the holidays roll around.  You may fancy a little bit of this or a little bit of that, but what you should really be fancying is a pair of “fancy pants.” Now we aren’t just talking about any kind of sparkly, leg hugging, tailored fabric.  We have our eyes set on topliners that can transition flawlessly from day to night.  Sport a sharp blazer and chiffon blouse with your pantaloons during the light of day, then ditch the jacket for a statement necklace and blazing stilettos to toast your evening festivities.

Lucky for us, these traffic stoppers come in all shapes, sizes and most importantly – textures.  Perhaps you prefer to don pearl embroidered fancy pants or maybe you are more of a dutchess satin, wide-leg-fancy-pants-kind-of-girl.  Either way, we have a slew of top picks that will keep you all shiny and new this season.
