I always get scared when I notice a pants trend, I like to wear trends a much as the next person but pants are my Achilles heel. I just find them so hard to wear on my body shape!
This season I bring you Party Pants. And as far as I can see there are no rules!
The general idea being wearing statement pants instead of a cocktail or party frock, like Alexa front row at House of Holland NYFW.
The trend is definitely towards printed and cropped pants like these Tory Burch ones
or these ladies snapped at NYFW by Harper's Bazaar
Metallics are also high on the hip list like these from Matthew Williamson Fall 2012 Ready To Wear collection
Leather gets a look in as well
Prada did some colour blocking
The Party Pants trend ran headlong into the mixed prints trend at Prada Fall 2012 RTW
Colour, texture or print and confidence seem to be key to this trend. It certainly isn't for beginners. So am I on board with the Party Pants?
I feel like I have mastered Level 1 - the coloured, cropped pant
For the next degree of difficulty I had a crack at these sequined pants. Yes sequined pants, there really was a party on my legs.
I haven't gone all out Party Pants but I am going to keep an eye out for a good tailored, printed, cropped pant - wish me luck! Are you going to be wearing Party Pants too?
