Dance all night party pants

Give your LBD or favorite mini the night off and step into a pair of stylish (and comfy) pants. Luxe fabrics like velvet and lame offer up a dressy alternative to your usual holiday party ensemble. Pair yours with pumps and a fun top (think fringe or sequins) for a comfortable look that will have you rocking around the Christmas tree all night long.
