Fall Fashion Is Going To All About These Fancy Pants Trends


When you think about getting a little fancy during colder months, what types of materials, textures, or silhouettes come to mind? Perhaps suiting? What about silk? Leather? A rich print? Fall 2019 pants trends have all of those bases covered and more, so if you were about to say ground-grazing dresses then it's time to rethink your approach to dressed up style. While jeans will obviously always be a mainstay on runways no matter what time of the year it is, not a single one of the standout pants trends had to do with denim. Instead, they centered on luxe fabrics and patterns that would be perfect for any night out on the town, from cocktail hour to black tie soiree.

From dark Victorian-inspired florals to super glossy satins, jewel tone leathers to crisp suiting trousers, the range of pants that took over at fashion week constituted a gorgeous bouquet of wearable luxury. Pair any style with a graphic tee for something more casual, or top it off with a structured blouse or embellished crop top for a more formal look. No matter how you wear them, they're sure to turn heads. Check out the trends in full below and decide which one you want to become your signature fall look.
