There are two words capable of striking fear into even the most stylish, sartorially brave women: harem pants. 

The oddball garment appears to act without reason or rhyme: The pants fall as they wish on the body, giving little care to how misshapen they make your thighs look or how they leave your ankles awkwardly uncovered. But if there is one person capable of taming the trouser beast, it's Rose Byrne. Remember, friends, this is the woman who wore a sparkly jumpsuit to the SAG Awards

At a preview of "You Can't Take It With You" on Broadway, Byrne paired burgundy printed harem pants with a loose, black silk tank and blazer. It definitely falls onto the "Art Teacher Cool" end of spectrum, but with her pointed toe pumps and single gold bangle, it's also fancy enough to wear to work, cocktails or a date. 

So, should you find yourself in the fancy pants aisle without guidance, look up this picture of Byrne on your phone and let her lead the way to pants perfection.
