It's not even December yet, and I've already exhausted my (admittedly modest) wardrobe of holiday-ready party dresses. Speaking of dresses, I'm sick of them, which is why I'm falling so hard for these slim-cut velvet trousers from Dutch label Day Birger et Mikkelsen.
The velvet fabric coupled with a satin waistband makes them a plenty appropriate -- not to mention, a novel -- choice for dressy holiday parties, and the slim cut means I'll be able to wear them with my favorite oversized sweaters on more casual days.
The pants are currently sold out in my size on Net-a-Porter, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed they'll go back in stock, because I don't want to go through the holiday season without them.
Day Birger et Mikkelsen velvet pants, $300, available at Net-a-Porter.
