Why You Should Ditch Your Little Black Dress


Balmain is known for embellished, thigh-grazing minidresses (remember Kim K’s bachelorette dress?) and while they made a few cameos on today’s runway, the collection instead focused on jaw-droppingly fabulous evening trousers. Whether they were rendered in pleated black satin, shimmering lurex or louder-than-life stripes, the flowing pants make a major impact. Why not break from convention and try one of these options with a blazer and statement jewelry for your next night out? We guarantee they will be present on the PFW after-party circuit.
