If you’re bored of wearing the same old LBD to every cocktail party, we’ve got a better option. I’m talking about the pant suit. It might have got the tag of being stuffy corporate wear for the longest time but off late it’s got a glamorous make over. In fact, plenty of celebs have been snapped wearing this trend such as Sonakshi Sinha, Freida Pinto and Huma Qureshi.

So how exactly do you style this look?

Lesson 1: Keep it Simple

A good tailored piece is all you need and that’s what you gotta make shine. Don’t add extra accessories – such as bracelets and chunky necklaces. A cocktail ring and a clutch are all you need.

Lesson 2: Stick to one colour to make you look slimmer

Lesson 3: Show off those pins
