During the upcoming holiday and party season many of us are looking for new stuff to wear. Here is a quick DIY idea for pants. Take a pair of basic trousers (or black jeans!) and sew a wide satin ribbon to each side right over the sideseam. The color does not have to be always black, but you can match the pant color or use something complitely different for a more striking effect like white, red or colden yellow (maybe to match your shoes or accessories). Instant tuxedo styled pants that look chic to any occation, day and night! And if you want your regular pants back, just carefully rip the satin ribbon out again.
