I have an important math equation I need to share with you today. Red + Velvet = The Most Incredible Christmas Pants Ever. (Still confused as to why these are the type of equations they don’t teach in algebra…)

Colored jeans are great, but I haven’t found a pair more festive than this velveteen set by Vineyard Vines! The moment I came across them, I knew I’d met a new favorite I’ll have around for Christmases to come.

Due to the skinny-jean cut, they’re easy to style, too! I paired them with this gorgeous cashmere button down and my favorite holiday heels for a party-ready look. I think they’d also be darling with these festive ballet flats and this blazer… an ensemble you could wear all throughout January and February.

Just for fun, I’ve rounded up a few more sets of fun, festive pants below. I hope everyone is getting in the Christmas spirit! How’s Christmas shopping going? Working on a few more gift guides for you procrastinators out there like me. :) Thanks for stopping by!

Love from Texas,
