Fancy Pants for the New Year

New Year’s Eve is almost here! Why not change up your usual New Year’s attire and opt for dress pants this year? I know dress pants have gotten a bad rap in years past as out-of-date, old-fashioned, grandmother-of-the-bride, old lady staples but they are making a modern comeback in a major way. Fancy Pants, as they are now called, offer extra drama you can’t get from jeans or slacks.
