Evening pants are particularly in demand during the holiday office party season, for cruise and resort vacations, and for going out to night clubs. While most mother-of-the brides and other special wedding guests prefer dresses and evening suits, some prefer evening pantsuits.  Classic styles that are perennial favorites are chiffon palazzo pant styles, stretch velvets, and beaded sets. Black is a staple favorite with other colors trending in and out of style. Some classic black career pant styles can double for evening wear if they are made of finer fabrics such as silk.

Jumpsuits and evening pantsuits are organized under the "dresses" tab at many on-line retailers.

Some styles are as formal as cocktail dresses, although usually are more in keeping with the level of formality of social occasion dresses.  Jumpsuits with beading and sequin embellishments are also evening choices. Many women like evening pants because different looks can be achieved through exchanging evening tops, and mixing and matching with tops and jackets worn with evening skirts, as well.

The holiday season is when more diverse pant styles, and those with a trendier vibe tend to become available, including styles such as velvet, metallic, or sequin leggings.
