So you finally made plans for New Year's Eve, eh? Now the only hurdle left is figuring out exactly what to wear. Your options might seem limited to sparkly dresses, but trust us, you don't have to freeze while waiting for the ball to drop this year. In fact, if you really want to make a fashion-forward statement, this is the perfect time to whip out a great pair of pants. While all of your friends are posing in velvet slips and sequin minis, you can totally steal the show in trousers. Don't believe us? Just look at Amal Clooney.

The activist, attorney, and style star knows exactly how powerful a fancy pair of pants can be. Jaws literally hit the floor when she stepped out for the 2018 Met Gala in silky trousers by Richard Quinn. The dramatic top with a billowing tail really made the look.

Clooney's one-shoulder lace jumpsuit from a Giambattista Valli party is also giving us major fashion inspiration. Between the festive burgundy color and the sultry lace panels, this jumpsuit is definitely worth copying. Go ahead and channel Mrs. Clooney with this much more affordable lookalike from Nordstrom.
