Cheap Thrill: Festive Lace-Trimmed Trousers

At the beginning of every week at the Cut, we’re highlighting one great purchase that won’t take up your whole paycheck. If you’re looking for something to splurge on instead, check back every Friday for an item that’s absolutely worth eating ramen noodles for the rest of eternity.

The hemline of a pair of pants has gotten increasingly eccentric since last spring, with embroidered cuffs at Gucci and flouncy bottoms at Opening Ceremony. The trend of dropped, ripped, and embellished hems doesn’t look like it’s going anywhere. Slip on a pair of white boots to draw even more attention to the delicate lace detail. If you have a holiday function (or several) to attend, these are the perfect alternative to that festive dress you were planning to wear on repeat.
