The 2015 awards season officially kicked off last night with the People's Choice Awards. This event proved that the PCA's aren't your typical ballgown affair. More edgy, fashion-forward choices took center stage. Seeing several stars defer dresses for trousers as a major trend was a refreshing departure.
Portia de Rossi chose a Zuhair Murad jumpsuit in a striking cobalt color with an illusion deep v neckline and cutouts. Her pointy-toe pumps mirror the graphic lines of the top.
Monica Potter's black DVF jumpsuit had a more easy feel with pockets and a relaxed fit in the pants. Her loose ponytail allowed the halter neckline to be featured.
Ellen Pompeo's Elie Saab jumpsuit evoked romance with blush tones and beautifully intricate lace insets. She balanced this with a modern updo and boxy clutch in the color of the year, marsala.
Bella Thorne was the fashion winner of the night in her ebony Armani pantsuit, featuring a silk lapel. Impeccable tailoring is what really put her look at the head of the pants pack on the red carpet.
Whether you're going for a modern, relaxed, romantic or sexy look, think outside of the dress for your next soiree. It's clear to see that the right fit makes all the difference when choosing a pantsuit or jumpsuit. Also note that minimal jewelry and a careful choice in shoes, bag and hairstyle can make a big impact. Don't be afraid to jump(suit) into the new year!
