Already so tired of short, sheer and sparkly — and there are still three weeks of holiday parties to go? Why not try something a little different? These stars have, and the results are terrific.

Downton Abbey‘s Michelle Dockery, Amy Adams and Zoë Saldana are just a few of the stars who have dabbled in a chic pants look lately (others include Jennifer Lawrence and Cate Blanchett). And all of them brought their own unique and sassy spin to the classy ensemble.

Dockery looked elegant (and super-festive) in her crimson Monique Lhuillier jumpsuit, which would be perfect for a dressy dinner or soiree, especially with a sparkly accessory or two. Adams took the menswear look to the next level in a Michael Kors pinstripe pantsuit. Hers was luncheon-ready with a button-up blouse, but a lingerie-inspired top would make it more party-appropriate. And finally, Zoë Saldana did Lanvin winter white in Miami, though a heavier weight fabric and a red lip would instantly translate this for colder temperatures.

Would you ever wear a pants look to a holiday party? Which is closest to your style?
