The Fashion industry has been trying for years to tear us away from skinny jeans towards wide legged, palazzo trousers. This Spring it looks like they are finally getting their way as we see this trend hitting the streets big time!
Perhaps it’s also a reflection of the current move towards home and comfy wear. This dressy pant style really fits so many requirements. They can be just as comfy as sweat pants, however look much more stylish.
There are however a few simple tricks to making the most out of your palazzo pants outfit. Keep on reading for “5 Top Tricks to Styling Palazzo Pants”.
5 Top Tricks to Styling Palazzo Pants
Whilst the 7/8 length for pants is still a top trend, when it comes to palazzo pants these should be worn as long as possible. The longer length will also make your legs seem longer. Especially if the pants are high waisted. Mine are not so high, they sit just top of the hips but imagine if they were high waisted. The legs would appear even longer!
2. Tuck in
Wear your top tucked into the trousers – at least at the front. Palazzo pants are made to rule the outfit and this way you still let them have the main say to your look.
3. Simple top
Team your palazzo pants with simple slimline tops. The pants are so floaty that it’s good to bring the whole look back to perspective with a simple slim t-shirt.
4. Team with a longer blazer or jacket.
Especially important if you have wide hips. Whatever you do make sure that the jacket or blazer worn over your palazzo pants covers the widest part of your body. This will elongate the whole look.
5. Go for print
There are also plenty of plain palazzo pants available. However if you want to get the most out of your pants and have a real statement effect, choose a lovely print. It takes some courage at first.
I always find myself thinking I won’t get much wear out of them if I choose a print. Yet history has proven that these bold prints become fabulous statement pieces in my wardrobe for years to come. Important is that you choose both a print and colour you love!
