Palazzo Pants are women’s long trousers, cut with a loose, extremely wide leg that flares out from the waist. Which makes it different from bell bottoms pants that flare out from the knees. The best thing about palazzo pants and the reason that they are so popular and loved is that they provide you with complete freedom of movement and flexibility.
If you are resident in Nigeria, you will agree with me that the heat has not been fair on us in recent time. Especially if you reside in the Northern Nigeria like Abuja, then you will understand me. It is not even summer but this is what we find ourselves dealing with. Hence, the need to ensure you include light clothing to your wardrobe.
Palazzo Pants fall into this category of light clothing. It is one of those retro trend that has made a comeback and a lot of style bloggers have styled it in different ways. In this post, I have collaborated with another beautiful style blogger PrincessAudu on how to style this pants. Sarah and I, are two different sized persons which makes this collaboration all the more interesting.
I have owned quite a number of palazzo pants over the last one year but I have always struggle with how to style it. Before this collaboration, I had my pants but I kept trying with almost all the tops I owned. While I was doing all these, I was concerned about wearing an outfit that would hide different parts of my body and at the same time finding a piece that will fit perfectly.
TIPS TO STYLING PALAZZO PANTS
#1: Choose comfortable tops to match it
It does not matter how your clothes look or fit, it is about how comfortable you are. I decided to settle for my off shoulder top and accentuate my waist with a belt. I was super comfy and I had zero worries about how I looked. Plus, I could show off my
not sexy shoulders.
#2: Palazzo Pants is not only for Tall Women
One of the biggest myth associated with wearing palazzo pants is that it is not for short or petite women. But here I am, 5 feet 4 inches wearing one and leaving you to be the judge. If you are not one of the ‘tall women’, go with something that is shorter in length and with just the right hem-line like PrincessAudu did here.
#3: Choose the right waist cut
Princess Audu definitely knows how to wear a clothe right. She knows her body type, which makes it easy for her to pair her pants with this burgundy top that sit just right atop her pants revealing her slim waistline.
#4: For a formal palazzo, keep the colors down
You definitely would not want to dress to the office looking like me but Sarah can definitely get an award as the best dressed for the day if she decided to dress like this to work. You can however choose my style if you are just having a date with the girls or with your partner.
#5: Do not restrict yourself to matching patterns
Years ago, if someone had shown me a picture of someone wearing stripes and floral, I would have screamed ‘Fashion Police’. Today, fashion has become a different story. It is about how you wear it, how you carry yourself, how very comfortable you are and how you allow others see you.Fashion you can buy, but style you possess. The key to style is learning who you are, which takes years. There's no how-to road map to style. It's about self expression and, above all, attitude. —Iris Apfel Click To Tweet
