The palazzo pant trend is going down well with my more casual clients who prefer wearing pants to dresses, skirts and shorts when the weather is too warm for jeans. For those who don’t like to tuck and semi-tuck tops, three of the four examples here showcase untucked tops with palazzos.
Aside from the blue, the palettes are earthy, but feel free to choose any palette in solids or patterns. Sport palazzos at a length and level of volume that works best for you. Shorter or longer, fuller or less flared, it’s all good. Personally, I prefer the visual effect of extra long and full palazzos, but shorter lengths and less voluminous widths are more practical.
1. Earthy Ease
This is the easiest of the four to pull together. Combine a pair of palazzos with a tank or shell top and flat sandals, and you’re done. This is a great formula for short-waisted body types with long leg lines because of its torso-lengthening sensibility. Petites can absolutely wear the look if the top is not too long.
2. Crisp, Fluid & Sporty
This is a more preppy version and my favourite of the three. Combine palazzo pants that are structured at the waist with a fluid shirt or button-through blouse. Semi-tuck the front or side and scrunch the sleeves to give the outfit some shape or structure. Finish things off with white, tan, blush or metallic sneakers and statement earrings.
3. Structured Pretty
Combine a tailored peplum top with a pleated pair of palazzos. The fitted peplum adds ample structure to voluminous palazzos. Finish off the look with casual slides or mules and a straw or embroidered bag. The heels on the slides and the necklace add a dressy component to the look.
4. Boho Flair
Combine a boho-lite blouse or knitted top with a pair of palazzos. Keeping the top relatively short lengthens the leg line from the hips upward. The suede pumps here are on the dressier side, but the fabrics of the pants and top and straw bag keep things casual. The length and width of these palazzos can be treacherous but they’re awfully striking and dramatic in motion. Please walk slowly when you wear them this long and wide!
