Palazzo Pants: The Ultimate Comfort

Updated: May 20

What exactly are Palazzo pants? They are women's pants that are cut with a loose, extremely wide leg that flares out from the waist. The word "Palazzo" is Italian for palace and according to Cartner-Morley "the palazzo pant evokes the grandeur of [vacationing] at a palace". The perfect pant for warmer weather indeed! Depending on the look you are going for there are palazzo pants with a very generous cut that can make them appear to be a loose-fitting maxi skirt or there are palazzo pants that flare from the hip rather than the waist. Of course, selecting the right fit to compliment your silhouette is key to the perfect outfit. Taller women can wear the loose fitting style with confidence however if you are shorter or curvier, select styles that aren't too loose and pair with a form fitting top to give a visual balance. Also, you can opt for light layering for a more relaxed feel.

This two piece set is from Oh Polly The crop top has a scoop neckline and ruched detail throughout. The high waist palazzo pant has a flowing wide leg with an elasticated waistband to cinch in the stomach. When I walk, the legs swirl around me giving me such a graceful flare. I love this!

I kept my jewelry and accessories to a minimum. My gold hoop earrings and gold watch are from KnowStyleUSA My pink snake skin mini purse is from Babes and Felines Can we talk about these beautiful pink and gold sunglasses? They are from Diamond Luxe Dolls another local gem based in Georgia that I will be ordering from again.
