Flared pants are making a comeback. Personally, I find the trend super cute, but definitely not timeless. Hence why the bell bottoms movement becomes popular for a couple years or so every few decades… I much prefer a beautiful classic wide pant cut, like the palazzo pant. They’ve been consistently in style, as well tailored, structured pieces tend to be (cue the trench and wrap dress).
If you’ve been hesitant about pulling the trigger on a pair of these bad boys, here are just a few reasons why palazzo pants are a great investment for any wardrobe. Luckily for us, there’s no need to break the bank for the perfect pair either! They are:
Rarely can pants look good on all types of booty! You can style a fabulous pair of palazzo pants with a simple white blouse for work, or an intricate crop top to take the look from professional to modern. You can also throw on your palazzo pants with a vintage concert t-shirt for a very casual off duty look.
When you dress comfortably, you feel more at ease and self-assured. These babies are comfortable AND flattering. The flowy fabric adds a beautiful element of femininity but also gives you the movement freedom of basically being naked. If there’s ever a time to be caught in a Capoeira flash mob it would be in a pair of palazzo pants.
Midriff cleavage is quickly becoming ‘our favourite’ kind of sexy twist again. There are tons of trendy culotte and crop top sets in stores right now. However, a well tailored pair of palazzo pants will always be in style, even after all the ab action. Choose a classic structured pant in a fabric you love for a timeless fashion investment that won’t have you cringing 2 years later and thinking, “what on earth was I smoking?!”.
As a reformed shopaholic, I try to be thoughtful about my purchases. Even so, there was no hesitation on grabbing this matching boohoo.com set!
