I can’t believe it, but I finally got myself a pair of palazzo pants. This is a trend I’ve been on the fence about for a while now, but after seeing some of the ones they had at Forever 21, I knew I had to have a pair! I think the reason why I didn’t jump on the palazzo pants bandwagon earlier was because some of them really do look tacky. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of wearing bold colors and patterns, but I have my limits. Sometimes it blows my mind how much fashion is like a revolving door…what goes around really does come back around. I remember seeing pictures of my mother and aunts wearing pants just like these in the 1970s and here we are in 2014 and they’re popular again. Amazing huh?
As far as tips for wearing palazzo pants go…KEEP IT SIMPLE! The print on these pants are bold enough, you don’t need anything beyond a solid color on top and even then I’d make it a light color. Also, be sure to find a pair that hang flatteringly on your hips. There’s nothing worse than wearing pants that fit too tight that continuously bunch up when you walk…NOT attractive. When it comes to what kind of shoes to wear, I say either a flat or high heel are appropriate depending on what you’re doing. I really like the idea of both…definitely flat shoes for a beach vacation or leisure day, and then heels when you’re ready to dress them up a bit.
Here’s my look:

I’m in love with these pants! The pattern one these is much less busy than some of the other ones I’ve seen, otherwise I’m not so sure I would have gotten them. They’re also SUPER comfy! I’m actually surprised that I’ve been wearing crop tops too because that is so unlike me.
Are any of you going to be rocking the palazzo pants trend this summer?
Until next time!
