How to Wear Palazzo Pants – 5 Kick-Ass Tips

by Kate Franco on May 7, 2014 · 1 comment

how to wear palazzo pantsY’all know I love a good pair of printed palazzo pants — and apparently I REALLY like to pair them with denim and basic whites. In accordance with my guiding principle that somehow “everything goes together,” this outfit is well, a little bit of everything. I’m not mad at it.

But onto more pressing matters than how I feel about my clothes…

Recently I’ve seen a lot of people asking how to wear palazzo pants, so I thought I’d put together some of my thoughts for easy {and awesome!} styling.

How to Wear Palazzo Pants {5 kick-ass tips}

how to wear palazzo pants tip #1: Always elongate. A high waist and heels, and your legs are instantly a mile long.

1. Elongate, Elongate, Elongate

The trick with a trend that, well, makes you look WIDE {palazzo pants = wide leg pants, ahem} is to elongate as much as possible. Don’t think twice. Go for a high waist and heels every time and you won’t be sorry.

2. Lightweight Fabrics for the Win

Wearing palazzo pants made of a lightweight fabric like chiffon is 1. great for summer but 2. has an airy quality about it that won’t weigh you down or make you feel frumpy. Instead you’ll feel happy, light and bohemian goddess-chic. You’ll glide through the day. True story.

3. Prints, Please

Seriously, though! Personal opinion, but plain palazzo pants are maybe too easily confused with your basic wide leg trouser or work slacks. Snooze-fest! Spice it up with a print or pattern. If monochrome or basic is more your style, stick with it, but I promise you’ll be surprised by how FUN wearing a loud print can be!
how to wear palazzo pants tip #4: balance it out with layers on top

 4. Layers up Top

Balance out your look with a couple of layers on top. But make sure you keep it slim, and not too bulky {see #5}.

5. Keepin’ it Slim

Tucking in your shirt will show off the high waist AND flatter your figure. Wearing something more body-conscious {like a tank top or body suit — yes, I am seriously recommending a body suit} up top is also a great choice. The slim fit will offset the voluminous nature of the pants and show off the curves. Yes, please!
