• Trend to Try: Palazzo Pants

    24 July, 2014 0 Comment

     

    Have you noticed the palazzo pants trend that has attracted the eye of notable celebs and swept the streets? If you have yet to jump on the band wagon, you will soon because palazzo pants are super, super comfortable. The loose, wide-legged pants allow your legs to breathe while looking chic! Just take a look at how some of the celebs have made the new trend their own.

    Celebrities in Palazzo Pants

    Blake Lively looks stunning in anything she wears. But she pulled off this palazzo pants outfit so well that she inspired fellow celebrities, Annalynne McCord and Olivia Palermo to create similar looks. These celebs have opted for palazzo pants in solid colors. But Vanessa Hudgens has demonstrated how cute and chic patterned palazzo pants also look, as long as you wear the right kind of top! Hudgens is showing off the midriff. But I think that a slightly longer white blouse on the left, and a tucked-in camisole on the right would work just as well for the more modest!

    But how to make the trend your own without becoming a fashion flop? Here are four tips for wearing palazzo pants!

    1. Balance Palazzo Pants with Fitted Tops

    Palazzo pants flare out from the waist, so it is best to wear a more fitted top! If you opt for looser tops, you might end up looking like a big, baggy mess. A form-fitting top will keep you from looking like you’re flowing all over the place and highlight your figure.

    A crop top that sits just at the hem of your pants will show off your natural waist. Tucking in a tank top or fitted-tee will also bring attention to your natural waist and curves. If you need to cover up your arms, pair your outfit with a blazer or sporty jacket with 3/4 length sleeves.

    You can also half tuck in your shirt for a bit more edge.

    2. Solid vs Print  

    We all know that women come in all shapes and sizes. So it isn’t rocket science that certain palazzo pants are more difficult for women with more weight in their hips and thighs to pull off. So although printed palazzo pants look adorable, they don’t work for all of us. Women who worry about how their legs appear in the flowing fabric of palazzo pants can wear solid neutral or black pants with solid tops for a slimming look.

    3. Choose Elevating Shoes

    You’ll need an extra lift to counter your flowing palazzo pants. So avoid flats and sandals! Choose heels or wedge sandals instead. Perhaps, if you are tall, slim and leggy, you can get away with flat shoes, but most of us may need help!

    4. Flowing Accessories

    Because palazzo pants have such a relaxed look and feel, they look best paired with accessories that are similarly relaxed and loose! Avoid anything too stiff! Revel in the boho look by pairing your flowing pants with fringe or suede! Be creative and keep it fun!
