Palazzo Pants

Palazzo pants are long women’s long trousers pants cut with a loose and extremely wide leg that flares out from the knee.

They were originally seen worn by brave and gutsy women like coco Chanel in the roaring 20s, and later by innovative actress Katharine Hepburn in the 30s, they first became popular during the 1960s.
Some deluxe and upscale food outlets resisted modern fashion trends by rejecting to admit ladies wearing trousers, which were considered inappropriate  during that era.

They are supremely comfortable because of their wonderfully loose cut, which allows the legs to swirl around you as you walk and gives a graceful flare to your figure.

This loose styling can be relatively conservative, rather like French-cut flared jeans which flare from the hip rather than the waist. But if you prefer, you can find palazzo pants which are very loosely styled, looking almost like a maxi dress rather than pants.


As well as the standard waistline, there are also high-waisted and low rise versions, each bringing its own special flair to the palazzo pants style.

Some Palazzo pants, especially the closer fitting versions, have zip closures at the front or side, but the looser styles tend to have elasticated or drawstring waists.

Hems are often left to move freely, but a gathered ankle gives a different ambience.

It’s a common myth that shorter women, or those with curves, can’t wear palazzo pants, but nothing could be further from the truth.

Naturally, it’s important to choose your Palazzo pants outfits carefully so you make the best of your silhouette, but with a little effort, you can make yourself look superb.

There’s a wealth of choice when you’re deciding what to wear with p/pants, and it all depends on the occasion and the look you want to achieve.

If you are shorter or curvier, opt for Palazzo pants that aren’t too loose or you can easily look overwhelmed, especially if you pick a bold design or bright color.
