Everywhere you look, palazzo pants are making a comeback. You see them on the street, at a party, at the beach, in the office and even at weddings. They’re stylish, comfortable, and above all versatile, so if you’re wondering whether they’re for you, or you’re stuck for ideas about how to wear palazzo pants, take the plunge and jump right in. Read on
Palazzos have been a hit since their inception in the 1960s. They were first sported by the famous designer Coco Chanel on a beach back in the day. Cut to a few years later, and this retro trend is back with a new age twist. Follow me, and we’ll break a few myths about palazzos and go over some styling ideas.
What Are Palazzo Pants?
Palazzo pants are trousers, except way more comfortable. They flare out from your knees as they move down to the legs. They are slightly high-waisted and create a sensual silhouette, contrary to the popular belief that they look unflattering. They were first spotted in the 1960s and now come in many variants to match the current trends. From formals to travel trousers, they come in all shapes and sizes. Take a look!
How And What To Wear With Palazzo Pants

2. Wide-Legged Palazzo Trousers
We caught you off-guard with these, didn’t we? We know that the general understanding of palazzos is that they are all about that hippie vibe, but that couldn’t be far from the truth. Wide-legged trouser-style palazzos work well as business casuals. You can throw on a blazer too to finish off the look.
3. Black Palazzos And Off-Shoulder Top
Let’s do the one combination that comes to us naturally, but slightly differently. Instead of black trousers and white shirt, try black palazzos with a white off-shoulder top. Watch this outfit transform the vibe within seconds.
4. 3/4th Palazzos And Bodysuit
Tame your wide-legged trousers with a figure-hugging bodysuit. Checks add character to the pants while its 3/4th length adds to the charm. Style this look with pumps and a formal blazer before walking into a meeting.

6. Palazzos And Short Kurta
Palazzos with a short kurta is one of the smartest outfits you can wear. You can dress up or down with this outfit. You can wear it to work, a party, or a meeting. Finish off the look with platform heels or wedges.
7. Palazzo Pants And Long Kurtis
Palazzos have replaced leggings – and it is official. They bring comfort and style to your ethnic wardrobe. Pair them with any long kurti to create a comfy but chic look.
8. Powder Blue Palazzos With A Tube Top
Pair your powder blue palazzos with a tube or off-shoulder top. Throw on wedges and a side body bag, style your hair in beachy waves, and put on some subtle makeup when you head to your next brunch party.
9. Flowing Palazzos And A Halter Top
Come summer, let these pants take over. They are oh-so-comfortable but without compromising on style. Halter neck, racerback, ruffle tops, or anything that adds dimension without adding weight to the pants works perfectly.
10. Patterned Palazzo Pants
Patterned palazzos add definition to your outfit without looking over the top as long as you choose the right pattern. Ankle-length palazzos and a plain T-shirt go well with white Converse shoes, gladiator sandals, or even sneakers, depending on how you want to swing the outfit.
11. White Palazzos
Fan of linens and cotton clothes? You can do an all-white look with white palazzo pants to look incredibly classy. Tuck in a soft cotton shirt, throw on some tribal jewelry, and go for a “no makeup” makeup look.
12. Striped Palazzos And Crop Top
Heading out to the beach? Ankle-length palazzos are the perfect choice. They are airy, don’t get dirty, and are too cute to say no to. Pick striped pants and pull off the matching top outfit thingy with a crop top, throw in sliders, and a hat!
13. Straight Formal Palazzos
Wondering what straight-cut palazzos look like? Formal palazzo trousers look better when they are a little less broad and cut straight, unlike casual palazzos. Pair this pair with a spaghetti top for a balanced silhouette.
14. High-Waisted Beige Trousers
If you have tried all types of styles with palazzos, go for a matching outfit like this. These high-waisted slit floral pants with a matching crop top are perfect for holidays in summer and spring.
15. Palazzos For Wedding
Do you prefer androgynous outfits over anything feminine? Even to a wedding? Then, a palazzo jumpsuit like this can do it for you. Put your hair in a sleek bun, throw on a side body bag or carry a clutch, and put on some exquisite jewelry to stand out in style.
