Is this the beginning of the return of the flare? Palazzo pants are a polarizing style: you either love them or you hate them. A trend with deep vintage roots, palazzo pants first appeared as a glamourous piece for old Hollywood stars in the 1930s, and then again as a hippie fashion staple in the 60s and 70s. Most recently, we’ve seen the light-weight, flowy style as a part of celebrities‘, reality stars‘, and models‘ summer ensembles.

Palazzo pants are easy to pull-on and go, provide balance and flatter wider thighs and hips, and create the illusion of a maxi skirt while keeping the freedom of pants intact. Because the pants are the epitome of high volume, however, they’re definitely statement-making, and are not always the most wearable. If you’re considering purchasing a pair of palazzo pants, the key to maximizing wearability is to consider the proportions of your outfit. Think balance! If you follow the baggy pants + fitted top formula, you can’t go wrong. When in doubt, simply style your palazzos like a maxi skirt! The result is a look that’s both comfortable and cute.
