Palazzo Pants, the wear anywhere pants
The pant for any age — Palazzo pants
What are palazzo pants? They are long women’s trousers cut with a loose, extremely wide leg that flares out from the waist. Palazzo pants for women first became a popular trend in the late 1960s and early 1970s, I distinctly remember my mom had a black pair. She was only 5′ 2″ but somehow she carried them off.
This spring you will find palazzo pants and trousers everywhere. You will find every color under the sun, however, the most prevalent look and fabric for this season, is a black and white graphic print, such as these Weekend Palazzo Pants from Monroe and Main that they sent along asked me to style. Discover how the looks I created with the palazzo and how easy this pant style is for anyone to wear.
Yes, that’s STILL snow in the background but I am ignoring it and thinking SPRING. When Walt takes me out, I always dress up. The Weekend Palazzo pants ($70) from Monroe and Main worn with their off the shoulder Lace Peasant top ($50, $13 Sale) gives just the right mix of elegance and sexy. Strappy sandals (new from Salvation Army $4) and a vintage necklace from my mother are the final touches!
Off to the Theater
Just to show you can always step up the elegance factor, I paired my palazzos with this gorgeous blush pink Monroe and Main Gala Tux Jacket ($99, also worn here), this figure flattering Monroe and Main Scuba Peplum top ($60), and a just the right size Monroe and Main Metal Mesh Bag ($40). Just in case I need to head out dancing afterward, my shoes are Seychelles in black and pink (similar $100).
Shopping around town
Because I work at home all day, when I go shopping I like to dress fun and bright. My Monroe and Main palazzos look cute with this bright aqua one-size-fits-all Monroe and Main Reversible tank ($20). This tank comes in 4 other colors (black, cobalt, coral and white) and I MUST HAVE THEM ALL! For shoes, I have on my ribboned Bally Oxfords (similar) and my favorite vintage cashmere cardigan (also worn here).
That SNOW in background is distracting but this is a wonderful outfit for hanging out by the pool in the summer. Once again, I paired the palazzo pants with my bright aqua one-size-fits-all Monroe and Main Reversible tank but this time I also wore this Monroe and Main Crochet Shrug ($40). While I have tons of shrugs, this is my favorite because it’s longer. For women over 45 with a larger bust, a shrug can really be forgiving. Make sure to check out how my blogging partner Katy styled the palazzo pant as well over on Modly Chic.
