palazzo pants...

the ultimate party pants...palazzo pants became popular in the 1930's...when they were also known as beach pajamas and worn with a loose top over a swimsuit...they have a comfortable feel that can be casual or dressy...depending on fabric and accessories...

the best part...they feel like you are wearing your pajama's...but you don't look like you are wearing pajama' stylish and chic...

in metallic silk with a cashmere sweater and a scarf...the look is cool...understated cotton or linen with a t-shirt and a pair of's pure summer...

how do you wear your palazzo pants?


  1. I love the not-quite-palazzo wideleg pants by XCVI, that achieve their wideness starting from gathers in mid-thigh. I have two pairs in different colors and wear them for just about any occasion that requires pants that aren't jeans. I get endless complements on them.

  2. I think they are so glamorous, but I don't think I'm tall enough to pull off that much fabric. I love them on other people though!

  3. cynthia - i will have to check those out...i have not seen them...but smart of you to buy two when you find something that works so well for you!
    stacy - true...the taller the about adding some luscious high stilettos to add height? =)
