THERE is a comeback trend in town in the trousers department of the fairer sex: the palazzo pants.
This trouser shape of the season is wide, and the trend is that the wider the better! Palazzo pants are comfortable to wear and such a versatile piece of clothing. This elegant trouser makes you look fresh and stylish without exposing your shape, so fear not, no matter what your shape is, palazzo will still look great on you.
Palazzo pants might sound new, but they are not. I remember back in the nineties whenI first came across the palazzo pants. My mother had been brought for a pair of jeans palazzo pants by a friend of hers who lived abroad, but she never liked them, so I jumped at the opportunity and took them. When I first wore them, and walked in town with one of my brothers – I caused quite a stir, for people had never seen anything like it before. Well, they are back, bigger and better.
Palazzo pants became popular when Coco Chanel introduced trousers to women in the 1930’s and they became a statement piece in the 1960’s and 1970’s.
Thanks to Coco Chanel once again, the evolution of fashion has been very kind to us this season and there are so many choices of palazzo pants to choose from. From printed floral to jeans, from delicate-lace materials to silk and chiffon.
Celebrities who have been spotted in palazzo pants include Kourtney Kardashian, January Jones and Solange Knowles.
