Styling Palazzo Pants

Wanjiru-Kariuki-Palazzo-Pants 6

As a fashion enthusiast, you realize that the 70s and 60s style are having a comeback. In my case if anyone mentions a palazzo pant, I get a vivid picture of a photo I once saw of my grandfather wearing his magnificent afro, wide legged trousers(Belly Bottom) and a pair of heeled shoes(Blocks). Trust me he was that cool guy.

Also, known as Culottes, these pants hardly go unnoticed as their uniqueness makes them not your common pants. They flow loosely from the waist and get wider downwards, explaining their wide flare. You can actually confuse them with skirts.

They are comfortable and modest without losing a fun, chic and edgy style. It’s never a challenge styling Palazzos as they seem to seamlessly gel with any kind of top or shoe.

However, I would highly recommend that you style them with Tops/blouses with a perfect fit. The fact that they loosely fit, fitting tops will complement by cinching your waist. This ensures you don’t look all tacky and bulky. Tops like crop tops, vests or fitting blouses would complement Palazzos perfectly.

Never shy away from layering your tops with kimonos, sleeveless coats and blazers. Get as creative as possible as long as you maintain polished sophisticated look.

I love my vibrant floral printed Palazzo pants. I always choose solid coloured tops, or blazers whenever I style them, not to end up looking like a flower bed. I layered the green top with my favourite leather jacket .

I preferred the yellow heels for some elevated look. Sandals however would also cement this look on an easy weekend where comfort is crucial.

But who minds stripping everything when nature calls just for a few minutes and slay for the entire day? There is no shortcut, everything beautiful has its flaws and cons.

Jumpsuits have been in existence since time immemorial. I remember as a small gal I had several pieces in denim texture(Dungarees) but at that point I never knew nothing about fashion. Coincidentally I bet it’s a mothers’ intuition, my daughter has her share of the same which ranges from pajama jumpsuits, Rompers and casual play-suits.

Dressing up sometimes can be daunting, demanding and exhausting. We wish for that convenient one-piece apparel you can pull without having to ensemble or layer it with anything else. What you see in my pictures today is a perfect definition of a convenient easy outfit which requires only ironing.


If I were to pull a corporate look with this a jumpsuit, I would just add a blazer or a sweater. Second, change my strapped shoes to closed official shoes and Voila…. Perfect corporate look.
