They were trendsetters between the 60s and the 70s and then went out of vogue. But they are back in the world of fashion today and have become a wardrobe staple for women, especially in India. We are talking about the quintessential Palazzo pant, which has become the single most versatile piece of clothing that can be styled in innumerable ways. If you are planning to rock the Palazzo look as well, here are a few stylish ways in which you can combine them with other clothes.
Palazzo Pants with Kurtis/Long Kurtas
Want a rather simple but trendy outfit to wear for a casual social gathering of friends and family? Try pairing palazzo pants with a long kurta, aka Kurti. While leggings can look good with long kurtas, palazzo pants can turn out to be surprise additions to an already simplistic and yet ultra-stylish, ethnic look.
Palazzo Pants with Short Kurta/Tunic
A smart and chic ensemble, a palazzo pant paired with a short kurta can speak volumes about your style choices. As palazzo pants rock the fashion world, you can choose to pair them with a short kurta or a tunic to turn up your fashion statements a notch higher. The tunic with palazzo combination works great for any occasion, be it a formal party or meeting or a casual outing with friends.
Palazzo Pants with Anarkali Suits
You can never go wrong with this look! A great choice for special occasions like family functions and weddings, the Anarkali paired with palazzo pants will lend a fresh look for your sartorial choice. However, the Anarkali – palazzo combination would look good only if paired with the right accessories. Accessorize the outfit with heels or wedges and with chunky earrings and heavy bangles for a more dramatic effect.
Palazzo Pants with Halter/Tube Tops
A great choice for a casual, summer outing, a pair of palazzos with a halter or tube top can make you the newest model on the streets. Complement the look with side-swept wavy hair, subtle makeup, wedges and a stylish handbag/body bag, and you will be ready to hit the runway in no time. Just make sure that the top you choose needs to be simple and add dimension to the pants without weighing them down.
Palazzo Pants with Jackets
As palazzos continue to set the fashion world on fire, we take a look at another way to style palazzo pants with ease. Casual jackets look great with flowing palazzos when styled and accessorized properly. Depending on whether you choose to wear a jacket-kurta or a jacket-top combo with your palazzos, consider choosing the complementing accessories wisely.
Palazzo Pants with Suits/Salwar Kameez
Consider the tunic with palazzo to be too simple and the jacket/Anarkali with palazzo to be too gaudy? Choose a style that strikes a perfect deal between both extremities, a simple, chic palazzo suit. Perfect for casual or formal gatherings, a traditional suit or salwar kameez paired with a palazzo can lend a new look to your attire with ease.
Style Essentials to remember when choosing Palazzos
Here are some pointers to keep in mind when choosing palazzos
- Flowy materials like silk or soft cotton are better for palazzos.
- Flora prints are universal and complement any outfit.
- Subtle shades work well, especially if the top is brightly coloured or has an ornate, heavy design.
- Low waist palazzos work well with traditional outfits while high waist palazzos complement modern clothes.
- Accessorize with heels or wedges, as flats don’t look good with palazzos.
- Choose your jewellery carefully and flaunt them proudly when wearing palazzos.
