I remember a couple times in the last decade when palazzo (read: really freaking wide, long) pants made appearances among the rich & shiny. Once against, they’ve emerged on the unfairly-long legs of Anne Hathaway.
At first, i was confused. Then, I was hurt. Then, I was intrigued… And now I just don’t know what to think!
Actually, at first, I thought it was a maxi skirt. When I thought it was a maxi skirt, I really liked the look. When I realized that they were palazzo pants… I felt like I wasn’t supposed to like them, but I didn’t really know why.
I think that there are some rules that go along with this type of pant. Obviously (obviously?), you would want to have a more fitted top over these billowing bad-boys. I think it also couldn’t be… boring. You know? Like, I don’t think you could just throw on an Alternative Apparel v-neck and call it a day. I think that whatever you pair it with would have to be interesting enough to balance out the fact that you’re wearing curtains as pants.
Oh, and platforms. Duh.
