Palazzo pants, or wide leg pants, are the must have item this summer. The ideal alternative to skirts, shorts and dresses, this look adds some mediterranean sophistication to your wardrobe and keeps you cool during hot summer months. Seen on the spring summer runways at Chloe, Celine, and Victoria Beckham, the look celebrates the looser, more relaxed silhouette of the season. Remember to keep some aspects of your outfit tailored- crop tops, form fitting t shirts, and tailored tunics all work well. This is a great look for shorter women as the elongated waist and floor skimming pants create the illusion of hight. If a longer pant leg doesn’t appeal, a cropped palazzo is always stylish. Choose one in a neutral tone to avoid clown references and wear with chic loafers or sandals.
