I wish I could have been a ‘70s babe. First things first, the music during that era was amazing. Secondly, the style was major. Combine the two and you get Stevie Nicks, the iconic, reigning Queen of Rock and Roll and my ultimate fashion idol. She was a complete dream with her feathered hair and tambourine, and I always find inspiration from her bohemian look of wispy layers and top hats. To sum things up, Stevie is a straight up G and I love her because she rocks.
That being said, it is pretty clear that I love all things reminiscent of the ‘70s. Therefore, it’s only natural that I am a fan of the current palazzo pant trend. Similar to the harem pant, palazzos provide the ultimate combination of style and comfort. Their full, wide legs of light fabric add an instant breeze of movement to any outfit. They’re almost like a fashionable version of pajama pants because they don’t leave me feeling constricted by tight material. Palazzos can be dressed down for a casual day, as this Fashionista did by pairing them with a tank and sandals, or dressed up with a deep V-neck blouse and wedges for a night out.
Sometimes I find that my wardrobe lacks versatility in bottom pieces. Perhaps this is because it can be difficult for me to find alternatives to jeans or skirts. What’s nice about palazzos is that they have the fun volume of a skirt, but the coverage and separation of a pair of jeans. My favorite thing about them would have to be that they are available in many different prints and textures, so they can be found made of patterned gauze or sheer, monochromatic chiffon.
Because of my obsession with everything ‘70s, I have no problem with bringing back the palazzo pant. What do you think about this trend?
