ALL IN THE DETAILS: A Lotta Pallazo

May 1st, 2015 at 2:00am

Festival season always leaves us craving that effortless bohemian style that simply screams summertime. A boho-chic look can come in the form of a full-blown flower child ensemble or it can be much more subtle. When I see what most Fashionistas rock during the festivals, I think they look rad in the right setting but a pair of lace shorts and a crochet crop top aren’t always the most practical for everyday wear. Follow this Fashionista’s lead and look fresh in a slightly toned down ensemble that includes nods to the boho trend and can take you from a day full of classes to a warm summer soiree.

The most important piece of this look would have to be the patterned pallazo pants. These pants set the mood for the entire outfit. The color and pattern choices can convey the mood and atmosphere surrounding a look. Darker colors might be great for a nighttime look, while pops of bright saturated color complement the shifting seasons.

Another way to tie in the summertime feel is to included bold jewelry pieces. This Fashionista chose to balance the cool color palette of her pants with the warmth of a bronze necklace and gold bangles. She also tied in the blue color palette with a few woven bracelets. Have fun layering up your accessories to add texture and flair.

How To: Pallazo pants can be a little intimidating for some Fashionistas. It can be difficult to style such a big, bold pattern without over doing it. Pair your pallazo pants with a clean tank top or T-shirt for a fresh and clean look. You can also try a pair of toned down pallazos, like this pair from Forever 21. The small scale print and bold colors relegated to the bottom of the pant are a great segue into the style.
