STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Partying In Party Pants

May 20th, 2015 at 2:00am

Back in the ’80s, palazzo pants were all the rage. Extremely exaggerated wide leg pants were totally in. And now, 30 years later, they’ve made a comeback. Today, we women like to call them our “party pants,” most likely for the variety of fun prints in which they are available.

Tribal or floral prints are particularly popular when it comes to this trend. Pair this chevron pair from Target with some wedges for a more dressier ensemble. If you’re looking to be a little more “out there,” these polka-dot pants will do the trick. You might even be able to sport some in the office at your summer internship with a pair like this from White House Black Market.

This Fashionista kept her party pants look pretty casual. She paired her black and white floral pair with a black tank, sandals, aviators and teal tote bag. It’s a cute, comfortable look that she can wear to her final classes and study sessions.

The best part about party pants is that you can dress them up or dress them down. Don’t feel like wearing a dress or skirt? Substitute them for palazzo pants! They’re way more comfortable and can still be worn in the summer due to their extremely wide leg. You can wear them to the beach over your bathing suit, out to dinner or while lounging around the house. There is no limit as to how you can wear them!
