STYLE GURU STYLE: Palazzo, Please

Simplicity can speak volumes when it comes to fashion and it rings true in the overlooked spring 2015 ready-to-wear collection from Steven Alan. These humble looks feature loose dresses and menswear-inspired pieces in contrasting magnitudes. I immediately fell in the love with the subtlety of the feminine essence and the revival of the wide-leg pants. This 1930s trend is the epitome of cool and has made me skip out on my usual skinny and boyfriend jeans this summer. It’s safe to say that I’m a whole new person now that palazzos have entered my life because trust me, nothing makes me skip out on jeans when it comes to pants.

Palazzo pants are comfortable and extremely figure-flattering—not to mention, they add inches (well, the illusion of inches) to your height. If you’re on the shorter end of the spectrum like me, you will appreciate when a new trend that comes along that will make you appear taller than you actually are. If you can’t tell how hard I’ve fallen for these wide-leg trousers, I can reassure you that they’ve already made their way into my go-to festival look.

Channeling my inner Katharine Hepburn-esque persona through a pair of printed palazzo pants, I donned these trousers with a black crop top, a floppy hat and platform sandals with the understated details of white nails and gold accessories.

This trend has become a real game changer in my summer wardrobe and I’m psyched incorporate it with my everyday wear for the rest of the season.

Get My Look: 1. Printed palazzo pants. 2. Crop top. 3. Wide-brim floppy hat.
