Flowy Pants: Fab, Fair or Fail?

I'll admit it, I bought these pants for a tropical vacation. They are a wild print, soft, flowing silk, and pretty much perfect to throw on over a bikini. I came home from vacation, put the pants away and I figured I wouldn't see them again until June. But on a sunny, unseasonably warm October, I thought I'd give these palazzo pants another try!

The term "palazzo" comes from the Italian word for "palace". Maybe you can fit a whole palace in the giant legs? Palazzo pants work so well with the 70's look that is so en vougue right now - and hey, if you know how to wear a maxi skirt, you know how to wear palazzo pants! An easy tip: Wear them with a fitted top and heels or boots and watch heads turn. Go ahead, take a walk on the wild side, there's no bravo without bravery!

    I love flowy pants in theory, though I'm a little scared to try them myself. They look great on you, though!

  4. I love them! They're going to be big for Resort 2012. We have a few at LIT. You wear them well!!

  5. I remember palazzo pants! Nicely worn. It's funny how we all buy things for "vacation" and don't expect to see them again, but this works so well!

  7. I think they could totally work for you, just follow the same tips as for a maxi dress! Let me know if you try it??

  8. Yes love these flowy pants! And they certainly work well in the fall!!

  9. Palazzo pants are some of my favorites!! I have a pair in a cream color that I adore and I wear with a fitted black long sleeve top. So great to see someone else giving them some love in such a cute way!! xoxo

  11. These pants are rocking my world. I am so glad you brought them from the vaca wardrobe into everyday. They deserve heavy rotation.

  12. I absolutely love them! And when the weather gets cold, you can wear sweatpants underneath and no one will be wiser! :D
