Interestingly enough, I could see myself all in these type of pants. Especially with my love for maxi dresses and maxi skirts, I see this as a fun and fashionable option. I also love that there are plus size designers and retailers who are hooking this up for us! YES?!

  • I want to love them, BUT I feel like they are not flattering at all. I will not be sporting them. I’ve had a few pairs in my cart and have taken them out at the last minute. I do like the jumpsuit look, though!

  • I wore them back in the day. I still love the look of them but summer chub rub is bad enough without having to dig your pant legs out every 5th step. I will look on with envy.

  • I bought a pair last summer. I wear scrubs for work and outside of work I have a pretty casual life, so I just wore them with a pretty t-shirt and sandals as an alternative to shorts, skirts, or capris. I looked good, felt good, and will probably buy another pair.

  • I have a pattern for some. But I’m scared….. I’m short and not really sure how I’d look in wide legged pants. Especially since I don’t wear pants….

  • I love them so much. I especially like the stretchy ones. Out of the ones you have posted I love the Ralph Lauren ones, and the Alfani ones. I feel like my style is somewhat similar to yours. I also love anything maxi and think of these similarly. I already have like four pairs in my closet that I bought back in the winter. I loved them when I was teen and they were in style, so as soon as I saw they were coming back now I hopped on it.

      • If you don’t already shop Zulily, you should give it a try. I bought all of mine on there. They have been having a large selection. I got the ones in the picture on there, and I am so in love with them.

  • LOVE LOVE LOVE palazzo pants! I own a few pairs and I was thrilled to see that skinny jeans are finally loosing a bit of their luster. I have never been a huge fan of skinnies, and over the few years, wide leg jeans and pants have been increasingly difficult to find. So I am THRILLED that they are on the comeback! I carry most of my weight in my upper body, so I have thin legs and palazzo pants offer a nice balance (other than a skirt). Everyone can wear them! I’ve gotten so many complements and I often wear them to work. I’ve dressed them up with a nice top, blazer, heels/wedges and i’ve done them casually with flats, sandals and a v neck tee. Try them out!!!! They are cool, breezy… I have nothing but high praises for them!

  • I used to wear them the last go round of them being in fashion and I look back at the pics and realize they just weren’t a very good look on me unless they were tailored more. I thought I was cool and breezy but ended up looking kind of shlumpy. I think the Paisley Ralph Lauren pair might work on me or even the American Rag with that longer yolk might be flattering as well. I just love us all having options to find the right fit for ourselves and not be stuck with all or nothing choices. I surprised the heck out of myself today by buying crop cargo pants for my upcoming trip and they’re cute!

  • I found this page as I was looking for ideas on how to style palazzo pants for my build. (Book marking your blog btw 🙂 ) I bought a smarter looking, high waisted pair for summer office wear. I think I’ll be trying to wear them with heels and a fitted top, possibly with a wide belt. I worry that with a looser top I’ll just lose all definition and look like I’m wearing a sack. They are very comfy though.

  • I loooove palazzo pants…I bought a pair last year some time from Lane Bryant that were sooo cute and comfy that when I went on my trip to the Dominican last August, I bought two more pair. As a matter of fact, I’m wearing a pair right now!!! Lol. I love wearing mine with a crop top or a tank and sweater for work

  • I love them! Since I sew for myself I plan on making a few pairs, or more, for the summer season. I love them for the summer!!!

  • I love palazzos, I wore them when I was young and I’m very glad they have come back into style. They are comfortable and a little dressy at the same time. I feel like they are very flattering on all shapes. I am 6 ft and 400 lbs and they do not add any excess bulk. I have 4 pairs that fit really well and I am always on the look out for more. The Ralph Lauren ones are really super cute.
