The palazzo

By: Busayo Majolagbe September 6, 2017

One of the latest fashion trends amongst teenagers is the palazzo. Palazzo pant is a light material pant which is tight at the waist and widens from there throughout the entire length of the legs and ankles.

Most teenagers wear this look during summer because it allows air to flow in itself and is extremely loose. Though not much worn during winters, this style is often confused with bellbottoms but both of them are very different from each other.

In Africa, teenagers wear this look for casual outings or as an attire to receive lectures. Its fun, decent and can be paired with a range of tops like crop, tight tucked in v-necks, off shoulders and many more.

Wondering about when palazzo came to be; many would say it  first became a popular trend in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The style was more like the wide-legged cuffed trousers worn by some women fond of fashions in the 1930s and 1940s, particularly actresses.  Palazzo pants flare out evenly from the waist to the ankle, and are therefore different from bell bottoms which are so tight until they flare out from the knee. Palazzo pants are also not to be confused with Gaucho trousers, which only extend down to mid-calf length.

Today in this 21st century Palazzo pants are manufactured by almost all the popular brands like Gucci, Armani, Zara, Giovanni. Pallazos are best suited for women who are as tall but this does not mean short people cannot also rock them. Recently, most of the girls are switching over to Palazzo pants and the reason is its free flow. The best part about this type of pant is that only your waist needs to measure perfectly to fit in but the rest of the garment just let it flow loose just as it should be.
