Not that I have anything against skinny jeans but let’s face it, getting into them can be a pain sometimes. For instance, take a hot sultry day, add to that some annoying bloating hat can randomly spring on you when you’ve had a salty lunch or are PMSing/hungover and viola! you are left with low self-esteem levels and a pair of skinnies that look they they want to swallow you whole. On days like these, all you want to do is slip into the comfiest pair of PJs. Now, I don’t have to tell you how impractical it might be to show up at work in those but, as with all Pixar movies, there’s a happy way out. Enter palazzo pants. They look formal enough to wear to work but provide the same comfort as your pajama bottoms. Here’s how to wear this wonder bottom through the week without letting monotony set in.
Just out of your Sunday vegging out session, getting dressed for work requires a certain investment of time and energy—both of which are running thin on a Monday. Balance out the effortless comfort of a pair of black palazzos with a dressy formal blouse and switch on to work mode.
Before the tedium sets in, experiment with a easy-breezy silhouette by pairing navy blue palazzo pants with a printed kurta of the same hue.
A simple way to make palazzos look super-profesh is to team them with a white button-down. High on style and comfort day-long.
Yes, you can wear a crop top to work without having the HR signal out warning bells and yes, you can wear one with palazzos. It’s probably best to leave the mid-riff baring ones for a Saturday night out, though. Pick something that hits you right at the waist.
If you’re anything like me, you need your Friday outfit to transition seamlessly from work to cocktail hour. Your best bet is to team a bright pair of palazzos with a cold-shoulder top. And add a generous sprinkling of accessories, of course.
