They are colorful, fun and easy to wear, they flow as you walk and they have a cooling effect in the summer, they are the palazzo pants. Palazzo pants became a popular trend in the late 1960s and early 1970s, now back in fashion more than 50 years later. New ideas in fashion are never really new, they have lived somewhere in different times, in fact Katharine Hepburn, Greta Garbo and Marlene Dietrich in the ‘30s and ‘40s were the first actresses to wear men style wide-legged cuffed trousers. However, even if in many ways pants have liberated women from cumbersome garments and made easier for women to climb on horses or go in and out of cars, there has been a time, only 50 years ago, when women could not enter an upscale restaurant dressed in trousers, they were considered inappropriate garment for the evening.
Palazzo pants came to solve that problem, as they flare out from the waist to the ankle and look very much like a long skirt when the woman is standing still.

Palazzo pants are perfect for the tall, slender woman. Due to the tube like shape top and bottom this kind of pants are becoming on a person with large hips, helping re-balancing the figure and putting it in proportions with the rest of the body. It is not perfect for the short and stocky woman, even if she is on high hills. The choice is yours. Ciao,
