For all those who are still hesitant to join the bandwagon, the verdict is in; palazzo pants are here to stay. Lets start slowing packing away those chooridar tights and embracing this most forgiving silhouette. We don’t believe in blindly following a trend simply because it is in style but these wide-legged wonders are incredibly versatile, comfortable, and chic. They are your new best friend, working with both Eastern and Western ensembles. We love the Eastern block print palazzos by Fiction Concepts (feature) and Western palazzo jumpsuits by Sania Maskatiya (below).
The style was originally founded in the 1930’s, revisited in the 1960’s and finally returned to the Spring runways in 2011. These pants are especially well suited for our blazing weather conditions, stitched in lovely breathable linens for casual wear as well as flowing silks and jersey fabrics for a formal look. The latest extension to the array of materials used for palazzos are lace, crochet, and chikan. The voluminous lace overlay looks incredibly elegant and can be paired with a simple kurta for an evening out. These fabrics are widely accessible in the market these days in a range of colours, to state the obvious do add lining when you stitch them!
Our top picks for ready to wear palazzos in the city would be Sania Maskatiya Flagship Store, Fiction Concepts (feature photo), Block Seven for Western palazzos, and Daaman. Most importantly if you decide to adopt this trend avoid flared kurtas. Medium to long length straight, loose shirts work best with these pants. Think of it as a substitution effect, trade in the flared kurtas for the flared pants and you’re good to go.
