During our visit to a vintage store in the East Village last week, we spotted a pair of pretty palazzo pants and the nostalgia set in. Your mother may have even had a pair or two back in her day. This summer, invite the flirtatious and carefree sway of a pair of palazzo pants. Forget your restricting skinnies, it’s all about the wide legged silk/crepe lovin’ from a perfect pair of palazzos. Palazzo pants rose to popularity in the 1960s and 1970s by actresses such as Greta Garbo and Katharine Hepburn. While the prints on palazzos have changed throughout the decades, their liberating and free-flowing charm remains the same. Not sure how to wear them? We suggest pairing them with a simple sheer V-neck cotton shirt or white button down shirt. Slip on a pair of classic T-strap sandals or leather thong sandals and you’re good to go. Take a cue from these lovely ladies.
