Shirt: Gap; Palazzo pants: Big Bazaar; Shoes: Inc. 5; Necklace: Charming Charlie; Watch: Tommy Hilfiger
In the not so numerous number of days I’ve been into fashion, I noticed that shying away from patterns is what most of us do. We like to stick with what we know and end up with a wardrobe of clothes that are similar in cut and colour. But it’s always fun to experiment. I began to wear palazzo pants after I scraped my knee and couldn’t wear regular ethnic pants to college. I loved how comfortable they were and ended up buying two more pairs in different colours and prints.
For a while, I’ve been meaning to wear them without a tunic and ended up with this combination. Palazzos are supremely comfortable because they don’t cling to your legs- a godsend on humid days. They are generally high-waisted and that helps to make your legs look longer and waist look leaner. If you have a longer torso, I suggest you try a pair on before you buy- not all pairs are made the same and longer torsos could get cut off in an unflattering way.
Add a bright print and you have a statement making pair of pants that can be college appropriate and brunch appropriate.
The key to wearing loud prints is matching it with the colours that are present in the print. Here, the pants are mainly red and yellow with hints of green. So I chose this crew neck shirt in bright yellow and success! The necklace also follows the same philosophy and plays off the flower print (I love necklaces, as is evident). And because the outfit in itself is bright, I chose nude wedges so that it doesn’t take the attention away.
This combination is simple, and the pairing philosophy is basically foolproof. Wear a print this week, you’ll be surprised at how ridiculously easy it is. Plus, if you wear palazzos with a tunic, it won’t even violate your college dress code. Now that’s an outfit winner.
