If tights and churidaars are at one end of the spectrum of leggings, then the other end most definitely belongs to the Palazzo pant.
Several 2012 and 2013 collections by our favorite Pakistani boutiques on facebook, including this one by Sara Maniya, have been showcasing a Pakistani flavour of Palazzo pants that look great in combination with a stylish top.
Cut with a loose, extremely wide leg that flares out from the waist, Palazzo pants are loose and breathable in hot weather making them a popular summer season style choice. Palazzo pants for women first became a popular trend in the late 1960s and early 1970s.
Similar styles include Harem pants which taper down to a snug cuff around the ankles and bellbottoms which are flared at the bottom but snug around the thighs. Whatever you do, don’t confuse them with pajamas!
Palazzo pants are the sort of fashion item that are popular because they can be used in so many different situations. They can be worn whether you are dressing up or dressing down. They are also very comfortable as they are loose fitting and light. That being said they are not a look that appeals to everybody and it is certainly easy to see why. Nevertheless for the people who do like the look they offer a lot of style options.
