I bought these pants maybe three months ago, in the heart of the polar vortex. These billowy and printed palazzos, which screamed out for warmer days, literally leaped into my bright red cart and refused to leave. I’ve stared at them from time to time in my closet, tried them on half a dozen times with different tops and shoes, just searching for a way to make them work. Their voluminous fabric legs are reminiscent of pajama pants (and quite possible, parachute material), so much so that one day my six year old gave me the side eye and and asked me why I was wearing pajamas out of the house (and why couldn’t SHE?) This made me doubt myself, and I quickly went and changed and waited until I could come up with a way to wear them.
In the best case scenario, these pants float and flutter, catching small breezes and making me feel quite gypsy like and free. Worst case scenario? I run into a mom at school who is wearing actual pajama pants that resemble my real pants quite closely, and I wonder why did I make and effort to get dressed if I don’t even look like I did? My verdict was that these aren’t for everyone. I like pairing them with a floaty chiffon kimono and loose tank because I enjoy looking a little ridiculous sometimes. I do! I felt free and fun and ready for anything (or in my case), ready for a trip to the grocery store with my youngest. You know, just living the dream one day at a time;)
Tell me, what are our thoughts on printed palazzo pants. Would you wear them?
