When I describe my love of palazzo pants to my friends, I get a lot of puzzled looks and questions like “Why would you want to wear pants that baggy?”, or they mistake them for those terrifying harem pants that were so sadly popular a couple of years ago. 
“They are really flattering,” I’ll say with excitement. And if they are still puzzled, I’ll try and convince them that they are no different from a maxi skirt. The problem is that they have like zero hanger appeal, appearing like giant beds sheets and often sweeping the store floor. It’s one of those things you just have to try on (and maybe adjust the hemline). But once you do, you’ll fall in love. Too overwhelming? Heels do help.

Would you wear?
