Denim might be your best friend for every season and reason but in the sultry summer days, the ripped denim won’t let you breathe easily under the blazing sun. Time to debar the denim, keep your sartorial game strong and get your hand on palazzos to head out in panache.
Palazzo pants directly scooped out from the 60’s. Midway between bell bottoms and flared pants, palazzos have revamped itself over years and turned out to be the perfect summer ensemble for every chic girl you spot in town.
Restricting this trend to the opulent class in the 1960’s and steering away from feminine cuts and skirt silhouettes, the palazzos were donned by fearless women like Coco in 20’s or actress Katherine Hepburn in 1930’s. When women started embracing their personal choice, the palazzos in the counterculture and experimentation emerged out to be the most rebellious piece of clothing for them.
Giving the pants a room, the cuts were more androgynous. Pedal pants, bell bottoms and high waist hip-hugging trousers came storming in the fashion climate. Although the denim was a major wardrobe staple, the palazzos set in and stuck through the ages, till today.

The length cut short, to culottes, where palazzos were brought close to pants and dresses, culottes have morphed into a major style statement in the late 60’s. It started off as the mid shin length, but later it evolved to gaucho and then finally palazzo.
The avant-garde of the post-French Revolution where the feminist strokes outgrew in fashion and couture without a shadow of a doubt. The drama encompassing pants were originating in relation to the power that entwined with women who were enjoying their very own freedom, for a change.

Palazzos has never been out of fashion, rather worked in favor of fashion. The French designers never ceased trying out interesting cuts. The wide legged pants were stripped out to make way for cigarette pants. Skinny like the denim and longer than capris, Audrey Hepburn made it stand out like her iconic roles in the soaring 90’s. The color choices might only be black and white but the array of color choices later seemed to be a fun option for women’s day out or loungewear.
