Always ready for its close-up and full of pizzazz, the palazzo pant made its riveting debut by Coco Chanel in the late 1930’s. Coco was likely inspired on her travels by a palazzo or palace when she sported the wide leg in Venice to allow an ease of entrance onto gondolas.
Unlike the gaucho pant with its cutoff mid-calf, palazzos are wide through the legs and flare evenly from the woman’s hip to the ankle. They also serve as a seamless cooling agent on a hot summer day. A crop top and a stylish fedora might be the perfect pairing.
Refreshingly modish. Quite the opposite of passé.
