Bold Styling with Palazzo Pants

Bold and Colorful Palazzo Pants

bold color and style

Hey wonderful readers! How is it Wednesday already? I feel like I'm behind with posting but I'm going to fix that right now! I'm going bold in my style today by wearing some very colorful palazzo pants to style for you. Some days, you just feel like adding a little color to your look. These pants certainly fit that requirement!

The last time I wore Palazzo pants was in the 1970's during my high school days. I loved them then and I love them now! (I'm leaving out the bodysuit this go round, though!) The first thing that appealed to me about these pants would be the beautiful blues and greens of the fabric pattern. These pants also are made of a very lightweight satin mini pleat fabric similar to the mini pleat tops I styled for you previously. 

Believe it or not, these pants are much warmer than you would think since they are made of such thin material. I wore these to a restaurant today and ate outside on the covered patio and I was actually too warm in these pants. That means I can enjoy wearing them into Fall which is a good thing. 

I found these pants on the clearance rack at Stein Mart in the late Spring. By the way, if you shop at Stein Mart you may have noticed that they no longer have their $5 Clearance racks (which used to be $3 racks). Instead, they have racks marked 50% down. It's a little harder now to find the bargains like I used to, but I was able to get these Palazzo pants for $10 which is not bad! They were very long on me but, due to the material, I was able to simply cut them down to my height. These will also make great travel pants as the fabric does not wrinkle. 

I'm not 100% happy with wearing this blouse with these pants, but, for now, it will do. What do you think? I originally had another white top on but I felt it fit me too tightly and was not flattering so I changed to this blouse. A cobalt blue top or even a green top that matches the green in the pants would look good, also.

Such bold pants can handle some bold accessories, so I went with a pendant/tassel necklace, a wide gold bracelet and my "Princess Diana" ring. I also have on those bold earrings I wrote about in my playing with fashion post. 

Would you wear Palazzo pants? Do you love bold colors? Hope you will take a moment to share. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!

Until Next Time,

I love your palazzo pants Debbie! Beautiful colors - you can wear so many different colors with those. The pleats are a very nice detail! I love palazzo pants and wear them a lot in the summer since I don't love my legs in shorts! Found another pair recently at a drugstore for $9 and took those home! This style lends itself to bolder colors, don't you think? I can see yours with navy and/or cobalt blue too, like you said! And aren't they just so comfortable? You mentioned your white blouse and not being sure, but it is a nice, casual look and really does work. These pants do look nice with fitted tops too to balance out the volume, or maybe even a belted top? I need to search out a Stein Mart. You have mentioned finding good bargains there, and I honestly don't know where the closest one is for me. Need to look that up! I like your choice of jewelry and noticed your Princess Diana ring right away!!

Great bargain, Karen, finding palazzo's at the drugstore for $9!! I'll have to check out Walgreen's and see if they have anything like that for sale. If you're interested in Stein Mart, you can go to their site and they have a store locator so you can find the closest one. You can also shop online with them and they offer great sales that way,too.
