Palazzos are very comfy to wear, chic to flaunt and can be styled with just about anything; with Indian ethnic wear too. Here are 10 best ways to wear palazzos that we could use for inspiration, and worn by the leading ladies of the silver tinsel town, Bollywood. Check them out, emulate the look and style up like a diva on the streets, at work and just about anywhere else you want to.
1. Pair palazzos with anarkali suits
We told you palazzos could be worn with Indian ethnic wear too, and here’s the proof. Sonali Bendre wears an anarkali suit with deep and heavy embellishments on the neck in cool tones for the top and the bottom. The complimenting colors of pinks and blues with hints of warm toned orange makes for a splashy fashion statement in its own rights. Minimal makeup and nude lips, with hair left messy and flowing comes about as a trendy avatar to flaunt. Pumps for the feet in neutral tones would balance the overall affair.
For after office hour parties thrown at the work place, you wouldn’t need to have a lot of time to doll up! Here’s a look at one of the famous fashion weeks in India that shows us how to transit from office to fashion diva in less than ten minutes. An embellished long mid slit kurta paired with palazzos makes for a party look for sure. Complete the look with a tote in hand, heels for the feet and a topknot for the hair.
Hanging around with the girls at the mall or maybe over coffee for some gossip? Be cool and look coolest in a printed cotton palazzo with large flares and pairing it with a sleeveless top in dark hues. If you are planning to head to the bar for some fun, accessorize later with beaded chunky neckpieces and wristlets for the hands. You can wear pumps or flats for the feet, depending on the comfort level you need.
4. Complement palazzos with long flowy kurtas
For a formal gathering, a ritual, a religious affair or more, one needs to be dressed apt, but not boring. Long flowing kurtas in asymmetrical styles or and with or without layers can be paired with silk or sheer palazzo pants, just as our Bollywood fashionable divas do. Keep the makeup minimal if the kurtas are heavily embellished and the hair flowing all around.
5. Give a metallic touch to your palazzo look
Black palazzo pants with a white top looks cool for the college fest, however, you could further enhance the look with a shimmer summer cropped coat or a crop top. Carry a chunky tote or a clutch bag in hand, wearing your hair in a bun and heels on the feet. Red hot lips complement the black palazzos for sure, but keep it glossy for the evening and matte for the day.
6. Mix and match your prints and patterns
Chunky crop tops in chic patterns and cuts can be worn with printed palazzo pants for a summer evening out at the movies. You could complete the look by contrasting the colors or wear neutral shaded accessories- pumps for the feet, wristlets for the hand, a chunky watch too or chic hair accessories to balance the look.
7. Wear mid-length anarkali with palazzos
Pair up cool toned mid length anarkali churidars that have gold or metallic embellishments and art on them, with printed cotton black and white palazzo pants. The look comes as neat and complete with complimentary tones, minimal blush to the cheek and the chunni draped on one shoulder. Heels for the feet adds more oomph to the look!
8. Drape your palazzos for an indo-western touch
Actress Tilottama Shome drapes the chunni of her palazzo suit in chic ethnic ways, and also shows us how to go monotone in palazzo styles too. One look has her wearing a white and black top, with a pair of black palazzos for an event, while the other shows us how ethnic embroidered palazzo pants can be paired with kurti tops and a chunni in the same hue.
9. Sheer tops look feminine with palazzos
Sameera Reddy shows us how to be the red carpet diva at the college fest, annual gatherings amongst friends or for birthdays in a sheer cut out top and creamish hued palazzo cotton pants. Apt for the summer evening party look, complete the aura wearing black heels and carry a tote or a clutch bag in the same shade as your shoes. Sonali Bendre on the other hand brings back the 70s look with a neutral toned crop top and sleeveless tee, paired with pink flared palazzo pants!
10. Psychedelic-print tunics with palazzos look summer chic
Very feminine, elegant and graceful, when you know how to style your palazzos with floral tops, kurtis and shirts, you then can make a fashion statement much on the same lines as Bollywood diva Sophie Chowdhury. Balance the look with lace or sheer fabric palazzo pants in white when wearing light colored floral tops to avoid contrasts!
