Newsflash! In case you hadn’t noticed, this summer has been a real devil-in-red scorcher. Until some fashion designer comes up with the perfect garment solution with a hidden air conditioner panel included, what’s the next best fashion solution? Answer: Easy, breezy palazzo pants, which keep your wardrobe stylish and your thighs from sticking together. Here’s a few styles, and how to get the look at any price point.
Under $50 Forgo your yoga-ready leggings for these slouchy yet polished knit palazzo pants from Urban Outfitters ($49), which you can belt high on the waist or wear low and laid-back. Kicky, patterned versions from Mango ($50) and Asos ($41) also allow for maximum comfort–plus the tropical and animal prints make them oh-so packable for vacation.
Under $150 For a little more structure, try Zara’s pleated version ($80) or Anthropologie’s cropped wide-leg iteration ($60). Enza Costa’s take on the trend ($121) has a flowy, work-ready vibe, while a vintage, belted pair from Romeo Gigli Vintage ($117) has us seriously channeling “Saturday Night Fever”.
Under $400 Worried about looking frumpy? Go for a high-end material like Alice + Olivia’s stretch crepe ($300) or a kelly-green silk from Madewell ($210). L’Agence’s black, floor-sweeping version ($380) is our office-to-dinner pick, but for a wilder summer night on the town, we’ll take Anna & Boy’s super-chic chevron offering ($385).
