Remember the era of the skinny jean? When it comes to pants, we’ve now gone to the other end of the spectrum where the wider the pant leg, the better. Out of different pant styles, one kind that’s made it to Instagram numerous times are palazzo pants. Palazzo pants are full, wide-legged trousers that flare from the waist down to the hemline.
Chic and can be worn with different pieces, palazzo pants and their wide-legged look are versatile and make it easier to play with silhouettes. They’re flattering on pretty much every body type (a huge plus on why they’re so good!), plus depending on the style, you can wear them at the office or even on the way to the beach! How's that for versatile?
Unsure how to pair palazzo pants with items from your wardrobe? Don’t fret; let your favorite Instagram influencers show you how! Keep scrolling for some style inspo!
Have you ever noticed how good palazzo pants look in denim? Here, Ira Oyco shows a classic way to pair these palazzo pants: with a crop top!

With her hair parted in the middle, Ira channels a modern take on ‘70s fashion with a black, long-sleeved crop top, flared denim jeans, black booties, and silver necklaces. She looks hip and ready to take on the cooler weather in Baguio!

What we love about Laureen Uy is that she’s not afraid to experiment with bold prints and bright colors, making her outfits stand out and become a cut above the rest.

The messy blunt fringe and her golden tan make this outfit even more on point.
Talk about a statement outfit! Palazzo pants aren’t just for casual wear; you can even dress them up as appropriate attire to an event like a garden wedding. Lissa Kahayon goes on full maximalist with this palazzo pants coord, including the print, the silhouette, and the texture. Not shying away from frills, Lissa’s ruffled off-shoulder top pair perfectly with her palazzo pants that drape dramatically from her waist to the floor. To offset the look, she went with a small white handbag. It’s a look that can easily take her to a formal or dressy affair in the daytime.
Monochromatic outfits are always worthy of double taps! Chambray and nude are a perfect combination that can make you look like you’re about to go on a safari, and Vern Enciso looks especially ready to go exploring the wilderness in this OOTD. Matching her chambray top with her palazzo pants, Vern adds nude accents that can be seen in her belt buckle, her sunglasses, and her bag.
Here’s another outfit that’s perfect for the summer! Palazzo pants can easily be adapted into resort wear as long as they’re made of light fabric. Patricia Prieto takes the crop top rule a little further and pairs it with something more suited for the beach: a bikini top. The linen pants make the look more relaxed and bohemian, and she finished off the outfit with a pair of colorful sandals.
Who says palazzo pants have to be tailored? Here, Rhea Bue’s pants look especially built for comfort, like you could lounge in them all day. Looking cool in all black, Rhea’s airport outfit mixes elements of street style and athleisure.

It’s always hot and summer-ready in the Philippines, but we love a good fall-inspired outfit! Vina Guerrero looks polished in this OOTD, tucking in a fluffy turtleneck top that will keep her warm in chilly Seoul. Wearing a monochromatic ensemble in auburn, Vina makes the color stand out more with a nude fleece coat. Her boots even matched the outfit!
The palazzo style is so versatile, you can even wear them as suit bottoms! You can use palazzo pants for business or smart casual wear that’s newer, as well as a trendy take on the suit. Nicole Andersson makes these palazzo pants look great as part of the suit, paired with a cropped jacket and a black turtleneck. It’s more casual than usual business outfits, but it will still leave you feeling like you’ve power dressed for the day.
Don’t be afraid to rock prints on your pants! Take a page out of Pia Padre’s style book and pair a solid color when you’re about to wear printed pants like her striped palazzo bottoms. Note the crop top rule, plus she wore heels to further enhance the silhouette.
Of course, crop tops aren’t the only thing you can wear with palazzo pants if you’re confident enough with your styling! Loose tops can look good with wide-leg pants if you’re mindful of the shape of the pieces to avoid looking frumpy. Take a look at Camille Co who pairs a salmon-colored loose shirt with orange trousers (the pockets on the shirt match the pants). Provided that the fabric hangs right on your body, you can get away with wearing a blousy top. Pair with tailored, more structured accessories (note the heels, bag and earrings) to complement the outfit.
