If you are looking for a new way to dramatize your wardrobe this fall, palazzo pants may be your best bet. These trendy pants marry wide leg trousers with flowy fabric. At first glance, a pair could be mistaken for a maxi skirt, but once these bottoms are revealed, they are sure to add drama to any look.
Although palazzo pants were popular wear for movie stars in the 1940s (Katharine Hepburn, for example), they have never been a fashion staple. And since they seem to come in and out of style over long periods of time, they may not be the best investment. But it's a risk I'm willing to take - I think I may have to add a pair to my wardrobe this winter!
