WIW: casual summer palazzo pants

I decided to try Angie's Outfit Formula: Casual Summer Palazzo Pants today, for a dinner party with family. I used formula 1: palazzo pants with a sleeveless shell and flat sandals.

The outfit: Black split-leg cropped palazzo pants (can't recall the brand, but they are several years old); boxy linen shell in olive, turquoise, silver-grey and black (made by me); flat ankle-strap standals (Eileen Fisher).

How did I do? Do you think these are palazzo pants? They don't seem quite like the current trend.

Thanks for looking!

    And I’m loving the shorter hair!

  • Roxanna replied 10 months ago

    That top is everything. You make such beautiful pieces. And the herbs on those pants give them just enough structure. Brilliant! And I love the shorter hair too :)

    Yep, I’m going with killer too!
    I love your hair shorter as well !

  • shevia replied 10 months ago

    I love the top! Perfect color and nicely structured. Add it to my order ;) .Those are the kind of palazzo pants I could imagine wearing. Is your hair cut or pulled back?

  • kellygirl replied 10 months ago

    Wow, super elegantly and arty! I think they qualify as palazzo pants for sure. You look fab as always and I love the new do! So pretty!

  • Jessikams replied 10 months ago

    Fab pants! And I like the top too. I’d love to see more outfits with these pants— matching a top to shoes, maybe, or emphasizing vertical lines to echo the vertical slots.

  • RainB replied 10 months ago

    The pants look great! Love your top.

  • Firecracker replied 10 months ago

    Thanks, everyone! I appreciate all the support and kind thoughts.
    Shevia, I got my hair cut!
    Jessikams, good ideas. I have tended to wear these pants with boxy tees in the past, with a similar feel to this outfit. I'll have to try something outside the "box," so to speak!

    Your creativity and flair with clothing is outstanding. This is unique, harmonious, and flattering.

  • Sara L. replied 10 months ago

    Those are great palazzo pants.  I'm usually turned off by the extreme length on palazzos but I really like your cropped length with the split leg.

  • JAileen replied 10 months ago

    Again, you look cool in whatever you wear. The top makes the outfit.

  • bonnie replied 10 months ago

    Lovely outfit and I love your new hair cut. Your accessories are perfect with your stunning top and your sandals are just right with the pants.

  • Joyce B replied 10 months ago

    If anyone can pull off this look it is you! Fab!
