This article is Part One of a two part series. Part Two is on it’s way very soon!
I hate jeans – there, I said it! Ah, it feels so good to say (or write) it out loud. Even though I wear them in my day-to-day, they are not my favorite. To add to my misery, it is so difficult to find the right jeans that fit me perfectly!
As an alternative, I have always relied on my trousers, skirts and my trusted palazzos. They are extremely free, flowy, comfortable, and can be paired in a hundred different ways. I love how versatile they are as a single piece of clothing – traditional, modern, indo-western, casual, formal – you name it and palazzos can do it!
This week I decided to put my jeans in the backseat and tried wearing palazzos for an entire week. Now, it wasn’t really possible to wear palazzos to work everyday but I made sure to change when going out.
Let’s roll the week! (For this post, you will see outfits I wore from Monday to Thursday)
Day 1 – Let’s go formal!
To kick off the week, I wore my palazzos with a striped shirt/top for an office look – easy and comfortable clothing to charge myself for a tedious Monday. For accessories, rose gold studs and a watch with a pair of ballet flats and my trusted handbag – nothing too fancy, but definitely comfortable!
Day 2 – Tuesday Talks
Meeting someone for a quick bite to eat? Just put on a top and a pair of culottes and you are good to go! This is my favorite way to style a palazzo (or, culottes if you want to be specific!). Effortless and chic.
Day 3 – Beating the blues
For a casual Wednesday evening, I paired an Aztec printed spaghetti top with a plain blue palazzo (same from Day 1 – always using the same clothes in different ways). I am quite short (grrrr, genes!) and palazzos can sometimes make me look even shorter. As a solution to this, I added a pair of nude wedges for some extra height.
If you’re feeling a little fancy, add a chunky necklace to the outfit!
Day 4 – All about color!
We are nearing the end of the week and I need a pick-me-up to get through the week. I added a bit of color to my outfit to start getting ready for the weekend!
This time, I reversed the pairing by choosing a plain (but bright) top with a printed cotton palazzo. Maa picked this palazzo for me from an art exhibition (we share superb taste!). I added a pair of hoop earrings and some colorful bangles alongwith my favorite pair of jutti to finish the look!
