How I Wear Palazzo Pants Two Different Ways
I sized up from a small to a medium in these Lilly Pulitzer palazzos to get a more traditional, looser fit. The problem with doing that is, loose-fitting, wide-leg pants can make my legs look shorter for my body than I want. So, to help balance out my proportions, I wore these palazzos with high heels.
I also like wearing this style of palazzo in my normal size, so they’re more form fitting. That’s typically how Lilly Pulitzer has their models wear them, and the look is fun, sassy, and sexy. Sometimes I like a more understated, slouchy look like here, and at other times I want full-blown sassy. It just depends on my mood, and I like having the options. Wearing them slimmer also gives me the leeway to wear flats, and I love that, too.

P.S. I now realize I need a slightly taller heel with these pants, because the hems are touching the ground. I never noticed it before!
(ABOVE) I chose one size larger than I would usually wear in Lilly Pulitzer palazzo pants (medium instead of small), so that they would drape loosely over my rear and thighs, rather than hug them tightly. I like the other look as well; but for these I wanted them to fit more traditionally.
(ABOVE) I need to hem these pants or wear higher-heel sandals. They’re just a bit too long here.
