For The Office

If you’re after smartening them up for the office, team your palazzos with a chic blouse. The beauty of the palazzo is they already have a tailored feel and can look office-appropriate if you style them up right. This cornflower blue shirt and striped palzzo pant combo will be our work uniform all summer long.

For Weddings

Bored of wedding-guest dresses and tired of your jumpsuit? Well, one of the freshest way to take on summer wedding season is with sleek separates. Try a voluminous palazzo pant with a matching sleek shirt a la Jourdan Dunn or mix it up by pairing a high-waisted pair with a slinky camisole tucked in.
