Palazzo pants are making a comeback? Or have they never really been out?

This stylish, chic and comfortable style can be personalised for most events and occasions, we see them at the races, at weddings, office parties at the Barbeque and of course at the beach.


Flattering  most figure types depending on the colour and print chosen, it is a common misunderstanding that curvy girls can’t wear Palazzo pants it’s just all about choice of cut. It’s best if your pants are just skimming above the ground so if they are too long wear higher heels or crack out a needle and cotton. For slimmer girls, a crop top or tucked in blouse can work really well, but if you want to hide a few curves there are plenty of slightly longer tunic tops that look great with palazzo pants.


Our Mombasa rose designers have come up with a super flattering cut that has elastic at the back and a deep front pleat falling from the front waistband that really flatters over the tummy area. The fabric should always be soft enough to fall softly from the waist without catching anywhere.  These stylish, comfortable and versatile pants are a design that Mombasa rose will be running in their range for some time yet.



Palazzo pants can be found in prints to match every mood and taste, ranging from classic monotone prints to bold stripes, from gentle floral prints to super rainbow coloured summer beach prints.


As well as coming in a huge variety of prints they also are also popular in sophisticated textural plains for more formal wear, they are often worn at weddings or at the races.


Tips on how to style your new Mombasa Rose Palazzo Pants


Soft and pretty

Choose the Mystic Lilly Palazzo pants and pair with a pretty pastel cashmere jumper, nude boots and a pair of statement earrings.


Wild Night Poppy

The red on black print of Night Poppy pants make a wild and exotic outfit worn with Petra top in the same print, your perfect 70’s retro chic!


Your Inner Italian

Milano Palazzo pants in plain Chianti Red with a vintage rose printed off the shoulder top and a rodeo cowboy belt..


Summer Vibes

To look sophisticated and chic find the perfect plain black or navy pants, then following the “less is more” plan, choose a monochrome palette. 

Plain Black pants worn with a stylish off the shoulder top in a bold colour and a finished with a shiny lariat necklace and heels. Or plain navy pants with a soft chiffon button up blouse and an Erstwilder retro brooch can really give an Audrey Hepburn look.

Beach Looks

If casual dressing is more your style then choose a bright cotton stripe or a tropical print, paired with an embroidered Mexican blouse and Voila! Frieda Khalo! All you then need is a basket of fruit and a pot of paint. If it’s the beach calling choose a monochrome print and pair with a white cotton top and havianas, surfboard optional. 

Summer vacation fashion often means cropping your pants to above ankle length and wearing over a bikini.

Retro Palazzos

If Retro dressing is your thing then it’s really fun to wear top and bottom in the same print, we styled our model Tahalia in this look and what fun! She looked the 70’s chick to a T


Shoes that look best with Palazzo pants

For a perfect finishing touch its important to choose the right shoes, it may seem that as they are hidden under the wide leg the shoe is less important, but its still  a good idea to pick the right style.


Shoe choices

Heels are a good idea as they lift the hem clear of the ground so creating a softer shape., for now a pair of mid height chunky heels or short boots with a heel will make a good choice, but in summer a high strappy heel also can look divine.

If you are wearing your pants to the beach then go for a pair of Mediterranean style espadrilles, or even wear your trusty Havianas.

To rock a perfect 70’s vibe find some cork wedgies! Probably some op shopping called for here.
