Wide-leg pants rule supreme, otherwise known as palazzos. Loose flowing pants were super popular back in the ’60s and ’70s. As most trends tend to do, palazzo pants have recently made a comeback. There is no singular clothing item more slimming than a well-fitting pair of wide black pants that hit right at your waist. The width of the pants’ hemlines only serves to make your waist look that much narrower. You can dress them up with a fancy blouse or with a regular tank top.
Here I have paired my wide-leg pants with a black top to keep it simple. To make my look more chic I layered them with olive green long airy jacket. Adding layers does not always mean adding bulk. Keep the fabrics light and mix up the lengths, and you’re well on your way to your most slimming look yet.
