Number one, “the blazers.” The blazers can turn any outfit into a professional ensemble. Want to look professional and super confident when you walk into the pitch meeting or presentation? Just throw a blazer on a shirt paired with a palazzo and voila; you are ready to walk into the room feeling like you own the place.  

Denim Jackets

Try something new, cool and funky by pairing your palazzo with a denim jacket. It gives your look a retrospective vibe, adding a little bit of modernity to it. 

Over the years, denim has proved that it is a fashion trend that is here to stay. So embrace this trend and try experimenting when you choose to pair it with a cute top and palazzo.

Palazzo with turtle neck top

Every girl should have a turtle neck top in her wardrobe because not only does it look amazing and fits the body perfectly, it also possesses the ability to serve as a blank fashion canvas for you to throw anything on like a jacket(sleeveless or not), a shirt and most especially, the palazzo.

Ladies, pairing up a turtle neck you own with a palazzo will make you marvel at the wonderful sight when you look into the mirror. 


When deciding to pair a palazzo with another item of clothing, bear the acronym, ECARI  in mind. 

Experiment: Never be scared to try new things. Try to step out of your comfort zone by pairing your palazzo with another item different from what you usually pair it with. For instance, you have been comfortable wearing a shirt and a palazzo, spice things up by opting for a turtle neck next time. 

Colour Appropriation: No matter how beautiful a palazzo is, combine it with the wrong colour of the top/shirt turns it into a fashion nightmare. Always try to select the perfect colour of shirt/tops to go with it. You could stand in front of the mirror and try various colours. The same thing applies to print and patterns.

Rock It: Nothing makes an outfit more beautiful than confidence. When it comes to wearing the palazzo, ensure that you own it. Carry your self with much elegance and confidence, don’t be shy to let people know that you are wearing one of fashion’s greatest invention.
