Whoever thought the loose, flared pant is a thing of the past is highly mistaken as the wider than ever, baggy palazzo pants are the hottest trend this summer. The hippie fashion staple of the 60s and the 70s is back with a bang, whether you love it or hate it! A number of celebrities have been spotted wearing a variety of palazzo pants — some with long shirts to give an eastern touch and others with shorter tops and tanks flaunting a more western look. But be it any way, these trendy ghagra lookalikes are the top picks of the fashion scene.

Palazzo pants are easy to wear and super comfortable. You can wear them in light fabrics such as chiffons and linens and a variety of prints — from colourful florals to two toned stripes. What’s best about them is that they are made for everyone, literally. They flatter wide thighs and elongate the legs, balancing out your figure. But remember to always pair it up with a fitted top and we assure that you will never go wrong. So, stack away those skinny jeggings and make a fashion statement with these voluminous, buoyant 60s-style trousers.
