Make all your decisions without fear or favour. Don’t listen to the voice of the masses or to the ingrained belief that you can’t or you shouldn’t. Wouldn’t it be better to ask, “Why not?” Trick is to know how, and how to know. Train your brain to see what works best and never be afraid to take risks.
A few months ago, I decided to get me a pair of palazzo pants to grow my wardrobe a different section, exploring a hipper corporate wear. Adding this to strengthen the vision, to work alongside skirts and other trousers.
Planning outfits for business trips and meetings with global heads, regular office hours and consultations, throw in lectures and workshops, is no easy feat. I’ve never been a huge fan of traditional corporate wear (Fact: fresh out of Uni, I messed up a couple job applications due to my non-traditional fashion sense, haha. True story.) that’s probably why the entrepreneur life works better for me, style-wise; that or working with organisations with a more lenient dress code.
How to wear a pair of Palazzo Pants?
Key things to remember when you’re one to ask “how to wear a pair of palazzo pants?” are: (1) control the size by skimming the top; you wouldn’t want to end up like a coat hanger swallowed by the clothes by wearing everything loose, (2) choose your belt wisely; thin might work but too wide may not, settle for something in between, (3) if you’re extra adventurous, you can go with the print-on-print thing if you reckon my solids are too boring — I’m strongly suggesting that you proceed with caution tho, (4) pay attention on what goes on your feet; though I prefer height to go with the pant, I also wear them with flat sandals (skinnier footwear works best methinks, narrow heels, sandals, or really flat ones — yes, none of those chunky wedges, et al.), and (5) great to accessorize; go bold and stack ‘em or go for statement pieces; keep with the thematic proportion.

Rope Around Your Neck
Cue in the knotted rope I had around my neck, with gold coils no less. This Navy Knotted Rope and Gold Coil Necklace is quite a versatile accessory. It works well with the look I wanted — statement enough to break my solids, chic enough for the ensemble, and made wearing a casual cotton shirt with the palazzo pant coherent. Wearing it dressy or casual will work. I’ll try to share another outfit post when I get to wear it with a more laid-back outfit.
