How I Thrifted My Palazzo Pants

Before I share my 12 outfit ideas, I wanted to tell you the quick story of how I thrifted my palazzo pants.

I found them at Goodwill Janesville (WI) during a particularly good thrift outing. My cart was overflowing with fun, colorful pants, but most ended up not fitting or passing the vibe check.

As soon as I put on these teal palazzo pants, it was an instant yes for me. I started hopping around the tiny fitting room with excitement. Then my excitement grew even more when I realized they had new tags on them, and the thrift tag color was half off that day!

For the curious, these are “A New Day” brand (sold at Target) in a size medium. I’m normally a small/6, so they’re a little roomy in the waist, but cute and comfortable nonetheless! (Here’s a link to a similar pair currently being sold on Target)

Styling Palazzo Pants With… A Jacket

The flowiness of palazzo pants contrasts nicely with a structured jacket like a moto jacket or cropped denim jacket. It helps streamline the outfit and balances the proportions really well.

Styling Palazzo Pants With… A Colorful Blouse

How do you style a colorful piece? The answer: with even more color! I chose tops that match, contrast, and complement the bold teal of the pants. I also did the same with my shoes – choosing sneakers, ballet flats, and high heels. I just kept mixing things up for new looks!

Styling Palazzo Pants With… A Fun Top Layer

These 3 outfits were purely FUN! A cat vest, slouchy knit cardigan, and vintage sweatervest just add to the playfulness of the palazzo pants.

Styling Palazzo Pants With… A Statement Coat

Palazzo pants are one of those pieces that can be worn year round if styled correctly. For cold temps, layer heavily under them and wear a coat on top for added warmth. For warm temps, use the breezy fabric to your advantage and pair them with a tank or pretty cami!

Playing Favorites With Palazzo Pants
