Whats the difference between flares, palazzo pants and wide leg pants?
Flares are narrower at the knees giving them that flared effect. Palazzo pants are wide and roomy from the waist down and normally made from lightweight material that gives them their airy feel. Whereas wide legs pants are wider from the hips down and don’t get narrower at the knee, giving them a relaxed but chic look that’s more timeless and less retro. Wide leg trousers are also more flattering on larger hips and thighs.
