Palazzo pants were popular at a lot of the 2024 fashion week locations including Paris, London Milan and New York. Including:

  • Structured styles in Tommy Hilfiger’s Spring/Summer collection
  • Light weight fabrics and less structured palazzo pants at Christopher Esber.
  • Fabulous brighter palazzo pants at Duro Olowu, Fendi and Giambattista Valli.

My absolute favorite was the blue satin palazzo pants at Fendi which were part of a slinky matching set.

Whats the difference between palazzo pants and wide leg pants

They’re basically the same thing and although there are differences between palazzo pants and wide leg pants the terms really just get used interchangeably. If you want to get into specific wide leg pants tend to have a more relaxed fit, although we’ve been seeing more structured, front pleated styles on the runways. They’re normally have a straight cut from thigh to ankle rather than flaring out and come in a variety of fabrics.

Whereas, Palazzo pants tend to have more fabric and flair from the waist down versus flares that flare from the knee down. They also tend to be made of breezier fabrics like silk or chiffon which is why they’re often associated with resort wear. Honestly don’t overthink it, no one will judge you for using any of the terms for any of these styles of pants.

What types of wide leg pants are in style in 2024?

The wide leg pants for 2024 are more chic than your Mums jeans from the 70’s. Think solid color palazzo pants in billowing materials, white wide leg pants, structured style suits with crisp pleats in luxe fabrics or matching sets. Although wide leg and flared jeans are replacing your skinny leg jeans this year as well.

Just when you started accepting the high waisted pants, low slung pants are back. Don’t worry, high waisted pants and paper bag waists aren’t out but the low slung style gives us more options.

I personally like to have both options. Low slung for when I’m dining out so I have room to eat and high waisted for when I’m wearing crop tops or shorter length tops to close the gap.

How to wear wide leg trousers | Outfit ideas

There are so many ways to wear and style wide leg pants from casual to work to a night out. A crop top and low slung pants is a bit too much midriff for me. I’ve been enjoying Terry’s chocolate orange too much and the bread and cakes in Europe. So I’m sticking to the more high waisted styles and longer length crop tops like the one above or throwing a blazer or shirt over my bralettes.

Wide leg cargo pants with zip details and rope belts are keeping the athleisurewear trend going but in a slightly less casual way than sweatpants and sneakers. Especially with how they’re styled.

For a more casual look style them with sneakers and tank tops, tees or bodysuits. For more of an everyday smart casual look swap your sneakers for wedge espadrilles or strappy sandals.

Cut outs were a big trend last year and are staying in style for 2024 with cut out wide leg pants all over the 2024 runway shows from Chanel to Balmain. If it looks like your G-string’s showing, you’re doing it right!

A leather top and/or statement heels makes the look feel less corporate and more fun. It’s an easy way to add your own personal style to the final outfit.

My top tip for how to wear wide leg trousers and palazzo pants is to look for matching sets in any color. It makes putting together outfits really simple.

How to accessorize women’s wide leg pants

Belts were big on the 2024 runways with wide-leg trousers so grab a chain belt, belly chain or wide belt to complete your look for when you want something dressier. Swap it for a rope belt for a more summery, resort wear vibe.

Petite styling tip

Crop pants can cut off the legs and make them look shorter, so if you’re on the more petite side like I am, longer lengths tend to be more flattering.

How to style womens wide leg pants in 2024

Style your wide leg pants and jeans from anything from street wear to office wear. Think double denim, high waisted styles with a chic top or flowy matching sets layered over bralettes. Because love them or hate them, crop tops and bralettes are still in style for 2024.

For more coverage and an on trend look style your wide leg pants/trousers with crop tops/bralettes with shrugs, longer length cardigans and blazers or monochromatic suits as seen at Chanel and Altuzarra.

I personally like a more fitted top, camisole or bralette with wide leg trousers for a more flattering look than going baggy on both the top and bottom.

The biggest take away for this pants/trousers trend for 2024 is that the more relaxed and baggy the better, regardless of the color or material. Throw on some slides or sneakers for the day with your palazzo pants or heels and a blazer for work or the evening and you’re good to go for 2024.

What’s the difference between wide leg pants and flared trousers

If you’re wondering what the difference between wide leg and flared trousers is, wide legs are wide from the hips down, flares tend to be more fitted on the upper legs and then flare from the knees down.

I’m looking for a casual beachy matching set right now for our beach vacation. I’m really liking this super affordable white wide leg and matching top set and hot pink set under $20 which comes in lots more colors as I tend to only wear resort wear once. Then I can throw a blazer or shirt over the top for cooler evenings.

I’m also really loving this stunning red pants and halter matching set for more of a splurge buy. As the light weight linen is perfect for summer vacations.

However, what I’ll probably end up doing is wearing a white pair with a bralette or bikini top and stealing a white shirt from my husband to throw over the top.
