Straight Palazzo/ Regular Palazzo
This is the most basic of palazzo types to don. A regular palazzo is one in which the pants rest in a straight cut along the length of your legs. There of course is the flare- for what are palazzos without some drama?

Whether it be the classic thigh high slit that has you making a bold statement or the more relaxed side slit, you can’t ever go wrong with one of the cuts. Of course, you can also opt for the breezy front slit that is a style statement in itself. Who knew allowing the palazzo some more breeze with all that cuts and stuff would render it all the more hotter?!
