So I’ve just returned from a much-needed vacation to Puerto Rico, and I’m not kidding when I say I spent the entire time in palazzos.
Who would have thought this early 70’s trend would be making a raging comeback in the 21st Century? Lucky for us, because these just may be The Ultimate Vacation Pant.
Puerto Rico has maybe the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen. I spent most afternoons soaking up the sun, frozen margarita in hand. But come sunset, it was on with the snake print palazzos and go. I wore them for walks along the shore, and kayaking in nearby Fajardo’s Bioluminescent Bay, which I highly recommend.
For cocktails and live music at the local bars it was a decision between my black sash-tie palazzos and my leopard print ones. Either, paired with a simple blouse, made transitioning from day to night a no-brainer. Another thing: palazzos are lightweight and breezy, perfect for dancing the night away to reggae beats.
On my last day exploring the island, I spent all afternoon shopping in Old San Juan. My outfit? Palazzos – the paisley ones. Those, plus a white tank top and sandals for fabulous tropical tourist style.
