The soft drape of this style trouser contributes to the long, lean long that is the essence of glamor.

Wide legs are comfortable and chic pants.

If you are looking for women's dress slacks, wide leg or palazzo pants -- especially in black -- may be your best choice. They offer a perennial look of elegance and sophistication.

Palazzo Pants Are Dressiest Style

Palazzo pants, the dressiest version, never really go out of style. The fabric may be copiously draped so the pants legs look like a skirt.

This style is always appropriate for the patio, celebrations such as graduations, weddings, and parties from casual to elegant.

If you are a banker, busy executive, or need to project a conservative professional image, super-wide leg pants may be a bit too dramatic for business wear.

There are other women's wide leg pants that offer figure-flattering drape without suggesting that you are heading off for brunch with the count at his seaside estate.

Length Should Not Drag on Ground

Make sure that the length of this flowing style is perfect for the height of the shoes you plan to wear.

Switching from heels, –even a low heel, –to flats can cause the fabric to drag all over the ground.

This looks messy and as if you are wearing someone else's clothes. It will stain the hem and eventually cause the cloth to fray.

Long & Lovely Striped Pants Pleated Palazzo Pants

If you don’t want to show your cellulite or varicose veins, this can be the perfect alternative to a long skirt.

So often long summer skirts have horizontal tiers that emphasize hip girth. They also may restrict freedom of movement when you want to take a brisk walk.

Chic Pants for Artemis and Metis

For women with a sporty fashion archetype, such as Artemis, or for Metis's sophisticated style, flowing trousers can be the ultimate chic pants.

Artemis often wonders what to wear for a dressy occasion. Wide leg pants, especially those with a sheer overlay, or in a dressy fabric such as silk or velvet, can go almost anywhere with an appropriate top.

Long lightweight cotton gauze, or drawstring waist cotton or silk wide leg pants can be the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.

They offer cool comfort and stylishness in one artfully draped design.

Once you find the pants that are right for you, the only thing left to do is find the perfect top.
