On one of my trips to Colaba Causeway to pick up some junk jewelry I came across this shopkeeper who pronounced something which I could hear as ‘plaso’. The first thought that occurred to me about this ‘plaso’ was that it were some plus size t-shirts. However, later when Googled about it, I left a chuckle under my breath. He was selling PALAZZOs!!! Many know what palazzos are, but for those who don’t know – they are pants made normally in a free-flowing material which flares out evenly from the waist to the ankle almost looking like a long skirt.
They are the favorite summer apparel in many tropical countries because the flowing fabric like silk crepe or chiffon lets the skin breathe. Formerly, in around 1960-70s palazzos were limited only to those who wanted to try crazy fashion trends, but now it is seen in almost every girl’s wardrobe.
