12 Palazzo Pants Perfect for Travel From $31


Perfect for hot summers along the Mediterranean, Caribbean island adventures, or cruises where you want something that can go from exploring ashore to an onboard dinner reservation, breezy, flowy, wide-leg palazzo pants are a core part of a minimal and comfy summer wardrobe.

As a Floridian, I wear palazzo pants on rotation in a variety of staple mix-and-match colors during the summer months. They’re loose and comfortable without looking like athleisure or pajama pants. They allow your skin to breathe and let sweat evaporate (keeping you cool), and they add a sense of movement to your outfit that feels elegant and effortless. 

I’ve rounded up 12 pairs of palazzo pants you can get right now in anticipation of upcoming hot summer travels — but I’m willing to bet you’ll wear them beyond the destination. They’re perfect as a comfy plane outfit, work-from-home attire, and even dressed up with heels for more casual weddings or summer events. 

These palazzo pants come from traveler-loved brands like Banana Republic, Everlane, Quince and more, and some are even less than $40. Keep scrolling for our favorite palazzo travel pants for summer.

Simplee Elegant Striped Split High-waisted Belted Flowy Wide-leg Pants 


With an average 4.2-star rating from more than 3,400 shoppers, these palazzo pants are beloved for their comfort and versatility. They even feature a side slit that helps with extra ventilation. One reviewer purchased these for a trip to steamy Thailand and said they wore them constantly. ”Not only are they flattering for the tummy area because of the high waist, they are sooo versatile” they wrote. “They are [a] breezy material which was great for the unbelievably high humidity.” 

Anrabess Linen Palazzo Pants 


More than 1,700 customers have given these linen-rayon blend pants wide-leg pants an overall 4-star rating. The fabric blend helps the pants dry quicker if they get wet, and they don’t wrinkle as easily as 100-percent linen. The elastic smocked waist is comfortable and not restricting. One reviewer raved that these pants would take them straight from the airplane to a safari on their honeymoon as their “go-to travel pants.” “I have purchased five pairs and am looking for more. I wear them casually and a little more dressed up.”

Caracilia Wide-leg Palazzo Pants


Reviewers say these flowy pants with an overall 4.4-star Amazon rating are comfortable and well-made. “They are lightweight and not see-through so perfect for warm weather,” said one buyer who mentioned that they’d be buying more pairs. The bow-tie waistband adds a bit of extra detail that makes these work with sandals, platform sneakers, or heels — not to mention making the fit adjustable, too. 

Scarlet Darkness Wide-leg Linen Pants 


Made from a cotton-linen blend, these pants are ideal for summer breathability. A drawstring waist with plenty of give make these comfortable to wear all day, even when sitting on long flights. A shorts-length lining inside helps prevent transparency (which can make some lesser-quality palazzo pants feel like a beach cover up). Shoppers say these are a great value for the price because of how well-made they are.

Quince Stretchy Palazzo Pant


Silk is a fantastic fabric for summer. It’s naturally body temperature regulating, dries fast, and feels weightless on the skin. These washable mulberry silk palazzo pants are made with a bit of stretch so the waistband feels comfortable all day. The elegant drape of silk makes these bottoms feel like a luxury outfit you could go out dancing in. Pair the navy with a crisp white top to maritime destinations like Mykonos, or get all three colors, including brown and black, to make a versatile set for your summer travels. Just throw in some tank tops in complementary colors and your bag is packed. 

Everlane The Tencel Wide-leg Pant


Tencel is a sustainable fabric made of tree pulp, and is more breathable than cotton, making these wide leg pants from Everlane a great choice for summer. An elastic waist makes these comfortable for sitting and long travels. Angled pockets provide deep enough storage for safely keeping your phone in your pocket. Pair these with a lightweight linen button-down for a breathable look you can wear all day in the heat.

Petal & Pup Pomoa Geo Print Wide-leg Pants


Perfect for a tropical trip to Miami or the Caribbean, these bold-print palazzo pants give the illusion that they’re a skirt. The bright colors and flowy movement of the pants make them something you could wear day or night. To dress it up, just add heels and some jewelry. They even have an overall rating of 4.9 out of five stars from Nordstrom shoppers.

Everlane The Linen Way-high Drape Pant


Made of 100-percent linen, these pants wouldn’t look out of place in Provence or Florence. If you’re worried about wrinkles, one reviewer noted they still look chic even when they’re not freshly ironed—”I live in a very hot and humid climate. These pants are amazing. Even wrinkled, I look cool and collected.” The bone, khaki, and chambray colors will be the best options for staying cool in the sun. Pair these with a silk camisole and heels for a nice date-night look, or keep them more casual with sandals and a vintage tee.

Petal & Pup Devlin Linen Wide-leg Pants


A back zip closure makes these wide-leg pants look elevated and tailored. They’re made of linen, a breathable all-natural fabric that is both durable and timeless,and they come in tan or a bold, trendy-for-spring butter yellow. These pants have a streamlined look without hip pockets, but make up for the missing storage with back pockets. Wear these with a crop top to accentuate the form-fitting waist.  

Banana Republic Linen-Blend Palazzo Pant

Banana Republic Factory

These linen-blend pants from Banana Republic look styled and chic thanks to pleats and a side zipper for a form fit and structured drape. Available in neutral colors like navy, black, and flax, you could pack one of each shade along with a handful of white shirts and instantly have a summer capsule wardrobe that looks personally tailored. Pair with wedge heels or flatform sandals and start browsing the summer markets in style.   

Abercrombie Crinkle Textured Pull-on Palazzo Pant

Abercrombie & Fitch

These flowy, crinkled pants from Abercrombie & Fitch come in three floral patterns. A drawstring waist and high inseam ensure these adjust to your ideal fit, whether you’re sitting on a plane or walking around a botanical garden. I give these extra points for pockets. Wear these with a crop top or tank top. To dress them up, add a light blazer and a platform shoe. 

Old Navy High-Waisted StretchTech Wide-leg Pants

Old Navy

These wide-leg pants feature four-way stretch and moisture-wicking capabilities. Hip pockets and a back pocket give you plenty of space for carrying keys or room cards with you on your travels. I like these best in the tan “stone,” color which will  be the coolest to wear as they won’t absorb as much heat as black pants, but they also come in navy and conifer green. At only $40 (plus 30 percent off at checkout) you could get these in a few colors to have options.
