When Pitusa expressed interest in a product review on V-Style, I was immediately intrigued by the line's verve and it's Peruvian production in accordance with fair working standards set forth by the international labor organization. I accepted their request and decided to check out the Kookara tank, the maxi dress with silver edging and the Tribal Palazzo pants.
It often feels like Christmas day in my office when a package comes from a brand like Pitusa. I tore open the box and smiled gleefully at the items waiting for me. And just like Christmas, it's easy to identify your favorite present of the day. The tribal print palazzo pants take first place for a couple of reasons. First reason being anticipation. I've had a hankering for fabulously printed palazzo pants for some time, an urge that grew after interviewing Celeste Byers. This is not a self imposed wait.Usually when I want something, I find it and get it, but this general period of fashion does not give you many palazzo options, until now. Between the wait and hard to find quality these pants are sacred.
Adding to its glory is the sexy fit. I love how the waist band folds over low on your belly, and cups your hips and bum before expanding into the pool of print around your legs. To ensure this perfect cupping, buy a size up to avoid a too tight fit. I am able to wear a size large comfortably.
Lastly, I thought the pants were going to be super soft, but with a blend of cotton, polyester and lycra, it feels like a proper pant versus blanket soft fabric. Although I needed to adjust to the lack of pajama feel, this combination of materials will ensure the garment lasts longer and won't pill.
Right now, I am using the pant as lounge wear, as it is longer than my legs reach and I need to get them hemmed before showing them to the world. Once I take these to my tailor, I will be paring them with sandals and open toe wedges and avoid clunky or close toe shoes, as they will shorten this type of silhouette. Shorter tanks and blouses in black, white, yellow, or purple will complete this casual boho chic look. Once hemmed I will show you exactly how to wear them in a Vanessa's personal style post.
My reviews are my honest and personal opinion. I never accept payment for reviews, although I am given the product to keep. If I am sent something unimpressive or boring I don’t write about it.
