Bring out the rebel diva in you this season. Ditch those prim 'n' proper, fitted pants and get breezy in slouchy, flared pants. Giving the perfect silhouetted outfits a miss, we spotted many celeb fashionistas rocking free-flowing trousers in their various avatars. From breezy palazzo pants to floor-sweeping culottes and high-waisted bell bottom trousers - you can rock these airy ensembles for work as well as for a hot party. Here are our style cues on how to style these just right!

*Checking all the style boxes: Go casual cool for a summer soiree by pairing floor-sweeping culottes with a crochet crop top, à la actor Kangana Ranaut. Finish the look with strappy thong sandals or a pair of sleek brogues.

From L to R: Kendall Jenner, Kangana Ranaut and Priyanka Chopra.

*Monotone magic: Want to stick to the basics this summer? Then, go monotone in style. Get inspired by American model Kendall Jenner to rock black, flowing palazzo pants with a muscle tee in black and white hues. A pair of drool-worthy caged heels and red lips complete her look.

*Retro raazmatazz: Actor Priyanka Chopra aces the nineties style with a dash of contemporary chic. Denim bell bottom pants paired with a tee and flatform sandals work well with minimal makeup and a cute top knot.

*Doing denim just right: Make comfortable flared pants, work-wear ready by pairing them with a crisp white shirt and shiny oxford shoes. The oh-so-serious shirt gets a dose of fun with flared culotte pants such as this creation by fashion label Rodebjer.

From L to R: Designs by fashion house Balmain and fashion label Rodebjer and Italian actor Thony.

*A pop of hue power: Coloured denim and skinny jeans are passe. Beat the heat and stay peppy too by taking a stylish cue from Italian actor Thony, who pairs her sunny yellow palazzo pants with a red pout to ace the look.

*Just press print-play: Get inspired by the spring-summer lookbook of fashion house Balmain to mix summer-perfect prints. A pair of floral printed palazzo pants paired with a striped top can be styled with an obi belt to tone down the print excess.
