Palazzo pants for short girls
Palazzo pants are well known for their loose flowing silhouette ; because of that short girls may be wary of these pants thinking that these could make them look shorter. It is true that Palazzo pants are best suited for tall girls (lucky) but short girls can also look good in palazzos with the right choices.
One must follow style tip for short girls who want to wear Palazzos is never to forget your heels. Palazzos can sometimes make you look shorter than you are, especially if you are wearing one with a lot of flair. I always wear my wedges with my favourite palazzos to appear less stocky than I am already.
Shorter girls should stick to palazzos in a solid colour than follow the tall fashionistas who favour pretty prints like the elephant prints. A top and pants in the same shades will elongate you.
If you are on the heavier side choose palazzos in a dark shade and made with a medium to heavy fabric.
