Palazzo Pants and Midi Dresses: Are They Right for Petites?

 

If you’ve been following petite fashion blogs like Extra Petite or Stylish Petite, you know that clothing pieces that were previously thought to be a risk for petite women are in style and perfect for a small frame. While you’ll have to follow a few fashion rules to make sure you look your best in these clothing items, there are lots of options out there when you want to embrace chic summer style.

A midi dress falls mid-calf, which means it’s not as short as a mini skirt (which look great on petite women), but not as long as a maxi dress (which can be flattering on petite women if the skirt has a split). The midi dress has been featured on several petite fashion blogs because it can actually make you look a little taller, especially if the top half the dress is in a tank or halter style to show off your shoulders and arms. To finish off the look, you can wear sandals with a medium heel to elongate the legs even more, and a wide-brim hat to help make your neck and shoulders appear slender.

Palazzo pants are often not a wardrobe choice for petite women, since the legs of the pants are especially wide, which has the potential to shorten a petite frame. However, if you wear a tube-style top that shows off a little of your midsection, you can balance out the look of palazzo pants and make your body look longer. A medium, block-style heel works well with this look as well, and helps to give you a taller appearance while making it easier to walk without tripping over your pants. It’s also best to choose palazzo pants that are a solid color, since patterns can be a bit too much for a petite frame. Check out the navy blue palazzo pants in the Stylish Petite collection of petite fashion blogs to get a fashionable example of how to put the look together.
