Why every petite girl needs a pair of palazzo trousers

Standing at a whopping 5 ft 2 (and a half), I'm always looking for ways to make myself look taller. Don't get me wrong, I love my height, but I've often looked at the long legs of models and imagined what it would be like to be able to reach the top shelf of my kitchen cupboards! I'm a firm believer in high waisted EVERYTHING and so, when the palazzo trouser trend came about, I was definitely intrigued.

I've been quite slow to jump on the bandwagon though. Why? Because I couldn't work out whether the super wide legs of the trousers would drown my little ones... but as it's almost the new year (and of course that's when all your fashion faux pas get left behind!) I thought I'd give a pair a go.


I am well and truly converted! I was worried that the free-flowing style would make me feel boxy compared to the skinny fit I'm used to, but it definitely didn't. Styled with a simple vest top and pair of heels, I felt elegant and... actually quite tall! The pair I'm wearing, available here from Wearall came with a tie belt - which I really loved to cinch in my waist and accentuate the flare of the trousers.

How do you feel about the palazzo trouser trend? Will you be joining me wearing them in 2018?
