Should petite, 5 ft., ladies wear gauchos?
I love the way they look on others but I fear it is a look I cannot pull off.
Thanks for your advice.
If there is a trend, there is way! I did a little online shopping for you and www.nordstrom.com has tons of gauchos for petites. The key to gauchos on a small frame, is to keep from making yourself look short and stumpy. Here are some things to keep in mind when wearing gauchos.
If you find yourself standing in the dressing room and you feel you look like a fool. Here are some other options for you to try: culottes or a slimmer cropped pant (examples pictured below)
