Often men with short height put a lot of thought before trying any new style and in most of the cases avoid it. Here in this post will be discussing all the problems and their solutions with an apt explanation to it. Men ethnic wear whether you talk about Sherwani, Jodhpurs, Kurta, Dhoti etc are mainly confide to one’s wedding. If you too have a doubt about will Sherwani look good on you then read below and ace up your ethnic fashion game.
It’s a fact that slim people look more taller then people who are heavier on size. While picking your wedding outfit look for slim fit outfits that rest perfectly on your body structure. Going a size bigger then your true size will give you a wider appearance and in turn will make you appear shorter.
Avoid longer length kurtas and try kurtas which ends above your knee length. The idea is to make your legs appear longer. Long length kurtas will make your legs look smaller.
Some might be thinking how collars can affect your appearance. So dear readers wide collars gives a broad effect to your shoulders and gives a wider appearance which in turn reduces your overall length. However in most of the Sherwani you would see high neck collars. The same rule applies to that also. One needs to keep the width of the collar shorter and it should not completely hide your neck. Shahid did it in a right way and in the other image the collars looked quite large.
If you are thinking of pairing your kurta with some contrasting jackets, you can surely go for it. But keep their length shorter and check that it does not cover whole of your butt. The idea is to make your legs look more longer.

‘Chudidars’ are the long length pants which have narrow fit and the excess of length falls into beautiful folds near the ankle. But they are a big no for shorter men as they steal away the height. Instead of it you can try well tapered payjama which ends just above the ankle.
While finalising your colors don’t go for more then two shades and trying monochromatic look is the best option. Going for one shade helps you in staying away from color block and rest you all know. You can try emboidered sherwaani with plain pants.
Don’t go for large prints and small prints and small embroidered booti will look good on you. Vertical Stripes are the shorter guy’s print and you can add them to your list.
This last point is for those guys who are thinking of wearing formal suit. While picking a pant go for mid rise pants that makes you legs appear longer. Any style that is medium rise or high rise will work good on you and never experiment with low rise pants.
