Capri pants have been around since the 1950s and have come and gone in fashion. These types of pants have been considered to be difficult when it comes to styling. However, like all things in fashion, there’s a way of styling capri pants. Capri pants can be described as tapered pants with a hemline that sits close to the legs. When styling capris, it is important to remember that the length of the pants can make or break your look. Capri pants need to end above your ankles. Often shorter women have problems styling capri pants, but the trick to keep in mind is to opt for shorter capris and reveal more skin as that elongates the legs.
For both tall and short women, the most important rule to remember is that capris should land at the thinnest part of your leg. Now let’s discuss how to wear and style capris for a flattering look.
Since capri pants come in a wide variety of colours, they are a great way to brighten up your wardrobe. This look is for all those looking for a laid back yet effortlessly chic ensemble. Another trick to add length to the body is to tuck in the shirt into the capris.
