Wear Capri Pants with Confidence1

Some ladies feel capris make them look frumpy, and they can if you make the wrong choice. At the Boutique we often hear: “I’m too short to wear capris.” Yes, it can be tricky, but we’re going to help you out with some style tips! The reality is that capris can look great on¬†anyone tall or short! It’s a matter of finding the right proportions for you.

LENGTH: Avoid capris that end at mid-calf as this is the widest part of your lower leg. Do wear them just below that – between your calf and ankle is the ideal hem length. You want the eye to flow down to the narrowest part of the leg for the most flattering look.

WIDTH: To create a longer, sleeker look, wear a tapered or straight leg capri. Baggier, wide-leg capris are suited for those who are a bit heavier in the thigh.

WAIST: It may be counter-intuitive, but if you have shorter legs, try a higher waist. This draws the eye up and helps the leg appear longer. If you have a short torso, wear a mid-rise capri to achieve balance.

SHOES: Short legs look best with a bit of a heel. This elongates your exposed calf. For everyone, nude shoes help your legs appear longer as they blend in with your skin tone. The second-best shoe choice is the same colour as your capri.

Capris are a comfortable and versatile pant option. We now see people wearing them to casual weddings, paired with a fancy top. Remember, we look best when we style according to our body’s proportions.
