How to Wear Capri Pants Right

Though capri pants are popular casual wear in summer, they are not suitable for everyone, and it is important to wear capri pants right.

In recent years, capri pants have become one of the most popular casual wear for women of all ages, especially during summer. However, capri pants are not suitable for everyone, and it is essential to wear capri pants right to avoid a major fashion blunder.  The capri pants should be selected and worn correctly based on the height and body shape of the woman, so as to flatter the appearance of the wearer, not highlight the negative aspects of the wearer like making a short woman look shorter.

How to Wear Capri Pants Right

Length of capri pants

One of the major considerations is the length of the capri pants. Longer capri pants which end just above the ankles are suitable for women who are taller, while shorter women would look better in capri pants which reach the thinnest part of the calves as this would make the legs look longer.

Cut and design

Unless a woman is very tall and thin, it is better to wear capri pants that have a slim cut and fit the legs right. This will make the legs look longer, while capri pants with flared ends will create an illusion of thicker legs and are suitable for very thin legs. Pockets are suitable for thin legs, as the legs appear to be thicker


Though dark colors like black and brown make the legs look longer, these are not very suitable for casual wear. Using nude tones like biege or light brown, matched to skin color or pastel shades will allow the capri pants to be matched with different types of tops and accessories


The capri pants should be worn with tops that highlight the positive features of wearer, and hide the negative aspects. So slim women should wear tops tucked in at the waist, while heavier women should hide their bottom using a longer top.
