How do I choose the right capris for my body type?

Capri pants are a stylish and comfortable hot-weather alternative to full-length pants. They are cropped below the knee and usually cut to be slim-fitting through the waist, hip, and leg. Capris channel timeless elegance and are easy and versatile to style. Dress them up with a stunning top and heels for an al fresco lunch at your favorite restaurant. Or dress them down with a simple tee and flats for vacation chic.

Don’t worry if you are a little unsure about how to choose the right pair of capris to flatter your body type, we can help. It’s all about creating a sense of balance in your overall silhouette.

  • Petite: For ladies who want to add a little extra height, an easy way to elongate your figure is to go for capri pants with a high or mid-rise. The slim cut and extra rise will create a long, lean line that instantly makes you look taller, especially if you accessorize with a wedge or nude-colored heel. Accentuate this effect further by tucking or half tucking your top into your pants, or by adding a belt that cinches you in at the waist for that extra-leggy look.
  • Tall: If you are tall, capri pants are a great choice and there are lots of styling options that you can pull off with panache. Mix and match your top to suit your mood and the occasion. Capris topped off with a tunic and flats gives an easy-going summery vibe. Or go for the wow factor with a slinky fitted top teamed with a pair of killer heels and some statement jewelry.
  • Curvy: capri pants are a wonderful way to show off your curves, as they are close-fitting through the waist, hip, and leg. Opt for a mid or high-rise capri to accentuate the narrowest part of your body. Dial up this effect by belting or tucking in your top to create an ultra-feminine silhouette. Top off your outfit with a short or bolero jacket for a polished daytime look.

What do I need to know when shopping for capri pants & shorts?

Whatever your size or shape, a few simple pointers will ensure you choose the pair of capri pants or shorts for you. Here are a few tips to help you find the perfect ones that will make you look and feel fabulous.

  • The most flattering length for a capri pant is one that hits at the narrowest part of your lower leg. For most women this will be just below the knee to optically slim and lengthen. If you are worried about short or heavy-set legs, avoid capris that finish at the widest point of your calf or have them tailored to a shorter length.
  • For the leggiest look with both capris and shorts, wear wedges or nude-colored shoes with heels. Achieve a similar effect with flats by opting for sandals in a nude or natural leather that visually blends with your feet for an elongating effect.
  • If your capri pants or short have side pockets, check that they lie flat on your hip to keep your look sleek.
