I had a crazy thought this past weekend. I can turn my boring old skinny jeans into capri pants with a few snips of the scissors!
Granted, it’s easy to feel like every pair of pants are capri pants when you’re 5’10”. So if they’re about to have a fashion comeback, I’ll be the first to jump on that bandwagon! Culottes have had their moment; but really, culottes were just wide-leg capris anyway, right?
Leandra and the Man Repeller squad predicted the adoption of capri pants during the previous “Fashion Month,” and I’ll admit that at first I thought she might be too ambitious in her trend forecasting. But alas, here I am about to DIY my own pair. It appears that the most fashion-forward way to wear the capri is to find one cropped just below the kneecap or mid-calf with a compliment flare. Isa Arfen (shown below) and Totême are the clear frontrunners in this game of cropped pants.
Are you a capri pant convert? They really are the best of both worlds, if those worlds are pants and shorts…
