Your blog is amazing and very helpful! At 5ft 6in I am not particularly short, but I suppose us ladies always wish we were a little bit taller! I am thrilled to be able to throw some capris in the mix, because that style does seem to suit my stay-at-home-mom, lifestyle.
Lovely to read your positive feedback. Enjoy wearing your capris and I look forward to connecting with you further on the site. Hi Sylvia, I love your website and this article was great! I agree, I have seen alot of bad capris out there. Can I get away with capris? If so, what tips mentioned would apply to me? Thanks for the help, Tracy. Yes, it sounds like you are. I would apply all 4 tips high shoes not always necessary , but just have a good look in the mirror.
These guidelines are not set in stone and everyone is different. Have a good look at the silhouette you are creating. If it pleases you then you are on the right track!
Living in Florida, capris are a year-long staple for me. I especially like pairing capris with a waist-slimming top that make my short body look longer, taller and more shapely.
Thanks for the tips! I was actually trying to figure out what kind of socks to wear with capris and lightweight tennis shoes when I found your blog.
There will be a lot of walking, so wearing heels is out of the question. Thanks for sharing your advice and the pictures it helps to have the visual cues. If you like wearing them and they make you feel happy you can still wear them Sirena! I want a pair!! Just try a few variations in front of the mirror and see what works! I love these tips!

You are drowning in a huge top in most of them. At the very beginning of the article you say to wear a short top with CaprIs which I would agree with then you go on to model very unflattering looks, the tunic top is particularly hideous. I am going to ear mine with a crisp white fitted shirt or a neat jumper or cardigan. I do agree that close fitted tops with short cardigans are under represented on this page and would look great with capris.
Feel free to send me your pictures so I can add them to the roundup! Living in Florida, clam diggers or capris are how to dress for hot weather when shorts are too casual.
Many women use them to camaflouge aging legs. Now I know what to avoid, though: The key is slim cut. I had suspected this, but you confirmed it. I have always worn a pair of my black capris to work with a heel or wedge and never had a problem. The other day I wore them they are mid-calf and I have skinny ankles at my new job, which is still business casual like the others, with a belt, cute black and white wedges and a nice white knitted top and my boss had a closed door meeting to me about it.
I was completely taken aback and never have I been talked to about my outfit in 20 years! She almost told me to not attend an informal meeting because of it too.
Just make sure your boss agrees. I agree with you Nancy. It depends on the quality of the capris of course and the way you combined them with your other clothes, but like you I feel they would look chicer in many cases than a short skirt certainly when that skirt is worn with high heeled boots.

If you like the look of wide trousers I do then go for a full leg, but for cropped pants and capris I stay to a very tight leg line. One way to overcome the leg shortening effect is to wear higher heels. Wide cropped pants especially look better with heels. Try to create a rule of thirds with your dressing. If there is not too much contrast between your shoes and your legs, your legs will appear longer.
Shoes without straps are more leg lengthening as well. I feel this still works when I wear heels, but if your legs are very short you may want to apply this tip as well.
Higher booties are very effective with cropped pants and stop the shortening effect of cropped pants, especially if you choose them in the same color as your pants. When wearing cropped pants that are flared or wider, be sure to wear a shorter top. High waisted cropped pants look fabulous with tops that end at the waist.
