Capri Pants by Any Other Name...
You'll find that capri pants go by many names. Cropped pants, pedal pushers, and clam-diggers are just a few of the more common ways of describing these bottoms. They're usually loose-fitting, and they come down longer than shorts but shorter than full-length pants, usually falling to midway between the knee and calf or knee and ankle.
In 1948, designer Sonja de Lennart introduced Capri trousers, naming them after the Italian Isle of Capri. Their popularity grew as celebrities like Grace Kelly appeared in them. But it was Mary Tyler Moore wearing them on "The Dick Van Dyke Show" that boosted capris into the forefront of American fashion in the 1960s. Despite ebbs and flows in popularity, these bottoms remain a staple in the well-rounded wardrobe of American women.
The Versatility of Capri Pants
If the occasion is too formal for shorts but not formal enough for business casual, a great pair of capri pants just might be the answer. Many find them more flattering than shorts, and they're available in everything from linen to spandex to denim capris, so they round out a wardrobe nicely. Whether you prefer the look of skinny pants or flare pants, you can wear them with pride to a picnic, a backyard barbecue, or just for running errands around town. Pair them with your favorite sneakers or sandals to complete the look.
