Happy Tuesday, ladies! I know some women don’t wear shorts in the spring and summer, so they’re looking for options for warm weather. Capri jeans/pants were created as an alternative for shorts, but they do not flatter most women.
What’s the difference between Capri vs. Cropped jeans?
The capri hits the leg, usually, right through the top to the middle of the calf, making legs look stumpy and cutting the line of the body at its most awkward point.
Here are some examples of carpi jeans:
As you see, capris hit at the widest part of the leg, so you accentuate that area that is not attractive.
Designers also add embellishments that only cheapen the item further. They add things like oversized pockets, cargo straps, zippers, and grommets.
Cropped jeans/pants are a better option because they end just before the ankle. They accentuate the slimmest part of the leg, which is much more flattering.
This J.Crew pant is much more flattering with the cropped length than the above capri pant.
Here are some examples of cropped jeans:
What shoes work best with cropped jeans?
I have said it before, but nude/skin color shoes will always look best because they create a longer, leaner look. A slight heel also looks best, but flats are a nice option for summer.
Here are some ways I style crop jeans:
I recently styled a pair of Express jeans with a white eyelet top HERE.
I also styled a pair of off-white jeans; you can find the post HERE.
These J. Crew jeans are one of my favorites for spring. I love the cropped length and the lightwash. You can find this post HERE.
I hope this helped! Let me know your thoughts on Capri vs. Cropped.
