It’s almost time to pull out cute dresses, skirts, and shorts for spring and summer. I always get questions about capri vs. cropped pants. What’s the difference, and how do we wear them?
Capri jeans/pants were created as an alternative to shorts, but they typically don’t flatter most women. If you want a pant or jean that is more flattering, cropped is a better alternative, whether it’s a wide leg or straight.
What’s the difference between Capri vs. Cropped?
The capri hits the leg right through the top to the middle of the calf, making the legs look stumpy and cutting the line of the body at an awkward point.
Even if you have skinny legs, the capri style is still not the most flattering pant. Capris chop off your leg, which can make you look frumpy.
Here are some examples of carpi pants and jeans:
As you see, capris hit the widest part of the leg, accentuating that area.
These capris are patterned, which doesn’t help the look.
Here are some examples of cropped jeans and pants:
Cropped jeans/pants hit just before the ankle and accentuate the slimmest part of the leg.
These pants are from Madewell and have a cropped length.
Here are more examples of cropped pants/jeans:
What shoes work best with cropped jeans?
Nude/skin color shoes will always look best because they create a longer, leaner look. A slight heel also elongates our legs, but flats are a nice option. This year colorful sandals and wedge heels are trending.
Here are some crop jeans and pants I recently styled:

Beauty For the Heart™~~ The council members were astonished as they witnessed the bold courage of Peter and John, especially when they discovered that they were just ordinary men who had never had religious training. Then they began to understand the effect Jesus had on them simply by spending time with Him. Acts 4:13 TPT
Truth: Peter and John were ordinary men, but people saw a difference in them because they spent time with Jesus. Like Peter and John, our countenance changes when we spend time with Jesus.
There’s a beautifying process when a woman is covered in the grace of God. A sparkle will appear in her eyes, and you’ll notice a radiance about her.
This beauty is a gift from God. Lipstick and blush fade, but spiritual beauty is timeless.
Deeper Study: Read Acts 4: 1-37
