Nowadays, there’s no shortage of pants for women – we’ve got skinny legs and wide legs, pleats and palazzos, cargo and disco – the list goes on and on! However, one of the most undersung styles is the capri. Also known as pedal pushers, these cropped pants are one of the many trends from the early 2000s making a major comeback this year. For everyone out there who may be hesitant to try this trend, we’ve got a few different ways to style capri pants!
Cargo and Capri Pants: A Love Story
For a sporty daytime look, we styled these khaki cargo capri pants (cargo is another trend to look out for this season!) with a printed crop top and illustrated coach’s jacket. Finish the outfit off with a pair of velvet loafers in a matching shade of royal blue for a look that’s casual but still perfectly put together.
That’s a Wrap: Tie Waists
If you’re new to mixing patterns, we suggest matching your main pieces with the same color – here, we mixed a striped pair of mustard and hunter green tie-waist capri pants with a polka-dotted wrap blouse in the same hunter green. Become a pattern mixing pro by topping off with a subtle snakeprint mule!
Power Clashing Capri Pants
Are you ready to take your capri pants to the next level? Plaid pants with a ruffled hem will do the trick! Go bold with an abstract cheetah print blouse and tortoise shell flats – the key is to keep your colors neutral and accessories minimal. This look isn’t busy – it means business!
Turn Up The Volume!
Capri pants come in all different shapes and drama is the name of the game with these culottes! A wide leg, simple pleat and rich cranberry color are exactly what you need for a fantastic cool-weather look. A long sleeve striped blouse with a smocked waist plays up the volume of the pant and a cheetah print ankle bootie balances the whole look.
Capri It Simple
Rounding out our capri countdown, we have a pair of cropped blue jeans! These jeans are sure to replace your go-to cuffed jeans, with an exciting asymmetrical fringed hemline. For a pop of color, a ‘70s botanical blouse pairs perfectly with maroon loafers and a timeless navy blazer.
As you can see, capri pants are an excellent option for staying stylish through the occasionally unpredictable temperatures of autumn when paired with smart layers and trendy footwear.
