Capris Trends Spring/Summer 2005

Despite the changes in fashion every year, capris will always be around for those uncomfortable with shorts but still want to look the season or just want something different. For clarity purpose, by capris, I mean 3/4 pants just below the knee, because otherwise it IS a bit confusing when pants come in all shapes and lengths these days. This season, the capris will still be around-but with a lot more attitude!

The absolute KEY to this season's capris is loose and stylishly tailored too. Like this white capris by Ralph Lauren and this orange striped capris by Marc Jacobs, both are loose but emaculately cut. The contrasting colored belts on each model serves to emphasize the slim waist despite all the looseness, giving it some shape. Also note how the Marc Jacobs capris are folded up to give it some layer and dimension.

Color and embellishment are also important. Color like this multicolored Cacharel capris. And embellishment like this Anna Sui capris with its heavily decorated charm belt.

For a more daring style, there is also the slimming but scruched up like this white one from D Squared 2. Or this loosely done but tight at the bottom capris by Emma Cook. When properly matched up, perhaps with something of a more street-like material like denim and heels, I am sure this won't look like a part of your pajamas.

Off the runway, this loose but very well tailored white capris by Robert Rodriguez is perfect. They are even folded up already!

Or these pink striped capris from Anthropologie, they too are folded. The pink also gives it a more feminine and ladylike quality.

Most importantly when wearing capris though is that unless you are a super model or are super tall, PLEASE don't wear capris with sneakers. They make you look short and stumpy. Pair them with heels to look glam or flats and sandals for a more casual look.

I especially love the Robert Rodriguez; the RL and MJ are really cool, too. They look comfortable! That orange is luscious.

Those Robert Rodriguez capris are a great find! I'm really loving the whole loose pant trend right now -- it seems so much more chic and comfortable than pouring oneself into too tight straight-leggers! Thanks for the perfect summary!

How I wish we could get Anthropologie clothes shipped to the UK. Those trousers are so cute!

I love, love, LOVE capris. I just got myself a fabulous pair (because my old ones fell apart after being much loved) at AE, with a beautiful little vintage fabric looking lining. I love them. Those last two are fabulous, may have to check them out.

I love the white Ralph Lauren capris with the tailored jacket. I’d wear that with the Mary Jane shoes in the Marc Jacobs photo...but maybe I’d want them to be in another color other than white...& that hat has got to go!

Hi, I was just blog surfing and found you! If you are interested, go see my 1940s fashion related site. It pretty much covers 1940s fashion stuff. I guess you may find something of interest.
