Iâ€™ve come around on capris in recent years, more because plus size designers are making longer tops available than because of any shift in my personal style. When youâ€™re a bellied plus size as I am, capris still have an unfortunate barrels-and-suspender quality when worn with a shorter shirt, or something that demands a tuck-in. It may not look like this to others, but this how I feel in them when dressed that way:
As you can see, not really what I’m going for.
However, given the right fit and a little patience, Iâ€™ve learned to live with them. After all, if Iâ€™m on a Nice Ride bike, Iâ€™d rather wear pedal pushers than do that thing where you only roll up one leg of your pants. Have you noticed how many people roll up the wrong leg?
