What Are Capri Pants?

Capri pants are pants that are longer then shorts but not as long as trousers. Capri pants or crop pants can be use as a term for any cropped slim pants but let’s not forget that fashion can be anything you desire, so they don’t have to be slim anymore. In fact you can see people wearing wide leg capri pants. So first of all let’s look at their history. Capri pants were invented by a woman called “Sonja de Lennart” in the 1945. The name “capri” is the name of an Italian island.

In fact she named her collection of capri pants after her favourite place for holidays – Capri Island. Since then, back in the ‘50s people loved them so much. She gave women to wear something different to wear other then wide masculine pants. And capri pants became favorite for some of the biggest names we all know; Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly and more.
