Capri Pants Vs. Cropped Pants

The difference between capri and cropped trousers is their length and flare cut. Capri pants end at mid-calf and are flared. Cropped trousers are longer and end just above the ankle. Their cut is narrower to have a better form fit. Trousers that hit below the knee to the mid-calf are called walking shorts.

Cropped Pants Versatility

Cropped trousers are a versatile piece of clothing that you can wear for leisure or more dressy occasions. Neutral colours provide the opportunity to wear the cropped trousers with numerous colours and styles of tops. Dress them up by putting on a pair of heels to extend the length of the legs. Dress them down by wearing flats or sandals.

Capri Pants

Capri pants are tricky to wear. Capri pants will emphasise the physical attributes of the individual wearing them. You can emphasise your height, weight and/or shape of the person by the length and flare of the capri. Emphasis from the capri pants will make a petite women look shorter, a pear-shaped women look heavier, a short-legged woman look shorter and an individual with muscular legs look thicker.

Cool Nights

Either a pair of cropped or capri pants are excellent for cool nights. They provide more leg covering than shorts but are cooler than jeans. Warm days can turn into cool nights. The style of both pairs of trousers accommodates the switch in temperature without looking out of place.

Cropped Pant Cut

The best cropped pant cut is one that has a tapered or straight leg cut. The wider-cut cropped trousers with a drawstring are the least flattering in the cropped pant category. The bagginess of this cut adds pounds to the lower half of the body and makes the individual look shorter.

Best Fit

The tapered cut in both the capri pants and cropped trousers is the wisest choice to flatter body shape. Individuals with a larger bottom should consider wearing the straight legs to add a little more width to the bottom of the body. This will balance out the body weight and provide a flattering look.
