So, where do we start? Let’s start with appropriateness: Capris are increasingly common Summertime attire in business casual offices these days. As with so many things, there are more or less casual variations, based on fabric, length and embellishments. If it is not extremely common to wear them at your employer, I recommend … DON’T wear them at all. They are automatically more casual than long pants or a skirt. You do not want to be among the most casual person in the office, at least not if you have plans for advancement. On to fit: If you are like most of us, and want to look slimmer, look for a length that ends just below the knee (most casual length, so be careful) or close to the ankle. In both instances the hem bisects your lower leg at the narrowest places. If you have slim calves and want to add a little weight to them, have the hem land at the widest spot, to add some visual width. Remember balance: Tight and tapered does not flatter most any body, but especially those with proportionally larger bottoms (hips, thighs, butt). A slight flare or slightly less taper will often show (add) curves, while adding some balance to those curves. Also, let’s consider depth of color – to minimize your proportionally largest area (top or bottom), wear your darkest color there. Darker colors draw less attention – the eye will be drawn first to whichever clothing is the lightest color.
