OK, here's the thing about capri's. They will look good on any height person IF the length is correct. I'm tall, and unless I get capris that are 25-28" they look totally wrong on me. The same would be true on a shorter person. Just don't let the capris hit you at the fattest part of your leg.

Great point! Actually most of my capris are a little longer so those would probably actually be crops? not ankle length, but a little longer than a capri, I guess..

Yes, I agree the fit/style makes a difference. I'm short, so I avoid the wide-leg capris, too.

I think a lot depends on the shoes you wear with capris, longer shorts and shorter skirts....the heel is what makes them flattering or not, I find.

All I am going to say is if the people who came up with these rules lived in a hot climate their fannies would be in shorts no matter what they looked like or how old they are. Sometimes it is just too hot to wear anything else!

Now, ladies, my busom is past its glory, by 26" waist is now low 30 something, but when I work out, my legs are truly nice. At least from the mid thigh down. Why must I make sure my skirts come down to the knees instead of a little higher,and why cant I wear my cute Ralph Lauren trouser or my Old Navy cargo style Capris this Summer? I am a tasteful, relatively fit gal ? What gives? Are the fashionistas afraid that I will don a stonewashed micro mini or dowdy Capris that look like polyester cruisewear? Why can't they trust women to assess their own figures and tastes and make good choices instead of issuing these mandates? Of course I will still be wearing what I think works for me. What do the rest of you think?
I don't know how on-topic this is, but I had a girlfriend--I'm not sure she was even 5 foot tall--who had to BUY capris so that they weren't too long for her legs!

I don't get why women over 40 shouldn't wear capris. I once worked with a stylish woman in her late 50s who never wore the same outfit twice. She was attractive, but tall, big-boned, and overweight (but carried her weight well). She told me she never wore shorts in the summer, only capris. Now to me that seems like a good rule for a woman of her age. I have a 78-year-old mother-in-law who has a great figure for her age and wears shorts all the time. But most 78-year-olds can't get away with that.
