I love capri pants because I usually don't like shorts for summer - I think they look great on me because I am so tall! I am 6 feet and have long legs. Anyways, most shorts are way too short for me so capri pants are a great option on warm days.

I don't think I've ever met a woman who looks good in capri pants. They do nothing for your legs!

Enh...this pair doesn't speak to me. But if you ladies want a pair that's more 'stroll in the park' casual, Old Navy is a most definite place to go to. ;)

i love them too! I was lucky enough to visit the Island of Capri once. I learned taht the locals don't say it like we say capri. they say CAP-ree. So now I always get tripped up on the word and I can't say it at all.

I LOVE capris! Even though I'm 5 even, and supposedly they're a no-no for me.

This capri jeans is extremely overpriced. I am not fond of capri pants. If you're petite, it will cut you off visually thus shortening your legs.

I love wearing Capri pants, since you can so easily dress it up or down.
