50's Fashion Inspiration - Capri Pants

Among my favorite 50's fashion looks for summer are capri pants, also known as cropped pants.  Here are some inspiration photos. 

To make them work for your body type, consider these tips.  Avoid capri's that hit at the largest part of the calf, especially if you are petite.  They should end at the smaller part of the leg. The most flattering capri's on everyone are those with a straight, slim (but not tight) leg.  If you have ample hips and a smaller bust, wear them with a loose top and choose ones in a solid, darker color.  Ballet flats or sandals are the perfect compliment, depending on the look you want.  The more dramatic personality may wear them with heels.
