It’s impossible to get through the week these days, without the return of another 00s classic style reclaiming its place in our wardrobe. This week, it’s the turn of the capri pant (or should we say pedal pusher?) to re-enter the style arena, and before you raise your eyebrows, we promise you’re going to want to wear them all spring and summer long.

Brought back in style, partly due to TikTok’s mob wife aesthetic and partly due to celebs, like Em Rata and Gigi Hadid, who both can’t stop rocking the cropped style, the capri pant is fast becoming the trouser style to be seen in. And it’s no wonder why, they’re chic, comfortable and come in an array of styles from smart tailored cuts to easy-to-wear denim.

If you didn’t wear them the first time around, you’re most likely wondering what exactly is a capri pant. Well, the main feature that makes them so iconic is their length, as they finish just below the knee similar to a long line short. They also sit close to the body for a figure-hugging fit usually in a stretchy fabric for added snugness.

Wondering how to style capri pants? While you can pair them with cami tops and crop tops for a true 00s look, we’d suggest wearing capri pants with more oversized styles to bring the look into 2024. Em Rata regularly pairs her capris with a menswear-inspired oversized blazer and bralette to cleverly play with the proportions, or try half tucking an oversized white shirt for an effortless Parisian-inspired look.
