How to wear capris up North

Wearing capri is tricky for any lady of 40+. Capri draw the attention to the lower leg. To pull this style off we really have to discard those capris that hit at an unfavorable point. It is important to avoid that they hit where the calf is the widest.

On my boyish body and with my fair skin, it seems to be more flattering to go for a neutral than “look at me” bold color. The silk floral tank top draws the eye and attention up. For chilly AC or morning and evening hours I added a cardigan to not feel cold. Who wants to be reminded of winter in summer? This leopard cardigan works for two reasons. First leopard print is sort of a neutral to begin with. Second it picks up the shades of the capri, and floral top.

The look would become office appropriate in a casual work environment with pointy toe flat or a low heeled pair of pumps. As is the look is nice for a stroll on the town in a vacation resort or an afternoon in the park. It is also a nice weekend look to give your jeans a rest.
