40, single, and mormon, are you KIDDING me?
My old BF Bill ranted about that constantly. And, let's be honest, most of them aren't really flattering on most people.
I asked my husband. He said, "I like capris! You look good in capris. You wore capris on our first date." Ha ha! I didn't even remember that little detail. Maybe he's one of the few.
I hate them. They make my butt look HUGE!
ha ha blain! what do you think of them on women, captain hilarious?
Okay, speaking for myself and a category of guys -- I really don't care about them. I'm not even sure what they are. I think they're the kind that go mid-calf. My daughter tells me that they never go much past the knee. I think they might strike me as a bit on the cutesy side, but I'm not sure. I don't remember looking at someone and going "Wow! She really looks great in those pants that don't go much past the knee!" And I don't remember going "Wow! She'd really look pretty if she wasn't wearing those pants that don't go much past the knee!" Unless it's something that obviously doesn't work, or is eye-catching for some reason (like neon or really tight) it's not something that's going to jump up into my attention span that much. And I can only pay so much attention before it becomes staring and the weird. Especially below the waist-line. I know this is the wrong answer. I'm more likely to notice what clothing says about the body its on than I am the clothing itself, if it draws my attention at all. Capris v stirrup pants v pedal pushers v culottes v skorts are distinctions I'm not sure I can make. Mostly, women who wear them seem to understand the principles behind wearing them that make them not-hideous, with the more fashion conscious probably making them look better than not. I might comment to my sister or daughter if we're watching TV and someone comes out in something eye-catching, but that's going to have to do with the specific thing than its category.I appreciate the effort that goes into making this work, though.
i PRAY that stirrup pants never come back in style. they are a tall girl's worst nightmare when it comes to pants. capris(mid calf or a little lower)are a tall girls BEST FRIEND.i know you dont care, but...pedal pushers go just below the knee, while bermuda shorts are right above. culottes are like pedal pushers, maybe a little longer, but very wide legs. before i went to the temple, i loved skorts, but they are just too short for g's. even the modest ones, the longest they go is mid thigh.so many choices...
