Our Favourites: Women's Cropped Capri Pants

Helen's Choice

"I adore trousers but when the temperature begins to soar, long styles are often just too uncomfortable. This is the time I move to cropped pants or capri's - but they need to be stylish, easy to wear and suitable to take me from day to night, from beach to dinner.

Recently I have found my 'perfect' capri made with a combination of 70% viscose, 24% nylon and 6% lycra. Why that material mix you might wonder, but I've found it means they:

  • Hold their shape year after year
  • Wash on a cool temperature or hand-wash easily
  • Dry quickly
  • Barely need ironing, if at all
  • Are very packable - they fold up small for travelling and they don't crease
  • Feel cool in the heat, and warm when it cools down
  • Come in a wide range of colours
  • And in the latest fashion styles

The ones I love are made by Eileen Fisher.

For ease and comfort they pull on, so no bulky front zip to worry about. However unlike many elasticated waist trousers these have a hidden stretch waist band - so you would never know they were pull-ons.

They hug, flatter and fit perfectly!"
