Oh, you love your leggings! They’re super comfy, lightweight, they’re black, and they’re slimming. But aren’t they just too darn dark, too hot, and too heavy looking to wear in summer? If you are not ready to give up on leggings just because temperatures are rising, the answer may be to switch to something very similar: capris leggings.
Capris leggings are just like leggings, but shorter. They end at the knee, just below the knee, and some even go several inches above the ankle. Like regular length leggings, they look great with long tops, tunics, and long shirts and shirtdresses.
Instead of wearing them with ankle booties or tall boots like you do in winter, throw on a pair of cute sandals or slides. Wondering what to wear with capris leggings? Here are three stylish ways to look classy and cool in capris leggings this spring and summer.
1. Capris Leggings and Flowy Tunic
A long blouse or flowy tunic is a fabulous way to bring some spring and summer life into a pair of black capris leggings. This wavy print tunic is modern and fresh and looks sophisticated, paired with black leggings, a gorgeous black bag, and black slides. Who knew leggings could look so chic?
2. Capris Leggings and a Button-Up Shirt
A colorful top pairs well with capris leggings and this hot pink button-up shirt is a good example of that. This cool linen shirt is perfect for hot weather when you want to look and feel cool in every sense of the word. Wear this outfit with white shoes and accessories to pump up the pink and show off the high-contrast look. This outfit has a festive feel without looking cutesy.
3. Capris Leggings and an Oversized T-shirt
An oversized tee looks great with capris leggings, but not any old t-shirt will do. This desert rust top with the bold eyelet embellishment is fun and fashion-forward. It looks great paired with rope sandals and a suede bag to play up that southwest feel.
