Shorts and Capri trousers for women are a great choice for warm days. The short length provides comfortable legroom while keeping you cool. Many great styles and designs for lots of variety in your wardrobe. Create a new look every day with Esprit Capri trousers, jeans shorts and shorts.
Your new favourite trousers throughout the summer
Are you looking for an alternative to a summer dress or skirt? We highly recommend women's shorts and Capri trousers. They come in many different fits, can be combined in many different ways and so are always exactly what you wanted to find.
Capri trousers – with elegant greetings from the '50s
Capri trousers are the right choice if you are looking for something pleasantly light for cooler days, but do not want to show too much skin. Capri trousers end below the knee anywhere from the middle of the calf to the ankle. They are often slit at the hem. Capri trousers are also called ¾ length trousers because of their characteristic length. Being tight-fitting, they are suitable for every figure type. Would you like them cut a little wider? Culottes are an alternative to Capri trousers.
In a nutshell: shorts for women
What a great thing it is that there are so many varieties of shorts! Shorts are an integral part of our summer wardrobe: wear almost knee-length Bermuda shorts in the office. We like to be seen especially in short and tight hot pants during hot summer days and party nights. Wide shorts made from flowing fabrics are casually elegant. Uncomplicated all-rounders such as jeans shorts and stretch designs are an absolute must. Paperbag shorts make your waist look perfect. Surfer shorts and cycling shorts are sporty and casual.
Shorts that will fit
Every figure is perfect for shorts – you just have to find the right design that conceals problem areas and enhances your looks. Here we show you which cut is ideal for your figure.
- Wider thighs: shorts and Capri trousers with a straight cut and loose fit make your legs look slimmer. Best made from airy linen or cotton, which are pleasant on the skin and breathable.
- Shorter legs: Short trousers can make you look longer. Cut-off Capri trousers or fluttering fabric shorts look just as great as tight-fitting jeans shorts. For endless long legs, wear your high waist shorts with high shoes.
- Wide hips: here, the best tip is to choose flowing fabrics. Try for example with classic or chino shorts. Ideally, combine them with a wide top to draw attention away from the hips. Even tight Capri shorts work best with figure-flattering tops.
Style shorts and Capri trousers in the right way
Capri trousers and shorts can be worn in a variety of ways, and ensure that you are well dressed for all temperatures and activities in summer.
Audrey Hepburn style at the office
Black, plain Capri trousers, a clean short sleeve blouse and ballerina shoes, maybe a stylish handbag – these make your three-quarter trousers very elegant with little effort. And suitable for the office. Of course, the short suit trousers also earn points at the office. With an elegant t-shirt and summery blazer plus ballerina shoes, longer high-waist shorts made from flowing fabrics become a stylish office outfit.
Relaxed and elegant at the beach
A beautiful day at the beach awaits you! Celebrate it with light cotton Capri trousers in bright colours or denim. Women's tops and light blouses go with it. Shorts fit loosely in your swim bag. Practical... simply pull jeans shorts over your bikini, combine it with a tunic – and your summery beach bar outfit is ready.
All in white
White gives you plenty of fashionable freedom. Invited to a summer festival? White Capri trousers with a top or a pretty blouse are the perfect companions. You can combine white shorts with striped long sleeve shirts for a navy look, elegant with a black silk t-shirt and extravagant with a print shirt.
The right shoes for Capri trousers and shorts
The length of your legs and your figure are a factor here. Basically, intermediate lengths such as ¾ length Capri trousers make the leg look shorter. Summer shoes with heels compensate for this. Short trousers show a lot of leg and therefore stretch your figure a little. You can wear your ballerina shoes, slip-ons or flat sandals with them. But here wedge sandals go one better.
Through the colder seasons with shorts and Capri trousers
The season for shorts doesn't automatically end with the last sunrays. You can also wear your summer favourites in winter. Worn casually with opaque stockings, a long sleeve shirt and boots. Chic with a blouse and pumps. Capri trousers can be worn with cool boots, a blazer for the office and a trendy sweatshirt for meeting friends. Alternatively, switch to autumn women's shorts made from wool or corduroy and women's Capri trousers made from jeans or slightly thicker cotton.
