Another alteration in My Closet-Olive Capris

Yes, these are capris, and yes, I know that they are not the most flattering.

There are some redeeming qualities, the olive color, they lay nice and flat at the stomach and I like the thick band that go up either side. (Maybe hard to see?) So I think they'll work out fine as shorts.

Problem is, I'm really unsure about the length I should hem them up to.

A knee length walking short is still suitable for most situations but does it look as dumpy as the original capri?

Mid thigh is maybe my least favorite. To me it some how makes my legs look shorter...is that possible?

And last but not least, shorter than the last picture and cuffed. Maybe too casual? Do I look like I'm going to camp?

Help!!!

I say hack them really short and show of your legs! I am totally in a hacking up clothes mood lately I have a whole bag that just arent quite right! With jeans cut offs I always cut an inch or so above the knee and then just turn them up so I can have shortish or super short if I turn them up even more!

I like the last picture the best, i.e. cut 'em short! I think they look great no matter which way you cut/leave them, but I'm liking the short look! :)

I think the middle pic is the perfect length.

I like the 3rd option :)

The fabric is too casual to wear these in a dressy way no matter what the length, so I'd say go with the mid-length short.

Are these from the Gap? I think I have them in brown -- and I think I might steal this idea from you!

I'm a city short kind of gal, so the very first short look is my favourite!

I hope i'm not too late!!! but I like them the shortest the best. Don't worry about it being to casual because with a nice pair of heels, belt and some fancy accessories it can easily make those shorts worthy of any occasion!
