On HAL, you will see some nice outfits put together with capri pants, heels, nice top, jewelry and the ladies look fine.

I have always considered capris to be casual, not smart casual. Many companies with a business/smart casual dress code specifically prohibit capris.


Autocorrect responsible for most typos...

I spent three weeks in Europe with a 20" roll aboard and a tote bag and never missed all the "stuff" I didn't bring. See how I did it here.

Dress capris are perfectly acceptable in the west and southwest as business dress, especially when the temps hit 90 and above. No hose, heels, dressy top, perfect.

If capris are considered appropriate for women on smart casual nites ... what's everyone's take on manpris? They essentially are capris for men.
