As my fellow millennials will relate to, I practically lived in capri pants in the 90s and early 2000s. Sometimes called pedal pushers or clam diggers, capris have ebbed and flowed in popularity over the years, beginning in the 50s when Audrey Hepburn made them her signature. Back in the 80s, no one looked chicer in capri pants than Princess Diana.

Photographed at a polo match in May 1983, Princess Diana styled the trend with a billowy white blouse and a red sweater tied nonchalantly over her shoulders. She completed the look with low-heeled red pumps. As we’ve extensively reported, capri pants are officially back and bigger than ever in 2024. They were featured heavily in the S/S 24 runway collections, including at Tory Burch, Mirror Palais, and Theory, to name a few. Ready to get in on the action? Scroll down to shop my favourite pairs.
