When I learned that colorful, printed pants were a major trend for this season, I let out a groan. Pants are hands-down the most difficult article of clothing for me to find, fit-wise, when shopping. I have a short inseam and narrow hips, which means that pretty much every pair of pants I buy needs serious alterations before I can wear them. I was consequently delighted to realize that capri and ankle-length pants were everywhere in stores. This means that I can buy a pair that would normally be capri pants on an average-height person and wear them as full- or ankle-length pants on me, no hemming necessary.

These H&M polka-dot pants probably will still require some alterations to make them fit perfectly, so I may hem them to capri-length, but I was happy to be able to wear them now. Readers, what do you think--keep them at their present length or hem them to be longer capri pants?
