7. The Capri Pant
The capri pant, originally named after the Isle of Capri, became one of Audrey’s most talked about fashion statements in the 1950s. We are first introduced to the mid-calf, warm weather pant in the movie Sabrina. Audrey in a black top, matching black capris and her soon to be signature ballet flats stands before Humphrey Bogart disheartened. “Oh, I couldn’t possibly go anywhere” Sabrina exclaims to Linus Larabee as she gestures to her modest outfit. The outfit may not have been extravagant, but it surely made an impact. Capris became the it item. In her 1957 film Funny Face she is shown again wearing the popular pant. Dressed in a pink and white ensemble, Audrey once again makes a statement in a pair of white capris and soft pink slippers. Capris are the ideal summer pant, they can be worn casually with a simple top and a stylish straw hat or as an evening outfit with a fitted shirt and a pair of pearl earrings. This versatile pant is a seasonal stunner.
