Capri pants
(often just called capris) are a style of trousers worn primarily by young women during the summer. They are designed to end near the mid-calf or just below the calf.

Capri pants became popular in the United States during the 1960's, largely due to the influence of the popular television series The Dick Van Dyke Show. Laura, the young housewife played by Mary Tyler Moore, caused a fashion sensation by wearing snug-fitting Capri pants in many episodes. After a drop in popularity during the 1970's through the 1990's, Capri pants again became a dominant trend during the early 21st century.
