I have some scruples to teach this fashion blog by speaking of a “good old” classic, inspired by fishermen of Capri… You know this little rocky island in the Gulf of Naples and its Blue Cave, famous worldwide! It is a woman, the fashion designer Sonja de Lennart German on vacation near Capri, which launched the pirate pants in the late 40. The idea came to him while watching holding fishermen working the island… at a time when a woman in pants yet passed for a pétroleuse and show where his legs were not common, this revolutionary garment sensation. It will also wait for the years 1953 to 1954 for the privateer become an international star thanks to the film “Roman Holiday” and “Sabrina” (Thanks Audrey Hepburn!). For the story is complete, further underscored Sonja de Lennart created an entire collection “Capri” consisting of trousers but a skirt, a blouse, a belt and a hat. The only model still worn today is the famous pirate-still called Capri pants in some countries.

You just be sure to wear it with a long top that covers the hips. On holidays, add pretty sandals trend and follow our beauty tip: varnish your nails in a similar tone to that of the pants.
