I completely agree with the no shorts in the dining rooms, but this is my first cruise and I have purchased 3 pair of dressy capris. 2 are satin and one has gold flicks in them. Will they be acceptable. I was really hoping to wear the satin ones for formal night with a sequein top.
Pam, you bring up a really great question. Honestly, i don't think you will see many ladies wearing capris ( dressy or not) on formal night. You will see long evening dresses, cocktail dresses, dress suits and platazzo pantsuits. You will see plenty of capris on casual night, i just don't know about formal night. Perhaps you can call your TA or the cruiseline to find out.
I thought since they were satin and a fancy top would be okay. But I definately don't want to stick out. I thought with heels that would be dressy. I don't have much invested in them, one of those after the season clearance things. I started shoping the the cruise last Christmas. I call that excited.
Pam, here is what i would do. Bring one pair of your dressy capris,with a top to match. Also pack the sequin top but pair it with a long skirt or dressy trousers. Wear the long skirt w/sequin top on the first formal night, check out what the others are wearing and if you feel that the dressy capri outfit would suit your needs, wear it on the second night. If not then take the top from the capri outfit and pair it with the long skirt or dressy trousers you wore on the first formal night.
I usually wear a dress capri for a formal night (do tend to dress to the hilt the other noght). I have several of them that are satin with beads or sequins. Definitely do it with a formal top and with dress shoes. But as the last poster noted, they need to be a little above the ankle ones, not the under the knee ones.
As long as you are comfortable and work it with confidence, you will be fine.
Thank you all, I guess I'll take them just in case and on the first formal night I'll dress up and see if they are okay. I've read on alot of the postings that people don't want to dress up, but this trip is a big deal for us and I want to make it special.
I am a lover of capris and own over 25 pairs all different styles, some are peddle pushers which come down to just above the ankle (never wear any just below the knee always make sure they hit the shin or ankle are). I would suggest to you that if you feel good in what you are wearing then that's the most important thing. You know what I mean ladies, if you put an outfit on and it feels good to you, it lays against your skin just perfectly then I say go for it because when you have that type of conficence you will make the room sparkle when you enter and everyone will be looking at you and wondering wow who is that woman who just walked in?
I have a Capri question ? Does anyone no where my wife can get Capri that will fit her 4'11' size 10. We went to dozens of stores and even checked out the petite sections and all the capris look like long pants on her. Eric
I have huge problems with capris fitting the way I think they should.
Here's the funny part of it all:
I'm 5'8"...so you think I'd be tall enough; but.....
MY INSEAM IS ONLY 24" !!!! (All my height is in my torso!)
AND....I'm a size 18/20 to boot.
so basically, I'm an overgrown Oompa-Loompa (if any of you remember "Willy Wonka")
So, capris either look like regular pants that shrunk (think floods) or long bermuda shorts!!!!
If I wan't capris, I find a cheap pair of lightweight pants and have them cut off and hemmed to the proper length for me. Your wife might want to consider the same thing
