I posted this on another board, but I figured I'd try it here too. I'm looking for SHORT capris, as in like capris for petite people. I'm 5'2" with MAYBE a 26" or 27" inseam if that. I'm looking for capris with an 18" or shorter inseam, but I'm not having much luck. And if I do find any they're more like "grandma" capris, not anything a 21 year old would wear. I know Old Navy says they have like 3 or 5 different lengths of capris but they really don't, at least not that I've been able to find. They say they have I think 18" capris, but I haven't been able to find them So if anyone has any suggestions of places to look I'd appreciate it. I'm looking for like jean capris or some other cute fabric, maybe a bit "punkish" but certinatly modern. Thanks!

I was just lurking here and happened to come across your post. I'm also very short 5'0 and have a hard time finding capris. I know how you feel as I'm 22. I have found them at Old Navy but they are very hard to come by. You really have to look for the short ones because they are few and far between. When I come across them I usually end up buying a pair. To answer your question though, Old Navy does sell the shorter carpis. Last year I found that aeropostale sold shorter ones also. I haven't looked lately so I'm not sure they're still selling them. Shorter ones are available just hard to find. Kohl's also has them sometimes. It's a pain in the butt to be short sometimes.
