What sort of pants are these and where can I find more?

I got this pair of pants at H&M because they matched the woman's suit jacket I was buying. I originally scoffed at the length but I have now fallen in love with them. I am especially looking for pants this length/cut in other formal fabrics (the pair pictured are glen plaid).

I believe that style is called a capri pant. A search should provide copious results.

Best answer: Those are cropped cigarette legged pants. Many, many examples with links to buy here.

These are a pretty clear example. They're similar to the ones in your picture, on sale, and adorable. Check Banana Republic, Ann Taylor, Kohl's, J. Crew.

Best answer: Buy any straight-leg or skinny pants that fit (H&M and others will have inexpensive skinny jeans). Put them on, pin them where you want them to end, and get them hemmed at a tailor's or drycleaners. You can also have a 4" wide cuff added right around the calf. I think this style looks especially cute (excuse the dumb image, but you get the idea) and is very flattering on the legs as it makes the calves look shapely.

Response by poster: Excellent suggestions so far, this is exactly what I was looking for but alas, 'tis out of stock.

Esprit's outlets had similar styles.

I'd wear them with high heels and a dressy top, no argyle socks. Need to show skin, not sock or nylon with those...
