Capris, clam diggers and pedal pushers are basically all the same type of pant.
They are the perfect thing to wear when you don't want the informality and skin revealing nature of shorts or the constriction of long pants.
Since you don't need to roll up the pant leg, they are great to wear when strolling along the shore or when riding a bicycle.
The attractive harlequin print 1950's capris posted above can be found over at Ballyhoo Vintage Clothing.
