Capri pants are back. And that's bad news. The fashion item suburbanites used to call pedal-pushers is everywhere this season, on every rack in every women's department in every clothing store. They are the no-choice choice this summer. Let me be frank. Capri pants were a bad idea when my mother, with her test-tube figure, wore them in the 1950s and they are a bad idea now. They were a bad idea for every woman except Audrey Hepburn and Sandra Dee 50 years ago, and they are a bad idea for every woman except teen models now. To wear them, you must have a perfect rear end, perfect calves, perfect ankles and perfectly manicured toes, and if you look that good you should be wearing short shorts, not something it looks like you outgrew.

CBS will no longer air three Miller beer commercials and NBC decided to drop five, all on grounds they were unfair to rival Anheuser-Busch. One of the ads showed a Budweiser deliveryman wearing Capri pants. In a letter to Miller Brewing Co. of Milwaukee, CBS said the three commercials were "unduly disparaging" and would be dropped Dec. 30. NBC is dropping five Miller ads, NBC spokeswoman Shannon Jacobs said. Miller has targeted Anheuser-Busch Cos. Inc.'s 50 percent market share in the United States with a series of ads promoting Miller Lite as having lower carbohydrates and being preferred by drinkers over Bud Light, the best-selling U.S. beer.

The Capri pants were kicky, kiwi and scattered with bright pink Gerbera daisies. They flared ever so slightly at the hem, rode low on the waist and screamed fun and summer. Best of all they were just her size: 9 months. No that's not a typo. They now make Capri pants for infants. Baby clothes have grown up and gotten fashionable. In addition to pastel pinks, blues and yellows, infants and toddlers now can sport such strong colors as bright green and orange. They can wear fabrics like linen and suede.

FEEL A LITTLE like Rip Van Winkle -- waking from a Jones New York reverie to find myself in an elastic waistband world. The last thing I remember is the Lands End "First Person" catalog, with slim, A-line skirts, suit jackets and fitted blouses. Am I dreaming? Or does everything come with "a carefully covered elastic waist?" Or an "easy fitting drawstring style?" What happened to front pleats? What did I miss? I thought "relaxed fit" jeans were the only concession I would have to make to middle age. That, and "loose."

Two years ago, we had shorts and we had pants. Shorts were short. Pants were long. No confusion. This summer we have pedal pushers and clamdiggers, cropped pants and capris. They range in length from just below the knee to just above the ankle, and in width from skinny to elephantine. Some are finished with a cuff, others with a slit. With so many variations, there's bound to be some confusion. What length and width is most flattering? What shoes and tops look best? "There are cropped pants that are good for all sizes.

This is the season for flirty dresses, cutesy Capri pants and strappy sandals. Which is all the more reason why Naomi Miller's kicky, red, patent-leather boots make such a bold statement. Just by pulling them on, Miller told the world so many things about herself: She is a woman who knows what she likes. She is a woman who bucks trends. She is a woman who isn't afraid to do what she darn well pleases -- no matter what fashion forecasters say. WONDERING IF YOU WERE GLIMPSED? Check out baltimoresun.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- At the end of each day, employees at Gladstone Bowl re-shelve the bowling shoes that patrons have heaped on the front counter. Lately, it has taken them less time to finish the chore. The reason: There are fewer shoes to shelve. People have been stealing them from the alley at an alarming rate, manager Vicki Davis said. "It seems like every week we lose at least a dozen pairs of shoes," Davis said. "I think people are wearing them outdoors to make a fashion statement."
