# right-alignment with enumitem

I have the following list with the enumitem package,

\begin{flushright}
\begin{description}[font=\color{black},before=\color{blue},nosep]
\item[Item:] some text some text some text
\item[Another item:] some text
\item[Very long item:] some text some text
\item[Short item:] some text some text some text
\item[Item:] some text some text
\end{description}
\end{flushright}


and everything works perfect, except the flushright environment. I want a description list with right-alignment, I mean all the lines (the label and the body in each item) aligned to the right margin. How can I do it with enumitem package? or do I need another package?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{enumitem,xcolor}
\usepackage{showframe}
\begin{document}
\begin{description}[font=\color{black},before=\color{blue},nosep]
\raggedleft                           %% put this here
\item[Item:] some text some text some text
\item[Another item:] some text
\item[Very long item:] some text some text
\item[Short item:] some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text some text
\item[Item:] some text some text
\end{description}
\end{document}

• Thanks! I had no idea about the command \raggedleft, it works perfect! – Gitano Dec 31 '14 at 3:01
