So comfortable and fit is perfect

I didn't think I was going to like these as much as I do, incredibly comfortable and stylish in a casual way. Wore with black strappy sandal wedge heels and black tank to work- want to keep them! Fit is true to size, semi high-waisted but not crazy high, highly recommend!

The search is over: Meet the perfect white jeans!

The search is over: Meet the perfect white jeans! Cut with a higher waist and tailored wide-leg, they are made for an hourglass or pear silhouette, accentuating the waistline while skimming over the legline. Goodbye, skinny jeans (Who even liked them anyway?). I've worn these everywhere, from a weekend trip to the zoo to a Casual Friday at work. The tailored silhouette (unlike skinnies) is structured with a little room, so it can easily be dressed up for more professional occasions. I'm even wearing them as a write this review -- off to a beach trip for the weekend. They're true style chameleons. One call out, however, is the length. I'm 5'5" with shorter legs (tend to buy petite denim) and these were almost too long. I would suggest women under 5'3" to read the reviews carefully, but that doesn't mean you shouldn't try them. You do you :)

SO CHIC. Awesome pant for all seasons.

These cropped pants looked awesome on. The wide leg was very flattering. There was a little "gapping" in the back but overall with a shirt tucked in they looked great. The cropped length hit me right above the ankle. I worn these with hysteria socks hanging out of booties, turtle neck and long trench. Looks professional for work!

Loved them but SNUG

Im 5'5' and 140lbs, hourglass. These were definitely snug. Might have tried a size larger (10) but the snug fit was cery flattering if not a bit tight since they are not stretch material. Really had fun with these. They are great with a tee tucked in or a cropped sweater. Loved doing white on white or just white and back with gold jewelry. Loved the frayed crop. Would like to rent again in the spring or summer

Cute but definitely CARPENTER style

Cute, fit pretty snug around waist and loved the wide leg crop. I just didn't realize these were carpenter style which is my fault but carpenter jeans aren't really my thing so I didn't wear them.

Too small

I got these pants hoping they would work for an out of town conference. I ordered a size 12. I am typically a 12/14 depending on the cut. I was unable to get them zipped! I think I would have had to go up two sizes to get a nice fit.

Easy and Comfortable!

Pros - cute fit through the thigh, the frayed edge was a nice touch. Cons - the high wast makes these a bit tight in the crotch area. Overall I really liked these pants! They can be dressed up with heels or down with sneakers! Very versatile!

Didn't fit

Unfortunately I felt these also ran very small as 6s almost always fit me and these were very very tight. Liked the color and cut though.

I looked like an actual carpenter

Maybe it's because I'm short, but these pants were horribly unflattering. They were also huge on me. They looked nothing like the photo.

they are very thick material, which is too hot for the current summer weather.

This was a RTR a miss. I didn't realize they were Carpenter style which isn't my style. Plus they run huge! Probably could have gone two sizes down.

got them for everyday

Exactly as expected - typical carpenter pants. Unfortunately, they do run quite big - and were not very flattering. I rented a size 2 and could have tried a size 0 but decided I did not like they enough. Definitely recommend sizing down.

Must love high waisted...

...And I didn't. The cargo pant also ran a tad small and accentuates any "belly" you may have. I returned it right away.

Stylist Review

I loved these pants. However they run very small. I would consider sizing up, they are very fitted in the hip section and flare out a tad in the thigh area. The fabric doesn't have any stretch at all. I would wear these pants to a brunch.

I did not wear these pants.

I sized up because of the reviews and because I like to wear my pants a little loose. These were too big and were not Capri on me. I just did not like them.

Who's body is shaped like this?

Super tight in the thigh, and 4 inches of extra space in the waist. The material is canvas-y too, so there is no stretch. I can't even recommend renting a size up because it still wont fit right.

Runs small

Love the style, but these run pretty small, so I'd suggest sizing up one size. I'm usually 2, especially in high-waist pants, but I could not get these buttoned. I did not have a 4 delivered, but I imagine it would have fit well.

Could have gone a size up.

This didn't fit great. I could have gone up a size. I'm normally a 27/28 so I would have ordered a 8. Didn't end up keeping these.

Runs very small

The size 12 is more like a size 8 I would have to say. I am normally a size 10 -- maybe a size 12. I got the 12 because I wanted the fit to be roomier and even these were far too small I could not button them. Free People usually runs very small. Recommend sizing up!! These jeans have very cute detailing on the size of the leg!

Not my favorite fit

The pants are a bit long for cropped pants (I'm 5'3, so that isn't a surprise) but I did a half-roll so that the frayed cuff still showed and that worked. The pants are high-waisted though and the waist felt like it ran small (although the hips and legs were not at all).

Throw backs but in white!

I loved my blue carpenter jeans in the 70's! I wore them loose . I will order again in size 8. The 6 pulled at the pockets.

Not a good fit

I really wanted to love these pants, but the fit didn't work well for me. I have curvier hips and a booty with a small waist, and the pants ran tight through the hips with a big gap at the waist. Otherwise they were good quality and a nice length on me, even though I'm 5'3''. Would probably work well on someone slimmer than me.

Just Okay

I didn't realize these were denim and more of a cargo pants style. They were high-waisted which I liked but they had excess front material in the front I didn't care for the look of.

RTR Team Review

The perfect pair of white cropped pants. These run true to size with fit in the waist and hips and little to no stretch to the denim fabric. The high waisted silhouette allows for extra comfort. I'm typically a size 2 or 26 in pants and the size 2 in these fit perfectly. At 5'7" the length hit between my knee and ankle. Pairs perfectly with a tucked in shirt and cool belt.

cute.

nice pants for everyday errands and things. Fabric is thick so not all that great for super hot weather. Spring or mild summer evenings and you'd be fine.

STYLIST REVIEW

I've been looking for a comfy white pair of jeans for the summer and these are it! I found that for the most part, the pants run true to size however just a tad too loose around my hip and bum. I'm petite with little curves so that might have contributed to the fit. At 5'2", it hit a few inches above my ankle - love when I can wear cropped styles as actually cropped. Wore this with a white tee (all white!) and a pair of platform wooden sandals.

just went to work and around in these. got many complements

These were very cute casual denim culottes, and very comfortable. I enjoyed wearing them but the fabric was very "sturdy" so I would not say they were good for very hot weather.

A great entry place into the world of cropped wide-leg pants

I loved the look of these white denim painter's jeans online. In person, the painter's loop is longer than it looks in the RTR image. That didn't bother me, though. I knew that Free People denim ran a bit small for my taste and I don't like to wear super-fitted jeans, so I took a 12 (though I usually wear a 10). That size was perfect and looked even more flattering than I was expecting.

Strange fit...

I felt like these pants made me look "boxy". Tighter in the hips and loose in the waist and a strange rise, not really high-rise but a little more than mid-rise which just looked odd on me. Probably looks better on those with an overall thinner body type, hugged my curves in a weird and unflattering way. Also very stiff and not at all comfortable, I was expecting them to be softer and more "flowy". Not for me.
