High waist lavender!

The waist is super long and, the length was not cropped - more like an odd high water. I would take caution before renting for anything more than a regular day. It was just OK. But I did get a lot of compliments on the color and it did give me a snatched shape.

No so flattering

No lining in the pant. Light wool material. Not forgiving. If you have a semblance of a tummy pass on these

Weird fit

The fit on these pants is very strange. They're super high waisted, very flared and a weird length. I guess they're meant for really tall women.

Comfy, soft, yet professional and classy

Loveddd these pants. Great fit. Came closer to my ankle than above ankle. High waist was perfect!

Nice color, super soft! And high-waisted!

In the grand scheme of things I probably should have gotten a size 2. But the 0 worked. I really liked these crop pants and they are unbelievably soft!

Not for me

I was hoping this can be a little twist for the normal work outfits, but it doesn't work for me. The pant was high waist, it was ok when you stand up; but when you sitting down, it just tight up at your stomach. Maybe it would work for someone has a longer torso.

cute but didn't hit the mark

i really loved these pants but unfortunately the crotch was very long and baggy as well as the waist on the size 2 so i sadly had to return without wearing.

Will rent again!

Purple pants seem like a huge statement and dressing challenge, but these are super versatile and a lovely, neutral-ish gray/purple color. The other reviews were correct - the waist is super high, they run slightly large (I may get the 4 next time) and the fabric was a pretty light wool (hello to 3 seasons of wear). I wore them to work with black and white striped top, black blazer and a neck scarf. They did wrinkle after sitting all day, but I will absolutely rent these again.

Not nice at all

It runs small. Very wide leg. Not lined and it is wool. Looks frumpy. Did not wear, because the style was ugly and it was too small. Runs small so size up if you rent. Do not recommend.

Unfortunately I didn't end up wearing these pants. They were great quality fabric but the fit was odd on my body and the waist is a lot higher than pictured.

Beautiful color and material, but just a smidge too small at the waist - no give!

These are great pants and such a lovely color but have no stretch, so while I wouldn't recommend "sizing up" per se, if you're between sizes normally lean towards the upper end!

Great work pants

I'm normally between a 0 and a 2 but these pants sit higher up in the waist so a 0 works great. Great feeling material and a fun fit! I am into the baggier legs look so these pants are perfect. The color is also fabulous! I'd love to own these.

Basic Pants

I took a risk on these pants because I thought they looked cute on the model. They are very high waisted, slightly above my natural waist, but true to size. My biggest complaint is that this pair looks a little worn, like they've been dry cleaned a lot, which I'm sure they have. Otherwise, they were a good work look.

Weird color

The fit on these pants was just okay, a little snug in the thighs. My main quibble was the color which I thought was going to be more purple, but was really a weird mix of purple and gray.

Didn't end up wearing it because it was not summertime appropriate.

Not at all something to wear in the summer. Material is too warm and only good for winter.

Comfortable work pants.

These were much wider than they appear on the model. I would describe them as "wide-leg trousers" while they look pretty straight cut on the model. Also I am 5'4" and these came the my ankle, so they are not cropped as they appear. The fabric is very soft.

Unsure about these.

So these pants... First, the good: great material, high quality, GREAT color, well-made. The bad: the fit was a bit "off." I'm not sure if I should have sized down or what, but the crotch area was a bit baggy/bunchy which caused wrinkling. They ARE high waisted pants, but they are a bit excessively long in the waist/crotch. I didn't really care for that. Also... the length. It was odd. I think this would serve a taller woman best because it just hit me in a weird spot on the leg. I made it work with pumps, but it definitely was odd. I paired the pants with a cape/blazer from my own wardrobe and a white blouse. I got lots of compliments on the look, but I had my cape on most of the day. I would like to say size down, but I don't think you really can based on how the pants fit me in the butt and hips. If you are tall, have a longer torso or are thicker in the bottom, you might be able to make this work. Otherwise, I don't know.

Comically long crotch

These pants looked like 1930's newsboy trousers. They had an extremely tall wait that hilighted my belly pooch and squeezed my waist in too tight. The length was great for the short girls to wear as full length trousers and the fabric was high quality.

Size up!

Great quality fabric. In person, it's a lightweight wool in a beautiful lavender color that is sophisticated and not at all like an Easter egg. I normally can't stand pastels, but this is a grown up shade. I liked the high waist. Unfortunately, these pants run small compared to other size 6 brands, so I was unable to wear these. Also, the crease was nonexistent and the pants arrived wrinkled, so prepare to do some ironing before you wear them.

Didn't wear it

Love the look of the pants, but it is definitely NOT made for women with curves. I couldn't even close them around my hips and waist... going up a size wouldn't have mattered. Definitely, need to be tall and thin to rock these pants.

Well-made work pants!

In Theory I normally wear a 00 but as I loved the look of these pants and they were only offered in 0, I decided to take a chance! They actually fit pretty well; they were just a smidge loose at the waist but they fit in the hip/thigh area so there was no chance of the pants falling down. For some reason, these were very high-waisted on me and came up to almost my bra line. However, this allowed the pant to fit down to my ankles and I didn't have to wear heels. I'm 5'3" so if you are taller, it should fit like it does on the model. The material was light yet warm and they kept me cozy in my freezing office! Overall I liked these pants and would get them again!

True high-waist pants!

I usually have a problem with high-waisted pants not being high enough, but these had the perfect rise for me! They fit great at the waist, but were a little small around the hips, so one of the pockets wouldn't lay flat (I'm curvy). The lavender color was pretty, and I reccomend wearing with a cropped blouse.

Too loose and baggy, size down

The waistline fits well, however, from the hip downwards were very loose and baggy for me. I think it may be better for people who are curvier. The fabric is comfortable and it's a casual work look.

classic

Loved these pants! The high waist and wide leg were classy and the color was unique, but neutral. Could have probably gotten away with a size 4, but kind of liked them a little loose. Had a feminine menswear feel.

great fit and feel!

I have a smaller waist than my hips and these pants fit perfectly! no gapping at the top! loved it! I will say, though that these pants will probably fit really short on anyone thats taller than 5'2. I'm 5'1 (on a good day) and the bottom of pants was only an inch or 2 from hitting the floor. perfect fit for me!
