Women's Super Skinny Patterned Pants
Strange size variation
I bought the French Walnut Dot pants in this model and they fit perfectly in a size 4 (5'6 ½?, 125 lbs). However, the Dark Sky Floral in the same size were too small. I had to return them. Now about the French Walnut, I love them. Comfortable, nicely stretchy, false front pockets avoid bulk, good length for leggy people, lovely. They are just as nice worn casually or dressed up with a little black cami.

Does not look as pictured
I ordered the celestial dot navy patterned pants because I thought the dark blue with the polka dots would be a great addition to my wardrobe. I just received the pants today, and they are a faded blue with an off white polka dot - these pants look like they have gone through the washer about 50 times. They are not the dark navy that you see pictured at all. I will be returning them as the picture is very misleading and they just look old and worn.

Not What I Expected, But Fine
Okay, so yeah. I read the other review comparing these to jeggings and interpreted that to mean that these would be ... thicker. Like the "J" part of jegging. Because patterned jeans are really in right now, amirite?
Yeah, not so much. These are very thin, which I should probably have expected for a pair of pants meant for summer. Like, thinner than an oxford shirt thin. And the front pockets aren't pockets. Which I didn't expect either somehow. I thought these would be the usual five pocket jeans style. And all pants have front pockets?! But no, these are like proto-pants. I sized up as the other reviews recommended, and they're a bit loose in the butt and waist but really tight in the thighs. They stretch out a bit after wearing, though.
Three stars for the fun pattern, and I'd recommend them as long as you're not expecting a pair of patterned jeans. Not the pants' fault I failed at reading comprehension. But I wouldn't pay full price.

I have a really hard time finding pants that fit me in this brand but I bought these in my usual size anyway since I really liked the print (french walnut dot). When I first pulled them on they were exremely tight and rode up...A LOT! After wearing them for a bit they did stretch out and became comfortable and wearable - similar to the way they look on the model. Like someone else said the pockets in front are 'for show' and the fabric is very thin. I do own jeggings (shh!) and found this material is thinner, but that isn't unforgivable since these pants are meant for warmer months. The first time I wore them out I received many compliments. Expensive at the regular price so if you're unsure wait for a sale and maybe size up.

Love this pant, had to buy two
This pant in my normal LE size was way too tight, had to return for next size up. However, the fabric was so soft and comfortable that they deserved another try. Glad I did because I love them. Bought both the brown dot and dark blue floral. I kept the star at a 4, since I had to exchange.

my new favorite spring pant!
I got these in the blue w/ white polka dot and they are now my favorite new pant for spring!!! Like the previous reviewer said, they are a thin pant with few pockets - but that's what make them flattering! And they're a great weight for spring/summer. If they were to fit more like a jean or a chino then print would add lbs, whereas right now they are super flattering and the print is actually very slimming! I've gotten tons of compliments, need to buy the floral next!

Jeggings are NOT Pants
These "pants" are way more like a jegging than a real skinny pant. The front pockets are fake (just top-stitched to look like a pocket, as you might find in some tween-oriented mall store). The fabric is very, very thin and stretchy. I was expecting a soft twill with stretch that fit close to the body. But again, these were more like leggings in design and construction than they were like true pants.
I'm rating these two stars instead of one because the fabric is very soft and the pattern (polka dot) is cute.
