I love this color, they are pretty out there as far as work pants go, but I don't think they are unprofessional by any means. Just different, in a good way. I think! I almost returned them though but decided to keep them and tore off the tags. I normally like "studio stretch" material in Express pants, but this "double weave" is the only one that had this color. To me it feels a bit more slick and less cottony than studio stretch. The fabric is slightly thinner, which doesn't drape as well as studio stretch. And also it's not as stretchy. I got them in size 0, which is my normal size, but the waistband feels tighter. But they do somehow make your booty look awesome! Lol! Like this model looks booty-licious, and I think these pants make me look like I have a bubble butt too. I like it! I'm sure I won't wear it that often, but I can definitely rock them from time to time.
I also wanted to try out these Studio Stretch Wide Waistband Slim pants, since they sounded interesting. A slim fitting leg sounds like a great idea, and I needed another pair of black pants since the ones I have now are dying a slow death. But this style just doesn't work for me. The hem opening is TOO slim for me, and they don't even really go over my shoes, so I have an awkward crease on top of my shoe, like how men wear suit pants. No likie. Maybe if I were a couple inches taller they'd fit me like the model. But they are not worth the trouble of going to the tailor since I can just buy the regular ones that fit me perfectly length-wise. These are going back.
Oh and I am so sad because I ordered another Studio Stretch Corset Pencil skirt, in black, since I like my tweed one so much. But a couple days after my order was placed, I got an email saying that they no longer had the item! Ahhh!!! They were only $14 too and would've been such a steal! Sad face!!!
Oh well! You win some and you lose some!
