Working from home I find I dislike the tighter fit of leggings and jeans — the high rise, the tight crotch, having to wash them all the time. These are my new work from home pants with full range of movement and maximum breathability. I am 5’7 and 110lb and the XXS fits close to the skin, even skin tight through the calf and real madrid ronaldo jersey ankle. I think I prefer the XS which is fitted but not tight throughout. I’m tall and appreciate the full inseam on both, seems like just under 32 inch. The mid rise is comfy for chilling, but if people have to see you, the cut looks better if you flip it over once for a lower rise.
I don’t know how I lived without zip pockets before. I have two of these without the zip pockets and honestly don’t even want to wear them anymore. The ankle zip is also highly convenient because I never have to do the dumb step on your pants to pull them off your feet thing.
If anyone figures out what to wear with these, let me know. I’ve just been stealing my boyfriend’s shirts.
I wanted a looser and lighter color pant to walk/hike in as the days get hotter and my black leggings get too clingy. This is perfect. If I’m too hot I can either just unzip them to flap, or also roll up the pant legs to above my knees. I can feel the interior seams of the diagonal stripes above my knees but I got used to them and it’s not itchy or bothersome. I love the hidden inside drawstring waist. Nice quality zipped pockets. Gray is almost silver so good in the sun. Material is thin enough. Calves are a bit snug on me and pants are just barely long enough. Very comfortable and they sit just about an inch below the belly button, which is a flattering place to be. Very happy with them so far. Nice to be able to unzip the legs to get them on/off easily.
