J.Crew: Cafe Capri Pants Review

When I was at J.Crew last week trying on clothes, I saw these cute pink pants (item #10492) on sale for $49.99. I found out later that they are J.Crew's Cafe Capri pants (city fit). I am pretty sure I saw one of the sales associates where these once in a super cute outfit, so I wanted to see how they were on me.

These pants fit true to size, but are a slim fit, especially in the hips.

I really love the color of these pants, and also love that they were $49.99 in-store (as opposed to on sale for $69.50 online, or even $79.50 regular price).

So I don't have a backside picture for you because I do not like that shot at all. Makes my rear look all weird. Sorry!

So you might wonder then why I didn't get the pants, since I like the fit, the color, and the price! This is why:

The pants were literally THISMUCH too short! Looking at the pictures, I think they look okay, but IRL, they length was literally half an inch too short. I guess even sadder is that these are supposed to be capri pants. The petite length is 3 inches shorter, but $20 more, so I'm passing for now.

What do you think? Do you like the slim fit capris? Do you like capris in general?

OMG! They're soooo long for "capris." Not sure how tall you are but I'm about 5'4 and i'm sure they'd fit the same on me. Even so with 3 inches up for petites, aren't capri's like supposed to like high calf area? IMO they should be called "cropped pants" not capris.

Well, im glad you saved your money on these! You were better of using this money to buy those super cute shorts in your previous post!
