So, you may remember that I already tried on these pants before. Well, I just can't get away from these pants. Just to recap, these are item #10492, and J.Crew describes the Cafe Capri as such:
Our favorite Cafe Capri is back—updated with new waistband details. We love this pant—it's practical and effortlessly chic. Cotton with a hint of stretch. Zip fly with hook-and-bar closure. Back welt pockets. Import. Machine wash. Catalog/jcrew.com only.
- City fit—our lowest rise.
- Sits just above hip.
- Fitted through hip, with a slim, straight leg.
- 23" inseam.
My PS brought me these pants to try in this pinky-orange color (I think they are sweet papaya). I didn't like the color much, but I decided to give the pants another try in black, as I have been looking for a nice, lightweight black pant for the summer. These are a size 6 (as were the pink ones I tried on previously).
I think these pants fit true-to-size, but again, are a little on the slimmer size. So if you have hips (like me), then I would recommend trying them on to see which size you like best.
I have to say, these pants are so much more flattering from the side, at least for me. I could never wear these color pants either. I'm sure they look great on many of you ladies, but they are just not me at all.
I did end up taking home a pair of the black capris, and I also picked up the pink ones that I reviewed before, as they were now marked down to $19.99! I am also in love with the navy ones, and may cave and pick up a pair of those, too, but I'm debating ordering them in petite so I can enjoy some actual capris.
What do you think? Do you like these cafe capris? Do you like the sweet papaya color? And just out of curiosity, are there any other shorties out there who buy capri pants to avoid buying regular pants and having them hemmed?
