Linen

It somehow feels wrong to be wearing these linen trousers when just a few days ago I saw snow and hail falling from the sky. That’s right, I said SNOW. You can probably guess how I feel about that. But on to a little review of these J.Crew full-length linen pants that I have fallen in love with.

I’m usually the first to shun high-waisted pants because of my short torso, but these hit me and just the right place on my waist to give that leg-lengthening look I only see in catalogs. It is probably due to the fact that these are petite-sized and therefore perfectly proportioned so that there is some sort of separation between my underarms and my legs. Thankfully these pants come in a 32″ inseam, which is a quite a bit longer than most standard petite sizing and allows me to wear heels. Whether this is due to the fact that these are expected to shrink–since it is linen after all, I have yet to find out. I do wish these had side pockets, but I suppose it’s a fair trade off for such a great fit. Are you wondering about wrinkling? Yes, definitely, no doubt about it. You can see it pretty clearly in these photos but it really doesn’t bother me much.

    Is it in black or blue that you’re wearing? I can’t tell. It looks fantastic on you. You’ve convinced me to try so many J.Crew pieces that I otherwise found mehhh on their website. Thank you!

      They’re black! But even IRL, they look almost blue. The first time I saw them I had to do a double-take, but I checked the website and it says black.
