These are luxurious and wonderfully made. They feel incredible on, and the eye reads them as a skirt rather than pants. They are high-waisted--more so than I realized, requiring one to wear a more cropped top or to tuck their shirt in. This is not necessarily a critique, but it will make a difference in how I style them. Unfortunately I have not had the chance to really wear them out and about because of the polar vortex that came through and the crazy midwest weather, but I do not regret this purchase at all. I had been eyeing them for months, and I'm glad I made the leap. I know they will get considerable wear. The pockets are deep and functional, somehow the pleats are flattering, and the silky interior make them feel like butter against the skin. I'm a size 16/16w/xl, and the 1 fit me well.
