Still catching up on all my Grana reviews here so bear with me as I post several Grana reviews in a row. These silk ankle pants have been making their rounds around the blogosphere with mostly favorable reviews so I thought I might as well try them out as well. These ankle pants are made of Grana's 16mm crepe de chine, which I'm not really a huge fan of (I much prefer their 22mm georgette satin which is what their v-neck tank and slip dresses are made of). But at the very least, these are made with 2 layers of silk which makes the pants feel much more substantial. Also because of the double layer of silk, there's no VPL which is also a win in my book.
First a note on sizing, I ordered the pants in medium short because although I'm 5'4" I have the legs of a short person. I love that Grana sizing comes in short, regular or long so you can really find the fit that works best for you.
Anyways I love love love these pants. They're super comfortable and they feel like PJs really. I wore them for the 20+ hours plane rides and layovers that it took to get to Thailand and they were perfect (very little to no wrinkling!!). Felt like PJ's but didn't look as shabby. These are now my go-to airplane pants.
The only annoying thing about these pants is that with prolonged wear, the elastic band sometimes twists. So every now and then you have to straighten the elastic out. But other than that a pair of quality silk pants for $69 is totally worth it. If you're interested in getting your own pair, this referral link will get you 10% off for first time customers.
