As some of you know I've already reviewed Everlane's Stretch Ponte Pants so I wasn't really expecting these stretch ponte crop pants to be all that different, just shorter. But actually the cropped version of these pants fit quite differently than the regular ones and I think that's mostly due to the change in their sizing (they went from a S,M,L system to numerical sizes). I'm usually between a 4 and a 6 and I got a M in the regular stretch ponte pants but they were a tad big. So I went with the 4 here and probably should have gone with the 6.
And due to the fit these weren't the most flattering pants. But like I said with the regular ponte pants, these are probably best layered with a long tunic or sweater since it's very unforgiving to bumps and panty lines. But I did like the length of the cropped pants and the way they taper at the ends.
But in the end I decided to return it since I'm so over tight/fitted pants. I've been living in my straight-leg jeans from Frame as well as all my Grana silk pants, and I've been relishing the loose flowing feeling from the culottes and the general un-sausage like feeling of my legs. So actually when I tried these on I felt so constricted. But if you're looking for a good alternative to leggings, this would be the perfect winter time substitute (since they're much warmer than regular leggings and more structured too).
