Size 4 - Waist = 32.5", Hips = 39.75"
Size 6 - Waist = 33.5", Hips = 40.75"
The pants are also available on Net-A-Porter. Look at the difference in stock photos. The Net-A-Porter pic is much more accurate.
Size 4 - This was definitely the correct size. They would look better with a 2-3 lb weight loss or sleeping with my Prep H & my wrap belt would do the trick. That aside, size 4 -- the smaller of my J Crew pant sizes -- is the right choice. The sequins are dark grey and photograph brighter than they appear in person. I didn't want them to be disco ball shiny, but I was unprepared for how unremarkable they were irl.
I tried the pants w/the keeper chambray shirt ($78, sz 6). Chambray shirts go with just about any and everything. Check the pants out on Bows and Sequins.
View from the side. A little pulling near the pocket, but I think these stretch out a little during the day with wear.
I forgot to take a photo. It would probably be a thumb to the side. I've been thinking about these pants since I received them and I couldn't put my finger on what was wrong. The color is darker, more muddied than I expected. It's really too bad that J Crew has such inaccurate depictions of their merchandise. Stop w/the Photoshop filters! I like that they're wool, that they have pockets & I like the concept overall. I didn't like that the color was darker than expected or that the sequins were more muted than expected. However, I'm thinking the sequins would catch the right light at an evening holiday party.
