SmAcKdOwN: photofloral pants
J Crew's collection café capri in photofloral vs Forever 21's floral print ankle pants
I like the photofloral print, but not convinced the pants would look good on me. Prints are tricky because you never know what part of the print will highlight what part of your body. Flashback: Lady parts skirt. The print on F21's pants go over the pants, but when I saw them I immediately thought of J Crew's. The photoflorals are a silk/wool blend. F21's pants are cotton/spandex. The measurements are interesting. F21 is definitely a junior fit compared to J Crew.
J Crew's size 4 - waist = 33 1/4", low hip = 40.5", thigh = 24 1/4", inseam = 28"
F21's size S - waist = 29, thigh = 18", rise = 9", inseam = 28.5"
I would love to try the F21 pants, though I think the would be too tight on me. My Jr's body was left behind in the early 2000s. The J Crew pants seem impractical for me, so I've just been admiring them online. I like the black/white floral vs multicolor. It's a nice change.
Thanks for stopping by...
