Rated 5 out of 5 by margie versatile transition shorts
These are the perfect transitional shorts from spring to summer; they can be paired with a linen blazer and heels for a dressy look, yet they look chic dressed down with sneakers and a t-shirt. However, I was disappointed in the sizing. I ordered my usual size 2 and they hung on me. Re-ordered a size 0 and they fit perfectly. I would suggest that JCrew make a note of items that run large or small to avoid this problem. I am petite, so the length is still appropriate for casual work days (several inches past fingertips). Material doesn't wrinkle much and they look as good at the end of the day as the beginning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by WED619 Lovely shorts!
I have the absolute HARDEST time with shorts, and was SO pleasantly surprised when putting these on - they actually looked good! The material is super light and comfortable, can be dressed up or worn casually, and the pleating in the front is extremely flattering without adding extra bulk. They are the perfect length w/ the 5" inseam, and have a higher rise, too, which I LOVE (am a new mom - higher rises are my friend). I usually wear a size 8 or 10 in JCrew, and the 8 fit beautifully.....it was actually a little loose and I probably could have gotten away with the 6 to be honest (talk about a feel good moment - ha!). Y'all need to add these to your wardrobe!

Perfect length, color & fit. For once I love the pleating too. Size down, they do run large. These will be on repeat all summer long.

I was having a bit of a love affair with these shorts after receiving them last night--trying them on with everything I can think of and already wondering what other color to order next. I ordered them in a larger size--for a more flattering fit--and love how they sit perfectly on my hips (I was worried a smaller size wouldn't have offered that fit) and are super-flattering as crepe typically is (was also worried about the pleats, but they really just serve to dress the shorts up). They look amazing with nude heels (so the shorts can be the star), a fitted top, and a cute belt--they are already a new favorite of mine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by MissMEW Love these shorts!
Perfect fit. Perfect for day or evening. These shorts are a wardrobe staple and a must-have. I like that they're not too short (I'm 40-ish and on the short side, so a little self-conscious of my legs) and that I can wear them to work with or without a stocking. Honestly, I say buy these in every color (especially black) and rejoice in a stylish short that can be urban or not, depending on the look and location you find yourself in. At his price -- buy 'em up, ladies (and gents)!
