Hmmmm.
These leggings appear to be a warmer tone online, so when they arrived, I was a bit disappointed that they didn't appear nearly as nice as the picture. However, the color still had potential to be really versatile... just a little less fun. They have excellent stretch and were fairly comfortable, but my normal 26 was not a good match... I'm really unsure that going up a size would have made a difference to me. They seemed to give an awkward wrinkle of fabric high on your thigh in the back while squeezing your backside in an unflattering way. I'm a runner and a bit twiggy and it seemed to create problem looking areas where I wouldn't normally complain.

Short but fun
I have to admit when I first tried this on, I thought I might immediately return it. It is definitely a cropped shirt. I ordered a small which is my normal size, but at 5'9" unless I am really mindful of how it hangs, my belly button shows. That being said, it is a pretty boxy, loose cut so careful with sizing up too much. Great piece for layering or adding some fun to fairly causal weekend attire or effortless quick piece for running out to a chill dinner.

Great everyday piece
They are definitely off-white, which works well for not just seasonal wear. The detailing is fabulous and the seaming with flap pockets do wonders for how you look leaving. J Brand delivers with a number you could wear everyday. I do feel they are a bit casual for dressing up too much with all the distressing, but I don't think a day has went by that I wore them without a compliment.
Sizing: True to Size / As Expected

In LOVE!
I adore jumpsuits, but this one exceeded my expectations. It appeared to be a piece you could play up or down depending on your mood & occasion. It definitely delivers on that! The material is absolutely crush-inducing, causal & unbelievably comfortable while still maintaining a gorgeous finish. When I first tried it on, I was a bit nonplussed about about the pockets adding volume to the hips. However, a little adjusting of the cinch waist & everything seemed to balance out. It is a truly all season jumpsuit by simply adding a another layer or blazer in cooler months or rocking sandals & a bangle in the summer. I did order a size up (2), as I usually run a 2-4US but wanted a less form-hugging fit that depicted. So pleased I did as it fits perfectly. At 5'9" the length is pretty comparably to how it fits the model.

Just OK
I had fairly high hopes that this little number could be my next casual weekend go-to jacket. Unfortunately, it just wasn't very appealing on. With fair to medium tone complexion the fleece collar didn't not pop as a fun detail, but instead looked fairly dingy. In truth, it does actually look exactly as pictured, but the model wears it much better than I. I think it would have been improved with a more figure flattering tailor, but the boxy cut I was completely lost in like I was borrowing a man's coat. The material are high quality and it had a heavy, earthy feel.
Sizing: Larger than Expected
