Just not me
I wanted these to be a replacement for regular denim shorts, so when they didn't fit the purpose I intended I sent them back. In the end I decided this wash and fabric was too difficult to work into my wardrobe. In my opinion, the thin tencel looks best with loose fitting silky tanks and oversize tees (which I just don't wear). The only thing I could find to go with these was an old Sass and Bide black and white polka dot silk beaded cami, but the tie waist seemed like it would put the beads at risk, so I returned them. The fit is really cute though, and they are amazingly comfortable, so I'm still half tempted to reorder them and get a Joie or Isabel Marant top to match.

Just okay
I personally thought the fabric on these was too thin and cheap feeling, but I've been obsessed with fabric quality since I was about five. I wear a 0-2, 25 in jeans, and these seemed too small in an XS. They were also too tight in the waist, cutting into my hip bones in an uncomfortable way. I think they would be cute with an extra inch added to the rise, or on someone shorter (I'm 5'8) or straighter. They did seem really easy to wear, especially with button downs and oxfords in a casual borrowed-from-the boys sort of way.

These are hands down my favorite piece of the season. I love them so much I'm debating getting them in another color as well. They look adorable and are ridiculously easy to wear. So far I've been wearing them with a teal cami bought from Tibi and peep toes for day, booties for concerts, and ankle cuff platforms at night. Usually I stay away from silk shorts because they are often too delicate to be practical, too thin to be flattering or too shiny to be casual, as has been my opinion of the Nanette Lepore silk shorts for example. These, however, are thick, matte, and sturdy enough to wear anywhere or do anything without fear of damaging them. They do run large however, so if you have any sort of waist whatsoever and want them to fit like they do on the model, order a size down. I'm 5'8", 110, got them in a size 0, and I have to belt them to keep them up.
