Rated 4 out of 5┬áby Taba Great fit, fantastic with tights
As someone who really isn't fond of shorts or skirts or exposed legs in general (on herself!) I was shocked when I fell so in love with these shorts. I usually wear them with tights and booties, and layer looser fitting shirts on top for more of a boho look than the online picture, making it feel a little more like a Free People outfit than Anthro.
At 5'10 and 175lbs I generally find shorts too short for my personal taste but these were the perfect length for my long legs. I usually wear a size 32, and probably could've probably sized down to a 31, but I wanted to make sure I had some wiggle room for the winter to wear stockings with them, along with the fact that I mysteriously seem to gain a size when fall hits. After 3 or 4 wears I haven't fount that they've stretched out much more than half a size.
One thing to remember, these are hand wash shorts and the first (and only, so far) time I washed them the color ran like crazy. Make sure to actually use cold water to help with that, and for goodness sake don't wash them with anything else.

Rated 5 out of 5┬áby Jilliebean1018 Great deal!
Saw these online on sale - went to try on in the store. Loved 'em!
5'10", size 6, usually a 28 in shorts. I actually sized up because the 28 was a bit too short/snug in the crotch area. (Tall girl problem.)
"Coating" is pretty light, no sheen on the shorts. Hit me right where they hit the model - long enough to be dressed up with tights.
Never would have gone with them full-priced, but for $37, they're a great "on trend" item to have in your wardrobe.

Rated 4 out of 5┬áby emily123 weird fabric
I saw it in store when it first came out and thought to myself--wow, so unique.
It is unique, with a leather-like look.
However, when I put it on, the fabric feels weird. It is really thin and feels like plastic...
I tried it without tights and it was a pass.
Now that I have read other people's reviews, maybe I should try it on with tights and wear it in the winter.
