Rated 4 out of 5 by 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 by Statchie Great shorts, make some noise when you walk
The cut of these shorts is VERY flattering. They aren't too short and look excellent with tights. I was so impressed by the fit that they noise they make didn't bother me all that much.
The only downside is that they make some noise when they rub together. It's a little annoying but not overly loud.

Rated 4 out of 5 by 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.
