Minnie Pants: J. Crew

If you buy one pant this season, make it Minnie. She's chic and slim-fitting (thanks to a flattering two-way stretch fabric) with a vintage-inspired cropped leg that we love. Cotton/elasthane. Side zip. Back welt pockets. Import. Dry clean. $79.50 item 18850

One more of the "must have" items for fall, for me anyway, was the stretch twill Minnie Pant. I couldn't decide which color to get from the three standard colors offered (black, charcoal, khaki) so I went with the charcoal. I think I will be buying these in the khaki color as well - once they go on sale or promotional price, that is! No more full price stuff for me for a while!!

I had an instant love affair with these pants as soon as I saw and felt the rich, thick fabric. My love for these suckers only grew deeper once I put them on! In fact, I wore them around the house for the rest of the night after trying them on! LOVE LOVE LOVE these!

I've already worn them out a couple times (we've had a little cold snap recently) with strappy sandals and flats and they held up to my high expectations! I seriously cannot wait to wear these tucked into boots this fall and winter! So cute (and comfy!!) The only downside I can find is that they are dry clean only. With the darker color, I'm hoping to get away with at least 2 or 3 wears between dry cleaning services!

In contrast with the Pixie pant in the previous roll out, these pants are right on the money. The Pixie pant ran very snug (in my opinion) and the fabric was not nearly as nice. The Minnie doesn't have the exposed zipper (which I'm loving right now) but they fit like a glove.

Bottom Line: I am SO glad I purchased these, even at full price. I will be buying them in at least one additional color. Runs TTS (possibly a tiny bit on the roomier side) for J.Crew - I got my normal size 2 and they fit perfect, certainly not snug at all.


  1. love love love the minnies! I got the coal as well, and am just waiting for a promo or % off to add other colors. Can't decide between the black and khaki....maybe I need both.

  2. I know!! Sounds like you are as bad as me!!
