I don't usually go for trendy type pieces, usually more modest and classic styles, but I like a cute twist. These are outside what I usually go for. I'm short, 5' and curvy, and these are not slimming, but they are cute and comfy. The cotton fares well in summer heat. They look great with a variety of tops, but my favourite outfit was an eyelet cami under a green khaki button down shirt worn open, and sandals with a little height, as well as a necklace or earrings to draw the eye up.I bought a petite length, but the super high rise was a little too baggy in the front zipper, so I wear a belt to keep them from looking droopy and saggy in that area.
