Loving the paper bag look but that will be out in 1-2 years. Really liked the high waisted look of these but they looked matronly on the model so I was concerned. Much better in person! Hopefully even better once the pleading fades with wear. Even though they are tall length they just touch my ankle at 5'8 but that's the look I suppose. Looks great with very fitted blouses to balance the high waist kind of wide hip look (and I am not hippy by any means) and since you can hide any tummy flaw in them the tighter the shirt the better! Order your regular size. The colour and fabric weight work year round. Wish they came in black too!!!
