These pants are so trendy and look great for work or going out. They have a ton of stretch. Thankful for the belt loops (no zipper/fly) so a belt can be used to keep pants from moving down from the tummy. Love all the patterns and fabric. I would recommend hang to dry for longevity. Can wear them with shoes, boots, booties, etc...they are not too flared where they would stick out of boot. Straight leg fit. Would not buy a size up even with stretch. Buy your regular size.
