There's no dress code at Shopbop, but I try to hold myself to some level of put-togther-ness when dressing for work. These pants, which are essentially leggings, mask that fact by being made of a mid-weight stretch houndstooth, with a wooly handfeel. They are cut straight at the ankle and don't cling, increasing their pant-like appearance. I am 43, 5'3", 155-165lbs and usually wear a sz. 10 or Large. I ordered these in a large, they fit well. Because I'm on the shorter side, I fold them under a couple inches so they hit just above the ankle. I was going to hem them, but folding works, so I haven't bothered.
