Great piece and addition to
Great piece and addition to my wardrobe. Sized up from a usual M to a L in the silk.
Comfortable, versatile, well-made
I actually don't mind the sweltering summer heat as much, now that I have these to wear. Great fit, fabric feels great, can be dressed up or down. Machine washable, hallelujah! Bought a pair for my sister and she loves hers too
Even though I ordered another pair of pants in the M size as well, I found these not fitting as well. The waistband is tighter on these and I had to keep pulling down the fabric, maybe they could be a tad longer so it wouldn’t run up? But after wearing them for a while I did really love this piece as well, just so elegant and effortless, but I would probably size up to a L next time.
These made me a shorts convert!
After years of not wearing shorts (despite living in a muggy climate that begs for shorts) I have found the perfect pair in these flowy silk beauties. They are what your closet is missing! I sized up since I have found that to be helpful with silk and with the elastic waistband the proportions still work.
Great cut and flattering fit, but waistband elastic is too rigid
I love these shorts - the silk is durable yet lightweight and comfortable, the cut is supremely flattering, and they are so easy to dress up or down! My only complaint is that the waistband elastic doesn't have a ton of give to it, making it a little bit uncomfortable over long periods. I ordered the correct size according to the size chart, and maybe they will break in once I wear them a ton, but so far the elastic is still a bit uncomfortable. I wouldn't want to order the next size up, though, because they fit perfectly otherwise. Worth noting!
These are very cute and
These are very cute and versatile. Worth having despite one thing: I do have to make sure I'm wearing the right underwear with these shorts to help me avoid a wedgie. The silk really hugs my rear, and the back rise isn't any longer if I go up a size.
Exactly what I wanted!
Honestly I bought these (along with the Ella tank) to wear as pajamas. They are perfect and I'm very happy! And I will find an occasion to wear them out in public!
Silk Crepe Wins Again
Silk crepe is my absolute favorite fabric - the luxurious flow, the semi-matte sheen, the comfortable breathability, the versatile styling, and the heavenly texture are just a few reasons I love this fabric. I have silk Florence shorts in both black and moss, and I'm saving for a pair of Florence pants of the same colors. The waist is high, and the leg is relaxed. In my mind, this makes the Florence short THE short.
Beware if you usually buy tall!
I wanted to love these shorts, but they fell short (literally). I am not in the tall length range, however I often order tall as I have a longer rise. I ordered a M, my usual bottoms size, and the shorts were a good 2 inches below the smallest point of my waist, leading to an uncomfortable fit (in other words, perpetual wedgie).
I returned the M and do plan on sizing up to get a longer rise- when measurements are posted so I can confirm the larger size won't fall short either!
