I think the Weekend pant is the ultimate one for Spring/Summer. Everything from the ultra-lightweight fabrication, easy fit and soft color palette comes together in a perfect combination of comfort, effortless chic and versatility that is so perfect for fun in the sun. Although I like all of the color-ways in this mini collection the Blueberry, with its preppy stripe, is my absolute favorite. It is just so cute! And thanks to the minimal contrast between the background and the pattern itself you can treat this print as a neutral when creating outfits. You can easily pair it with different colors and textures and even experiment with a variety of other prints.
The Weekend pant is a 5-pocket Easy Slim jean. This silhouette features a medium rise with the waistband sitting lower on the hip and a fairly slim leg with a bit of extra room throughout for a slightly slouchier fit. As you can see it is far from being baggy and is definitely much skinnier than the ever-so-popular boyfriend jean. I really like that even though this pant fits a bit loose it still shows off the shape of your body very well. The 28” inseam (rolled) suits the hip style of the Weekend Collection perfectly and gives you a lot of freedom with your footwear choices which can range from classic oxfords for the daytime to sleek pumps for a night out.
The fabric of this pant is awesome! It is VERY light-weight (6 oz.) and breathable which is great for the summer season – you won’t have to sweat bullets even on a hot day. I also love that it is quite compact and despite being relatively thin doesn’t show off every flaw. In addition this 97% cotton/3% elastane blend is wrinkle-resistant! How cool is it that you don’t have to worry about your clothes being all creased during a car ride or a wrinkled mess after being packed up in a suitcase for hours when travelling?! I am definitely taking these on my trip to Paris in May!
The Weekend jean I first received was a 24 (my usual size) and didn’t exactly work out for me. It wasn’t necessarily too small but more like a skinny instead of a slouchy pant so I decided to size up to a 25 and the second pair fit perfectly – slightly roomy but not too big. Therefore, based on my personal experience, I would recommend sizing up in the Weekend pant. If you don’t have the chance to try it on in the store then take advantage of “Free Shipping.
