Highsmith Trousers

Highsmith Trousers is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from My New Favorite Pants! I have been looking for a pair of navy high-waisted pants. I tried several brands, several of which were much more than I paid for the highsmiths (I purchased on sale). These pants were simply above and beyond the others I tried. The material is substantial, and so they drape really well. The cut is also very flattering--helps give me a waist, when I had a fairly straight up-and-down figure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection Flattering comfortable, polished. They run true to size, maybe a bit big, but that works with this loose style -- I'm normally a 2 and both the 0 and 2 fit, but ultimately I chose the 2.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from high waist These pants are great if you like a high waist. Unfortunately I find pants with a high waist to be very uncomfortable. The waist on these is pretty tight and the legs are very wide. They didn't work for me. The fabric is super nice and drapes well. I would love a pair of lined trousers in this fabric.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty cute and comfy If you're into this look, these pants definitely fit the bill. They're flattering-very relaxed, but they drape in just the right way. I think they fit pretty true to size. I tried on both the 6 and 8 (i'm 5'7" and 140 with a long torso) and I felt that the 6 was so close to fitting except that the seam of the waistband was cutting right into my little mama roll so I went with the 8. The dark color surprised me a bit- a lot more blue than I thought. I get the cute naming of colors, but with the name night vision, I didn' realize that these were navy- really very blue- not black. They seem like good quality and they're fully lined, but still a bit pricey.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from These pants are gorgeous! These pants are gorgeous! The perfect go to pants for Spring/Summer. They are the perfect color of white for this style (not too bright). You can work countless outfits around these pants. The only problem is that they run small...I mean really small. I would recommend ordering a size up. I am typically a size 6 and I could not get them on. I waited 3 weeks to get these backordered pants and was so sad when I had to return them because of the fit. I hope Madewell decides to restock. They haven't even hit the stores yet! Please, please get some more!!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from lovely...but I'm 5'1", 100 lbs. I normally wear xs or xxs (depending on the brand and style). This trouser is super cute, but is huge. The fabric is soft and it's well constructed. I'm debating whether to return it or get it hemmed.
