LLM, what store are the WAFS WU SE from?
Just hunting for it on my newsfeed now. It was a US store. I'll post the exact store as soon as I find it again.
I got my in the mail and I was kind of disappointed. The product pics made the non-wafs parts look white to me, but in reality, they were silver spoon grey. They look kind of dingy or dirty to me, so I'm not sure about them yet. I guess I didn't read the color description well enough, I thought they looked so cute and crisp with white detailing. The pants are kind of all over silver spoon colored, and it's just not as pretty as the grey-white wafs mixes of the past. I hope this makes sense. Bottom line, they weren't as pretty in person as in the photos.
I felt the same way.
I received my SE WUCs too and actually love them! I get the color comment above, but I guess I wasn't expecting them to be white so I'm fine with the color. In fact I would argue not having white makes them more wearable as the season fades into Fall. I think the grey keeps the pants more versatile with dark and light tops looking equally good. I was most concerned with the lighter color not being particularly slimming, but I think they are very flattering on. And for the million dollar question, yes they are totally opaque. I'm 5'6", 127# and I found my typical size 6 to run maybe a tad big, but not big enough to hunt down a 4. They are a touch longer on me than on the model, but I kinda have short legs.
Shoot! I may be needing the Jet Crops in Wee Space too. LL has been destroying my budget this year. I picked up a pair of the Slim jet crops luxtreme in the petal cross court print and they are just like heaven on. I was surprised that a patterned print in bottoms would look good with my bottom so I will have to look at these new ones too. Thanks to Anon@9:30 & 9:32 about the High times SE wafs intel. The non white would be a deal breaker for me as it was the crisp white that was appealing. If I can get them, going to order the pretty plume HT SE next week. Not sure if I can carry the print but like them enough to order and try. Still waiting for the bark brown Studio Pants. (Those will be mine. Live in Studio's)
I agree the silver spoon color makes the wafs wuc look like dirty white. The wafs print is just grey stripes. I like the back leg seaming and hemline detail is nice. They are stretchy and not compressive. Not sure if I'll keep.
Anon @ 3:!7 a.m. Thanks for the detailed info on the WAFS special editions WU's! Hoping they come to my two stores since they sold out online. I , too, preferred the muted contrast rather than having it it in white for the same reason that they can be worn into fall and winter. Also, i think it's a more unique look since lots of other brands have the stark white on the bottom now, which arguably can give a widening effect - not something I'm looking for.
They just uploaded a few new styles of the Jet Crop Slims in the US site!
