My new work pants... Seriously
These pants are probably the best purchase I've made as far as work clothes go. I originally got black, and they had slit pockets in the back that made them look like suit pants ... I'm 5'2" and they are not cropped on me which is fine. I literally wear them at least 3 out of 5 weekdays to work and get tons of compliments on them. I ordered the black and white burlap too, looks just as dressy. If you're sitting at a desk all day.. Might as well be comfy business casual in Lulu!

nice business casual
I am no longer on a Lulu hiatus because of the Jet Crop in black! I've worn them everywhere since the semi-trouser style and fabric allow them to be dressed up or down. For reference, I'm 5'3 so they fit more like ankle pants on me. I also have narrow hips and muscular calves. Sizing down from my WU sz 4 to a sz 2 gave me a more streamlined look that's not tight at all. One star off because the front gathered and pooched too much. I would have bought multiples if they had a flatter front. Already threw them in the washer several times and they still look new!

Can I wear everyday?!?!?
After eyeing these crops for a while and reading the 4-5 star reviews, I had to check them out. Guess it was meant to be, as I just popped into my local LLL and found a 6 in black...on sale...woohoo!! Tried on and were fantastic! They are perfect for running round, throwing on after the gym and even dressing up for work. Wore to work the next day with booties and tank, then threw back on after yoga with a bra and tank. Comfy = versatile = luv!! I definitely recommend these for anyone who doesn't like wearing dressy clothes, but still wants to look cute while on-the-go. I would wear for a hatha or yin class, but probably not power vinyasa.
I usually wear a size 6 or eight (140lbs, 5"8, athletic build-total surfboard figure) . Stuck with 6...what they had, which fit perfectly. They fit like longer crops a few inches above ankle.
Definitely recommend the Jet Crop!

They're definitely comfy, but too frumpy for my liking. Feels like I'm wearing maternity pants.

lulu never lets me down
I was a bit worried when I pulled these pants out of the bag b/c I've gained some weight and was overly optimistic in ordering the size 10, and at first glance the lightweight silky feel of the material made me think they were going to be tight and icky. Nope! These pants fit perfectly, they don't pull and hug in an unflattering way at my hips and butt. I got the camo print which is really cute and somewhat subtle in that you can wear a bunch of different colors and smaller scale prints with it. I'll probably order a pair with the palm tree print too since it looks like every other color is sold out. Even though they are cropped, I can see myself wearing them all winter and will probably wear them more outside of the gym than at the gym. I agree with the other reviewers, order a size down from your current size. Since I just got them yesterday, I can't comment on how well they'll hold up after repeated washings but I will soon find out because I'm sure I'll wear them all the time.

My favorite everyday pant
I'm seriously thinking about buying another pair of these crops because I will probably end up wearing out my first pair! I probably wear (and wash) these about two-three times per week because I wear them everywhere, including work. I did go two sizes down to a 4 to get a bit of a tighter fit over my behind (as I like my dress pants to fit), but it is still loose and drapey over my hips and through the legs. I did try both the 6 and 8. but they were not as flattering. I also love that the Lulu emblem is tonal (black) so that it's not super obvious that these are yoga-type pants. I've washed them probably about 10 times over the past month and still no signs of wear. Highly recommend!

Perfect, when I went down a size
Just like the trouser pants I bought last year, these seemed to fit better in a size smaller than my tights. I bought a 6, when I'm usually an 8. The 8 was a little too billowy for me, but still cute. I wanted something baggy-but-not and these are perfect! the fabric is amazing (black) and they will be perfect for travel. I'll buy these again and again!

Love these crops!
After much deliberating I finally purchased these crops in black, and I'm so glad I did! They are fantastic! They are perfect for running round, throwing on after the gym and even dressing up for work. They are super comfy and the fabric is extremely soft. I definitely recommend these for anyone who doesn't like wearing dressy clothes, but still wants to look cute while on-the-go.
I usually wear a size 6 (125lbs, 5"2, athletic build) but decided to go down a size to a 4, which fit perfectly. They are a little long on me (I'm used to that) but I actually prefer them to hit me just above my ankles.
Definitely recommend the Jet Crop!

A coworker of mine has these in the burlap print, and they are incredible! So stylish and look awesome. I immediately fell in love, and was wanting a pair. For about a week I was wavering back and forth on to spend the money on the pants considering the weather where I live is going to start cooling down. I originally wanted the black ones, but they were out of size 4. So, my being so plain and always wearing black/white/grey nervously ordered a size 4 in the camo..
A week later when they arrived I was PLEASANTLY surprised.
I had read the reviews on them, that they are too shiny.
Yes they are shiny! But they are just as incredible as the burlap print!
Long story short, if you are wavering back and forth- order now! They are so comfortable and stylish and just feel great on. I got so many compliments wearing these pants than I have ever received before! I could have sized down to a 2 but I am happy enough with the 4 :)
Order. The. Crops!!

I was initially not on the baggy harem style pant bandwagon, but these changed my mind. I am not super trendy, and as a mom I think clothing needs to be cute, versatile, functional and practical (which many Lulu garments are). These are fantastic! I sized down from my normal 6 to a 4 because of the front fabric billowing out. It was a big pooch and sloppy looking rather than a drape. The pants are not as roomy now, but they are still very loose and fit better at the waist and front-very similar to the model's fit in the picture. The 7/8 length is very flattering.
I love the feel and function of the Luxtreme fabric, which is breathable and cool while the weather is still warm. These can be worn casually with Vans or dressed up with ballet flats or sandals. I am shocked at how nice and versatile these are. They do not look or feel like yucky sweat pants yet are so amazing.
I also tried on similar style pants at J. Crew, the Gap and Target which range from more expensive ($98) to only $20 and none were as a nice of fit and feel (or machine washable!) as the Lululemon Jet pants. I highly recommend them!
