I bought these pants as an item that could be casual or professional and they definitely fit that bill. They're a bit heavy but comfortable. I think they're going to be best for early spring or fall but I think even in the winter they'll work despite being capris. I've worn them with a pair of booties and they look great. I also bought the matching blazer and they work perfectly. My stomach hangs a little so they are a little unflattering in that area but that's kind of a problem with all pants for me and these are on the middle of a scale of hiding that to really showing it all. The accompanying blazer hides that area well too without making it look like I'm trying to hide anything. I bought in my usual additionelle size and they fit well!
