J. Crew Minnie Pants + Missoni Scarf

Top: Ann Taylor Satin Sleeveless Tier Top
Bottom: J. Crew Minnie Pants in Grey
Shoes: Nina Ricci Peep Toe Bow Slingbacks in Silver
Coat: Zara
Scarf: Missoni Infinity Scarf

I decided to try J. Crew’s Minnie pants. I have been hearing that it’s flattering on all body types. Since it was on sale during Black Friday with 25% off, might as well try it.

I do like how it fits. It elongates my legs making them look leaner and it slims down my hips. Much kudos to the pants. Unfortunately it itches and feels so scratchy when I put it on. The inside fabric is a bit rough and scratchy. Perhaps a defect on my pair?

Luckily, after wearing it for an hour, the scratchiness went away. I guess I got used to the material. The stretchy material and semi high waist is great for shaping my body and helps hide a bit of tummy.

Many women after childbirth are left with a tummy. So I do feel like J. Crew touted this Minnie Pants very accurately. I do find also what helps hide my tummy are tiered tops that have diagonal layers. This Ann Taylor Satin Tiered Stretch Top is a lifesaver. The tiers help hide my tummy while accentuating my upper body. This is one of my favorite tips because I can easily wear it with shorts, jeans, slacks, skirts etc.

This is my first Missoni scarf. I splurged and totally adore the multicolored chevron design. It is so light, poofy and warm. I want to snuggle with it.



Did anyone pick up this Minnie pants? What’s your review on it? How would you style it?

  1. Alright…..so are you done with your shopping…..yet? I never hit the sale at j.crew or when I do it is 30% off the regular price… I love these minnie pants but in Chicago this isn’t the mos practical piece in my wardrobe as it is too cold for something like this. Happy Holidays.
