Fashion Review: Tell Me About It, Stud Wet Look Capris
Initially I was apprehensive when I saw the Wetlook capri pants by Coquette on EdenFantasys. My first thought was that they were only for thin girls. Luckily I try to break out of that mindset these days. Since there were already a few reviews to peruse I checked them out. In seemed to me that they looked hot on ladies of all sizes and fit true to size. These are available in sizes small, medium, large, extra large and 1X/2X.
I wear a size 10-12 in pants (as always, no specific measurements due to my history of disordered eating). According to the Coquette size chart a large will fit a size 12-14, 30-32″ waist and 40-42″ hips. I probably could have sized down to the medium in these and still had them fit. Their medium is listed as a 10-12. However I wanted to wear them lower. Plus I have a booty and thighs to think about. I am also 5’4″ tall to give you an idea of where they may hit you depending on your height.
Of course I measured them myself as well. Unstretched the waist measures 28″ but easily stretches to over 33″. The hips measure 34″ and easily stretch to over 40″. The inseam of the capris is 19″. The length from the top of the pant to the bottom is about 25″.
The pants come in a simple plastic bag with the name of the item and the size listed on a sticker on the bag. They are folded and the material sticks to itself so the pants initially appear smaller than they actually are.
The Coquette tag is attached to the pants with a ribbon and a pin. The tag mentions that they are from Coquette’s Darque collection (by the way, a ton of items in the Darque collection are super sexy). The inside of the tag shows a model wearing the capris with a matching wet look top from Coquette.
I know that frankly fashion rules say large thighs shouldn’t be shiny but I enjoy throwing all fashion rules out the window. Here I’ve paired these with a simple black tank top that is actually a workout top but is so fun that I have often worn it out at night.
I LOVE these capris. They are comfy and they make me feel like Sandy at the end of Grease.
So when I wore them out to a local bar I wore the above paired with my faux leather bomber that I’ve been sporting forever and my faux leather boots.
I felt very sexy and comfortable while wearing these out. Since these are leggings didn’t feel overly hot like I have in the past in those thick pleather pants that we used to wear in the 90s. I actually plan on wearing these outdoors this summer.
They do ride low in the back when you are sitting. I had on a cute black glittery thong, so when it peeked out it wasn’t a big deal. Plus I was wearing the tank and jacket. However I’d recommend maybe some boycut panties instead so they don’t peak out.
These capris are 80% nylon and 20% spandex. According to the inner tag they are to be hand washed only and then hung to dry.
Of course any sexy black top that you already have at home will probably look fab with these. I highly recommend buying a pair. They are at a great price point as well.
