Starting with the Leopard Pants -Low Rise Super Skinny – 97% cotton, 3% Spandex.
-       Two pockets in the back
-       Two pockets in the front
-       Foxy Jeans logo on the back
-       Color varies throughout from Dark, Medium and Light brown.
-       Zipper and Button in the front
-       size 23 (0)
The Leopard pants by Foxy is definitely a must-have item to purchase from their collection.
Fit:
I normally wear 00/ 0 in pants and went with the 0 on these. I could have been happy with a smaller size as well but I have no complaints on the fit.
I often purchase skinny jeans and find them to fit nicely in some areas, but baggy in other areas. I think it has to do with the way my proportions are. However, I am happy to say that these hug my body in all the right places! There is very minimal rumpling and no loose areas.
Not only is the fit great, but these pants are comfortable. The material is slightly thinner than I thought it would be (not a bad thing)
As I am on the smaller side and no model (5’3), the pants are too long for me, but no hemming is needed! If worn with boots I just rumple them up a bit near the bottom and with heels I fold them discreetly. Because the cut is super skinny and the material is not too thick, the pants being too long does not take away from the look!
The print on these pants is definitely a stand-out piece so I’d personally go simple with the rest of the outfit (shoes, top, accessories).
I just noticed on the right pocket there’s a really small faux pocket on the top of that – but only on that side, which is interesting.  
I highly suggest for you to go purchase these Foxy leopard pants! Especially if you do not have an animal print pant in your wardrobe.


       Style : FX3242ST Black (click picture to enlarge)
Black Pants (Low Rise Skinny) 98% Cotton, 2% Spandex
-       Two Pockets in the back (ones you button up)
-       Triangle Pocket design in the back
-       Red Foxy Jeans Logo on the back with ‘Foxy Jeans’ in Green/Black zebra print and the words “Designed with Love’
-       Black Foxy Button on the Front with Gold Zipper
-       No front pockets, just pleating detail, starting around 1.5 inches from the top of the pant.
I love how slimming these pants are because of the pleating on the front. The material is different from the leopard ones. These black pants has more of a slippery texture similar to almost dress pants. The leopard texture is closer to a jeans feel.
The fit is great, it is body hugging in the right areas, and again, because the material isn’t too thick it’s not a problem if there’s excess material on the bottom. Especially because of the pleating material, it looks natural to rumple the material on the bottom (if there is extra).
Overall, I think this is such a terrific example of classic with a twist. Classic with a special detail to them that makes it different from any other black pant out there. These pants are incredibly versatile and can be great for a casual or dressy event.

I highly recommend these pants to readers – the black pants are terrific for every type of use, and the leopard ones are great to have as a stand-out item in your wardrobe. 
Both are comfortable , fit well, and are true to size. Be sure to check the Foxy website for updates and visit in stores to try these on.
