The color is as expected, and the material is very good but thin. The pants were more flared than expected, but I am in love with that aspect of it. I usually find shorts to make my butt look weird, but these do the opposite! Furthermore, there is an elastic part at the back, which allows for some room (especially if you are going out to eat). For reference, I am an XS-S in US sizing, my waist is 67cm, and my hips are 94cm, and I got this in a medium. The waistband fits snugly but is more stretchy than it looks. However, these will definitely need ironing.
