Edited on 8/8/2015: new smaller top (#2) came today and I think it's better...what say you? Coulottes going in for pocket removal surgery today they're amazing in motion guys!

First off, I realize that this is at most a JFE look on me, but I have been searching high and low (literally) for a silver grey top on the blueish side of the spectrum. When I saw this on the mannequin at Club Monaco, I had to try it...and grabbed some white crepe coulottes to try as well. The details on both pieces are what sold me (even though they may not be best together). The top has 3 tiers of semi-transparent white layers at the bottom. The capris are sheer, so I would have the pockets removed while hemming (if necessary). They have a fantastic side seam detail that is difficult to describe. It's open at the knee and so shows flashes of leg when in motion. The front above the slit continues up with a flange (for lack of a better word) all the way up to the waist. I'm sure you seamstresses out there have the terminology, but maybe you get the drift. I would love to hear what you all think, whether good or bad. Here are my questions that are rattling around in my head. This is so outside my comfort zone/style, even though I have 'lightened up' considerably this Spring/Summer, that I don't trust my judgement 100%.

Where would I wear either/both?
Do the coulottes need to be hemmed, because it would cut into the flap detail if so.
Is the whole kit and caboodle heinously bad, and I should just get over it?

Thanks as usual!
