I have tree sized large thighs and I want to find styles to suit me and them, there's no personal shopping/stylisty people in striking distance so I'm hoping that you wonderful s&b ladies could give me some pointers?
I too have big thighs! Slimmer looking fits often work better especially if they have some stretch in the fabric. Ignore the people who say bootcuts are not stylish - they are good for balancing the proportions of your leg. Straight legs also good. Skinnies work best tucked into chunky ankle boots as once again it balances things a bit.
Avoid flares and boyfriend style like the plague - too much material swishing around the bottom half of your leg just seems to emphasize big thighs. Wide leg trousers a total no no for the same reason. In jeans avoid too much fading down the front - solid colours better IMO. And avoid patterns and anything shiny. Cropped styles make the bottom half of your leg look shorter which can make thighs look bigger than they are
Would be good to know your budget but in the past I have had success in Wallis, Oasis, Monsoon etc. M&S have chinos ATM that I tried and thought were ok. Lots of people on here swear by the M&S jeggings but they don't work on me.
You just need to try on loads. Helps if you can wear even a small heel - I find even an inch makes a difference in giving a longer leg effect.
I have the same problem and agree with libertychick. The best jeans by far have been levi's skinny bootcut, esp in dark indigo. In fact I've just bought a second identical pair as my old ones were fading a bit. My legs have always been about my worst feature and I actually get compliments about having skinny legs when I wear them! Especially with a long top well over the hips, and high/platform boots.
