I am struggling to find trousers that I like for work. I work in an informal environment, so I can wear jeans, and often end up doing so, just because I can't find any smarter trousers that I actually like. I tried on some M&S modern slim fit trousers last week, but unfortunately they were neither modern, nor slim fitting, so they've gone back.
I like/suit skinny jeans, so I imagine that a nice pair of cigarette pants would be just the thing, if only I knew where to find them.
Also while we're at it, suggestions for decent day/shift dresses along the same lines would also be welcome.
The look I am trying to achieve is professional but still with a bit of personality, and not necessarily "office" style if that makes any sense...
Zara is good for tailoring with a bit more of an edge. I've just bought some ankle length ones with a side slit in navy and absolutely love them, they are really flattering and look fab with pointy courts.
