Children’s (non skinny) jeans/trousers

I need help wise MNetters. I’m struggling with trousers for my DD(3). She’s always been fussy about clothes and can’t stand anything tight. I have to buy her the next size up, and the point where something fits her perfectly to look at she will refuse to wear as apparently “it’s too tiiiight!!!” Not an issue over the summer, she’s happy in sleeveless dresses, loose t-shirts and shorts, but problems arise as the weather turns colder. She’s currently just about still in aged 3-4 (they look perfect on her) and she has some summer bits in 4-5, but I know it won’t be long before she’s insisting that her longer trousers are too small.

I’m trying to be organised this year to avoid the battles we had last, but everywhere I look online trousers are either skinny jeans or tight leggings. Even in the next size up these are often too tight around the ankles for her liking. I’d go for joggers, but as well as being fussy and the most stubborn child I’ve ever met, she also has a clear sense of her own style - joggers apparently aren’t “pretty” enough hmm. Last year I got some lovely soft, lined proper jeans from h & m but they don’t seem to do them anymore.

So can anyone recommend somewhere that do nice non-skinny children’s jeans/trousers? Or at least some that are more generous in the leg?

If not I’ll just have to accept that I have another autumn/winter of my child looking ridiculous in far too big clothes again hmm

I’ve just got my DD3 some wide leg jeans from h and m- really good quality and soft and comfy.

Oh I missed those booksandwine, they might keep DD happy, thanks.

These are very similar, can’t see the exact ones we have online but we literally bought another pair today so they are current stock

Skinny jeans are 'out' according to my teens so you might have some luck this winter.

There is always Boden. Their lined baggies or whatever they are called are extremely comfortable and warm too.

Another option could be to keep her in dresses, knee socks and boots for most of the winter and have an all in one coat for when she is going to the park or things like that. You can get all in one ski suits in Decathlon.

I was going to suggest Boden too.

They look great Books, I’ll get some ordered.

I’m pleased to hear that Icedbun, I’m well over skinny jeans. I’ve checked Boden too (thanks to you too Jelly, and they do have some ‘proper’ jeans. Are the sizes quite generous? Wondering if age 4 is equivalent to 3-4 or more like 4-5. Might just order all the jeans in all the sizes. I hadn’t considered dresses and long socks to be honest but she’d probably be very happy with that. I knew MN would not let me down.
