What to wear with ankle skimming tapered black trousers?

I bought a pair of these in Zara over the summer but nothing seems to look right....I noticed the fashion expert in the Guardian suggested heeled Mary Janes - not my thing though. I fear these trousers will never leave the hanger.

I wear ankle skimming trousers all the time, flat pumps/ballerinas

Wearing them today. Black ballerinas for the commute, burgundy point courts for the office.

I have some from Zara too - I roll them up a bit but now don't know what to wear them with. I have worn them with non-heeled mary janes but it's getting a bit cold for draughty ankles now...

I wear with patent loafers in the day and black courts for going out.

I can never find ballerinas to fit - they slip off or pinch my toes, so I gave up looking...maybe loafers might be more suited to my feet and more suited to a day time casual look than heels.

Pretty much anything I'd think-I wear a similar pair with flats, spindly courts, slim wedges...

Black flats, loafers or brogues.
Ankle boots with a nice dip to front to lengthen leg.

I cannot get on board with the maryjane concept, personally.

Love the idea of pairing the pants with patent brogues, and a gorgeous slouchy jumper with maybe a silk shirt collar peeping out from a crew neck (please bear with my fantasy here!). Or else a loose, nicely fitting shirt or blouse, a long sleeve breton tee, a nice deep mulberry coloured linen tee....

Also would work with casual blazers, silk vest style cami's beneath.
