Alternative to jeans?

What do you wear as an alternative to jeans? Just that, really.
I am sick and tired of jeans, thus spent a couple of days (deleted) weeks in the shops and online trying to find an alternative- nada, zero, zilch. It's either jeans or office trousers or chinos.
Does an alternative (not the dresses or skirts!!) even exist?

I just ordered some from Uniqlo - think they are cords though, so if you don't like that idea then I'm out of advice!

Thanx, ATourchofInsanity (great name!), will have a look at those.

Cords, cords, cords - I am thrilled they are in style this winter, I can just carry in wearing the ones I wore last winter grin

Anyone else ;)?

Cords, leggings, chinos, thick tights and skirt / dress / maxi dress...

LOTS of choices, I don't really like jeans either!

Queenmarigold, I wear cords (atourchofsanity, thanx for reminding about them- wore my old ones today!), don't wear leggings, wear chinos but only with ballerina shoes- cold for them now...
I do wear skirts and dresses, but want to find some trousers which won't be boring black/ navy straight leg ones or jeans- I want some interesting cut, some interesting details, I want something different...

What about the current trend for thick tights and shorts?

Got cords from Uniqlo - they are so so comfortable. Brilliant! Looking for the perfect aubergine coloured pair but in a skinnier fit than Uniqlo. What about dresses and wool tights with boots?

Paribus Mon 22-Oct-12 22:26:00

Sweetheart, nope, never wear shorts ;).
Millie, congrats with the cords! I do wear dresses with boots, quite often actually, but I need smth which is not jeans or plain trousers....

Well, if you want something a bit 'out there' then leather is meant to be coming back I think? Get the talc out and dust down smile Other than that all I can think of is the patterned trews everywhere. I'm not quite bold enough for those though!

Millie, those Uniqlo cords, how's the fitting? The size chart on their website is confused

I'm a 10 Puffpants and wear a 27 in Uniglo. They are ridiculously long though with a 33" leg!

Millie1 - Mrs CB has these and likes them.

Millie1 Tue 23-Oct-12 09:57:47

Thanks Dexter - had seen MrsCB recommend those on another thread. They look perfect!

Puffpants I'm 5'9 and a 10 and got a 28 and they fit perfectly (am a 33'' leg though) smile
