Silk evening trousers?

So, in my head, I have the most chic outfit for a special evening.....

silk trousers (slim fit or peg style, cropped at ankle for preference)
silk tank/cami
slouchy sequin jacket with shawl collar (in navy....already own)

Much trauling of sites and real life stores is proving fruitless. Either items are hideously bulky polyester faux silk (I don't mind polyester, per se...I do mind bulky could be used as curtains fabric)

I have, in desperation, ordered these:

these from Hobbs but I fear they are way too shiny to team with sequin jacket

and these:
from Anthropologie which despite being polyester are hopefully not bulky

As you can see, I am not afraid of a bit of colour and I would describe my style as chic bohemian (yes, that made me wince too but I am struggling here).......think Laura Bailey, without the long legs/house in Notting Hill.

I have already ordered and returned these from ASOS and these from Whistles .....which I know wouldn't work with navy but I was desperate and would forego the navy link.

Please help smile

Pure have a pair here. Pure silk, but not cheap.

I like the cut of those but would prefer to avoid black. That was part of the problem with the Whistles ones I ordered. They were okay but just looked so.....dull.

I like the asos ones best.

Wow the Strand of silk site is amazing. Really beautiful.

Like the ones from Nelly too - However, think the style could either be elegantly relaxed or pj-esque! Will order to try as they are a bargain anyway.

Off to take a look at J Crew too.

Thanks for suggestions so far smile
