I seem to have acquired a pair of black leather trousers

I have no idea how that happened - one minute, I am aimlessly browsing ebay, next thing I know a lovely parcel arrives at my house.

They are gorgeous: soft, supple leather, lined, simple straight cut. They fit shock

So, what do I wear them with?
I am 48, pear shaped, 5'6'', size 14, not terribly long in the leg, so heels, yes?

Any ideas for tops?
Are they daft with boots?

Are they a daft idea altogether??

I am all giddy with excitement so need guidance before I disgrace myself!

You have broken the cardinal rule of LINKAGE ;)

They are another new basic: with looser sweaters and sweatshirts for example, or with a jacket and a loose t-shirt (with curved hem?). Footwear: heels or high tops as a starting point? With boots, depends on boot style and shape, try them on.

Yeah, its difficult to say without knowing the fit.

If they are skinny slim then longer tops not tucked in; silk blouses in the evening, jumpers during the day.

I guess the wider the trouser the shorter and slimmer the top would be a good rule, but nothing tucked in.

If they are really skinny, then the trendy thing is to dress them down with converse during the day (with a longline jumper). If they are wider then I'd leave them for evening wear, with a heel, stiletto or block heel, not a wedge. Shoe or boot.

Thank you, both smile

This is them - I am not sure how well this will show up?
£25 - bargain!
The current v tight, v skinny ones are £699 on the Jaeger website!

I thought maybe white shirt, untucked, curved hem might work with heels?

I am sitting here stroking them grin

Nope, definitely NOT v skinny - not the trousers and certainly not me!

They are like 5 pocket jeans I suppose, straight, but not skinny.
