Stuck in a skinny jeans rut!

What other kind of trousers are in these days? I have nothing but skinny jeans and I'm bored to the back teeth with them.

If it helps, I'm a size 8 on top, 8/10 on the bottom with a bit of a post-c sections puffy tummy I'd like to hide.

Help me, stylish people!

I never have the right shoes to wear anything but leggings and skinny jeans. I'm trying to move towards skirts and dresses that work with tights and boots.

Ooh - just tried on a dress from years ago - it was good for stomach-hiding! smile I will need to find tights that don't end up sagging around my knees after an hour though.

Yy, I always feel like I have no idea what shoes to wear with any other kinds of trousers. And I always buy brown boots to go with dark blue denim, then feel like they don't work with black tights/dresses.

I like skirts and dresses but find them too cold in this weather. I felt a bit bored of all my skinny jeans so bought one dark green pair and ripped holes in another black pair.
Not much of an update but I feel I have more choice now.

I'm trying to move away from black, so bought brown boots and yep most of my wardrobe goes with black atm. I've been shopping in charity shops lately and loving the results but as usual I've bought far too many dresses and they go with nothing lol

I'd get some of the new kick flare jeans and some cigarette pants.

I know they're not hugely in but I love peg trousers. Just avoid any with too many pleats at the top. I like how they look with lace up flats.

I loved tapered trousers or those 'jogger' type ankle graze type trousers. Thy are lovely on
