Work Trousers

(10 Posts)

I need a pair of work trousers, preferably navy or black, size 12-14.

Ideally I'd like a pair made from more natural materials, either straight cut or a slight bootleg cut.

I am finding it impossible to find any that I love.

Can anyone help?

I'm your size and live in Boden Bistro and Chelsea trousers. They are cotton stretch and perfect work trousers

I found some smart-enough cropped cotton trousers in TK Maxx, but that was pure luck. Not sure why it's so hard to find cotton trousers!

Gap true straight or modern boot? Think those are the right names anyway. Or slim or tailored crop if you'd like ankle length.

M&S tapered leg trousers are really flattering and only about £19.50 a pair smile

Boden Chelsea turn ups.

Thanks for the ideas.

I'm going shopping at the weekend so will check out the shops mentioned.

The Boden Chelsea look good too so I will order a pair to try today - thanks for the tip as I wouldn't normally shop there!

How do the boden chelsea turn up trousers fit? I'm 5'3 and 8-10 on the bottom. Is it better to go for the 10R?

othgraph I would say the Chelsea turn ups are true to size and are very comfortable due to stretchiness... hth smile
