Trousers for the Longedy Leggedies

Having just thrown away all my trousers because I am definitely not a siz 10 any more I realise that I don't possess any smartish trousers at all. Just jeans and leggings. So I need new trousers, but:
Firstly - I don't really like black. Or dark grey or navy or depressing worky colours. Nobody pays me a salary to be business like any more so I'll be damned if I'm going to dress in colours that depress me.
Secondly, the only trousers that are ever long enough for me tend to be labelled "Long" in M&S or Next. And are black.

I keep seeing lovely green, camel, taupe trousers and trying them on hopefully only for them to flap above my ankles in a mocking, clownlike way.

Any other longedy leggedies who have got this sorted?

It's a bugger sad
Next had some nice looking khaki skinnies in their Tall section online....they sold out in 2 days
My wardrobe contains 8 pairs of jeans, 3 pairs of black jeans and 6 pairs of black trousers.
I yearn for something different. No one makes them. LTS And Tall girls don't fit.

Can I have your old size ten trousers? I've got the opposite problem, lost weight so have thrown out all my lovely larger trousers and stuck with M and S black.

I find Zara and mango good for long legs
