smart trousers for short people

I've got a new job in a school library after working in retail for years, and now I need to sort out a working wardrobe!
My problem is that I am short! Where do short people go to buy trousers that don't drag along the floor?

I buy normal length trousers and re hem them shorter (or get dry cleaners to do it).

I have occasionally found ones that didn't need taking up but only if I wear mid to high heels.

I guess petite ranges would be ok without taking up but I've never found a petite range I like.

Sorry not helpful! Hope someone else has some more useful ideas

thanks minipie - I think I might have found some in h&m that I can get away with, however I'm heading to the craft shop to pick up supplies to hem with as a back up plan!

I'm 4 foot 11 and find that M&S short length trousers generally fit OK.

I've found some of the shorter length cigarette style trousers in Dorothy Perkin's work really well.

thanks nickEcave and Thurlow - I will have a look at those!

These are the ones I have, and I love them. Loads of people in my office have them actually! You couldn't wear them with socks but they look great with pumps, and they've washed incredibly well for the price.

thanks Thurlow - they look ideal! Ordered a pair smile
