What trousers to go with these shoes?

I bought these shoes the other day and want some trousers to wear to work with them, I'm an extremely curvy size 10, 5.5 and have short legs. I also have an aversion to "shiny" workwear fabrics.

I'd appreciate any recommendations and know I'm being a fussy cow

Cropped slim fitting suit trousers?

That's the kind of the thing I was wondering about thejoys but I had a look today in the only shops I could get to, marks and next and everything was just shiny.

I think I want flat fronted trousers and maybe wool and just don't know where to start, it's so far removed from my normal work dresses.

Cigarette jeans or denim leggings will suit those shoes, well at least for me grin

Definitely slim trousers, Mango have some nice ones

OP, I find Cos sizing pretty standard, the same sizes as Zara where I shop a lot. Hope this helps.

Cigarette trousers! Have you tried Next, they usually have some in different prints as well.

Just bought my mum and sister cigarette trousers & they like them. Then I bought myself denim leggings it's on sale too.

I have a free voucher code £20 off £50 spend online at Next, let me know if you require one.

As the weather gets cooler, what do we wear to cover [or not] the area of leg between the shoe and the bottom of the trouser leg? I never seem to get it right.
