Can anyone recommend some skinny black trousers / jeggings that look ok enough for work but fit nicely, higher on the waist and tight round the ankles.

I'm only 5ft 2 but most I've tried have baggy ankles so look daft with ankle boots. I'm a size 8/10

Bought some super skinny high waisted trousers from h&m yesterday that are tight all the way down. They had loads of other colours too aswell as black.

I just bought some 'ex Bershka' black high waist skinny jeans on ebay, brand new (end of line or something?) for £8. They are lovely, really nice quality and a good fit. I'm 5"4 and they don't bunch up on the ankle for me. Definitely recommend them.

I have about 3 pairs of fat face jeggings (essentially tight, soft jeans) which are fab.

Asda wonderfit skinny jeans. High waist, comfortable and they stretch and when you throw them in the wash they go back to there original size. I'm 5ft 3 and there short ones are about right. I like them so much I have 3 in different colours. There £20 but have lasted over a year and still look good as new

What's your budget? The Amanda jeans from Hobbs are great and do all those things but aren't cheap.

I second the asda wonderfit jeans. So comfy and I've had loads of compliments whilst wearing them.

For trousers- Gap Bi-stretch. There's always a 30% code around if you look. I think mine were £30 something with the code. They are amazing.

Asda wonderfit skinny jeans

They are the best jeans I have ever worn. I remember 18 year old me bawling when I fell over and ripped the knee on my first pair! I cut a hole in the other knee and still wore them for another 2 years 😂 I've brought multiple pairs since then.

Zara ones are good

Afish...How true to size are the Bershka ? They dont have my true size and even though Asda may think so there is no way I'm a 14

Oldraver - I'm usually a 14 but comfortably fit in a 12 in Bershka

Mint Velvet treggings

Just looked online for the Asda wonderful but they only have xs in short. Would that be a size 8?

Littlebee76 Wed 05-Oct-16 15:55:35

Scrap that, they don't have any small or xs sizes now sad

I'm usually a 10-12 and find the 10 a good fit. So generous I guess (okay, okay I'm a 12)

Littlebee76 Wed 05-Oct-16 19:35:03

Such a shame they don't have my size!!

Comingfoccacia Wed 05-Oct-16 19:36:58

I got some fab ones "Eden" at Dorothy Perkins. Currently on offer

stripeyzebra32 Wed 05-Oct-16 21:03:47

Asda wonderfit small is a 10-12 but there small but get bigger IYSWIM I wore mine at a size 12 when I gained 2 stone and I'm now a 8/10 after loosing 3 stone depending on what shop and they are the perfect size now. Best jeans for that reason

I have Dorothy Perkins black jeans, Bailey I think they're called. Super comfy, stretchy and super skinny. I wear them for work and they're perfect.

Littlebee76 Wed 05-Oct-16 21:48:31

So far all the suggestions have either sold out in my size or aren't petite sad
I'm destined not to get any!

Simplecountrygirl Wed 05-Oct-16 21:53:41

H&M slim or skinny fit black trouser/ jegging things!

GipsyHill Wed 05-Oct-16 21:57:21

I get my black jeggings from New Look. I like them because they don't lose their shape and are tight at the bottom so good for tucking into boots.

I'm also not as petite as you so the high waist hides my belly grin
