What would you wear a fine knit sparkly jumper with (apart from skinnies!)

Just that really, my black jeans are faded and my dark blue jeans seem a bit wrong for wearing with a sparkly knit, don't know why.
Looking for inspiration!

Just a thought, I re-dyed some faded black clothing with a Dylon machine dye. It worked perfectly on the knees of my black jeans to get a bit more wear out of them. Same with blue jeans that had gone similar but used the indigo colour. It's only a fiver.

I've got black velvet/devoré skinny jeans (Monsoon) that may well meet a sparkly top for NYE.

If not that, then a black devoré mini (bought in 1980s, can't remember from where) with black opaques.

Leather leggings? Next do a good pair which are obviously "pleather" but look real and fit lovely and are not too much if you know what I mean!

Whistles leather a line skirt

black mini skirt and thick opaque tights or cropped cigarette trousers with pointed heels

Leather mini and opaques.

Cigarette trousers or longer straight skirt. Mini - depends on your age!

The hush ruched skirt, opaques and ankle boots. fsmile

"Mini - depends on your age!"

Strongly disagree.

Leather pencil skirt.

Another vote for cigarette trousers and heels or a leather skirt, opaque tights and boots.

I have a silver faux leather mini from next £22

Disco pants, black shorts and opaques, short leather skirt and opaques. That's what I've been wearing my sparkly jumper with this year.

Leather mini skirt and opaques

I have a pleather mini from Next that's lovely with winter knits, and they also have a black velvet mini (which I also have) that would go well.

Gap have lovely black ankle-skimming trousers that look a bit like tuxedo trousers, they're beautiful this time of year, too.

I've got this one:

I quite like the faux leather mini skirts but am wary of getting one, like I'll not feel right in it, not sure why. I couldn't war it with a black biker could I? Maybe that's why. P leather equivalent of double denim!

I've worn it with boden ruched and suede ankle boots. Think I should have worn some different shoes. It was all a bit too matte looking back.

I still wear very short skirts at 46. What the hell has age got to do with it?

Mini skirt, opaques and ankle boots sound great.
