Anyone recommend any skinny black trousers? I love my Joni jeans style but need an equivalent to wear for work as we've been banned from wearing jeans!

Sometimes M&S have things like this labelled as Treggings.

Uniqlo have a couple of different types

Rhubarbara Thu 16-Feb-17 07:21:28

How about these?

Gap usually have some, think they're called "skinny bi-stretch" or something? Otherwise, Cos have usually them.

Gap bi skinny stretch are really good

Another vote for Gap. Often get compliments on mine

I bought the Gap ones after seeing them recommended on here and have been really disappointed. I don't think they're particularly flattering and they stretch out/ go baggy after one wear.

Fuzzypeggy Thu 16-Feb-17 16:25:25

That's strange, my gap ones haven't gone baggy at all

MillieMillie Thu 16-Feb-17 16:42:46

I've had a look and they look really low rise? I normally like higher waisted as they suit me better and pull in belly flab

gap but get the 5 % ones
not the 2%

What about black velvet Jonis? No jeans at work for me either but I get away with wearing these. If you're after something a bit smarter, Reiss do some smart workwear skinnies- Darla I think they're called.

I've been on a mission for these on dd's behalf recently.
Next, New Look, and Very all do them and I liked them all. DD, who is very fussy about pocket position, didn't. The New Look ones with zipped front pockets were very nice.
We have settled for Tesco school wear £8 and I ordered a few sizes. The 15/16 age ones were equivalent of at least a woman's size 14 for reference.
I had to wash them before she wore them (yep, she's fussy like that too) and they washed fine, needed an iron though.

MillieMillie Thu 16-Feb-17 18:54:35

So are the gap ones low rise??

I'm not sure I could pull off velvet Joni's, if only! The shape is perfect for me.

New look I find a bit cheap looking

Plain black jodphurs? They are thicker and more structured, but a similar fitted all over style. Made to last too!

Are you near a saddlery to go and try some on?

beanfilledfish Thu 16-Feb-17 19:02:20

Uniqlo legging jeans

I always buy Next black skinny work trousers. Really flattering, I have a couple of pairs but they wash and wear well

TeacherABC Thu 16-Feb-17 19:15:39

M & S are by far the best I've tried, jeggings, skinny or super skinny styles, long, medium, short, low rise or high rise. They are so comfortable and wash very well.

Aha - my specialist subject, MillieMillie.

I basically live in skinny black trousers when I'm at work (though currently on mat leave so mostly living in black leggings instead).

J Crew does an amazing trouser-legging called the Pixie pant which, though v v v v spenny, do last and retain their shape well. I love these as they flatter my 'athletic' thighs.

I am currently wearing this pair from COS which is a little straighter in the leg, but has a nice high elasticated waist:

I've found them in Reiss in the past, but the quality has been really poor (seams falling apart exposing the bum kind of poor quality).

French Connection used to do a good pair back in the day, but I haven't tried there in years.

And I did have a nice pair of maternity jeggings from M&S so might be worth a look there too...

CoffeeDiamonds Thu 16-Feb-17 19:36:01

Cos slim fit trousers. £59 and worth EVERY PENNY

CoffeeDiamonds Thu 16-Feb-17 19:37:22

they are!

FiveGoMadInDorset Thu 16-Feb-17 19:37:49

I buy Gap ones for DD who likes hi rise, got some black stretch trousers from Monsoon the other day

EatsShitAndLeaves Thu 16-Feb-17 19:41:39

I've got the M&S treggings---- (navy and black).

Love them - bought them in "short" so they cut off at my ankle.

They are really comfy, wash well and look really smart for work with both flats and heels.

Tbh I think getting the short version is key though - the standard length didn't look half as nice when on and dare I say it a bit frumpy.
