I want some slim/skinny navy blue leg attire. Not leggings, not skinny jeans and not jeggings. Not dark denim blue, just navy blue. I've been searching all afternoon and can't think of the correct name or description.
Is there such a thing? I want seams at the sides like jeans but I don't want them to look denimy at all as even if double denim becomes fashionable, I'm not partaking.

Please find me some 'things'.

Wallis do trousers that are like you describe - they are stretchy and very comfortable- I have several pairs in various colours and they do them in a nice navy. I'll try to do a link

Those are really nice.

Ooh, I like those Dfg. How high is the waist? I hate low and medium rise trousers as I find them too uncomfortable.

These? Gap have some others too. Also do navy slim chinos but not sure if that's what you are looking for.

On me they are proper waist height -level with my belly button. Sizing seems normal I get a 14 and they're just right. I love em!

Thank you all for the recommendations. I ordered the Wallis ones (nice trousers but made me look like my mom blush), 4 pairs from next and 3 from asos. All being returned. I think I have an aversion to navy in general so that's probably why none of them felt right. I have kept a bikini, a big jumper and a shirt though grin

What else could I wear with a denim type baggy shirt dress (when its not bare leg weather)?

Oh dear sorry about that. I'm possibly as old if not older than your mum! Why not wear some leggings with the dress?

Do they have to be navy? If they're to go with denim you could chose pretty much any colour.

I tried the Wallis ones on at lunchtime. They were comfy but not very flattering on me.
