What do you wear on your bottom half?

I seem to have 3 wardrobes full of various tops yet hardly any bottoms!
I have 1 work skirt, 1 pair of work trousers, a few Joni jeans - but that's it!

What do you wear?!

At this time of year it's always skirts (I like jigsaw & toast) and boots because I get cold on the commute with exposed ankles.

Sweaty Betty leggings with Ash virgin high tops.

I wear jeans a lot but have a few different styles (skinnies, girlfriends, straight legs, mom jeans), colours (grey, black, dark and light blue) and textures (coated) to vary it a bit. I also wear skirts (denim, leather, suede, tube) with ankle boots and tights now and bare legs and trainers in the spring, sandals in the summer. I also have a couple of pairs of culottes but don't tend to wear them until it's warmer.

I work from home at the moment but when I was working in an office I mainly wore dresses as it was so much easier to just throw them on and not have to worry about matching stuff up.

I find sizing on gym clothes to come up small, hence tend to buy larger than usual size - and this helps as it doesn't cut into / emphasise the wobble too much.

Agree high waisted is key. Wear long line vest with cropped loose top layer.

Almost always skinny jeans or a dress with opaque tights. I wear one particular jumper dress a lot these days. It's becoming a bit of a uniform blush. I only have one or two skirts but lots of dresses.

At this time of year a lot of short-ish skirts and opaques - today the Hush ruched skirt with 100 denier opaques and black Stan Smiths - and also jeans, either skinny or mom style.

When it warms up I'll be in midi skirts and dresses, and I've recently bought a couple of pairs of wide-legged cropped trousers. I still wear jeans a lot in summer too.

Judy yo might be just e person I need. I just posted a thread about getting the Hush skirt to work for me...maybe I need black footwear...?

Wide leg trousers.
I love them.
I have more trousers than anything else

Where do you get wide leg trousers? I can only find black dress trousers despite always looking out for them!

I wear my Hush skirt with heeled ankle black boots and black opaque tights.

I get my trousers from asos, hotpatooties, collectif and zara.
All mine were in the sale.

I don't really like jeans (on me, others seem to carry them off).

This time of year I'll be in short skirts, opaques and ankle boots. I'm also a fan of the "winter shorts" look so wear a lot of shorts of various styles with opaques.
