I start a new job next week, and I'm going to be out of the office some of the time meeting clients. I'm not comfortable in the full on trouser suit look, it's just not me. But I also realise my usual black skinny jeans won't always be suitable.
I bought some skinny fit black stretch chinos from h&m, which I like, but my normal size 14 are a bit snug and I think the 16 would be too big (crappy h&m sizing).
Maybe a cigarette trouser but I'm 5ft5 and thighs not as slim as I would like, so wonder if they'd look shit.
Please help, I'm really not sure where/what to try.
I have 4 pairs of Gap bi-stretch in different colours. They're well-fitted, wash well and don't go baggy at the knees. Have to shave my ankles for them, though, with isn't great. They look good no matter what you put them with, though, and the colour choices are great.
