What black trousers for a night out?

I normally wear skinny jeans but I get really hot in them when dancing. So I'm thinking perhaps get a smart tight black pair of trousers that aren't as thick as denim? I'm short but slim, what would be the best style/length?

Gap bistretch? Or Boden Richmonds. I prefer the Gap.

Do the gap come in a short leg do you know? I haven't shopped in gap for about a decade!

I think they do petite, yes. There are always codes too. I ordered a navy pair last weekend with 35% off.

What is the most material do you know? Not something that will give me knee bags?

I have a pair of really skinny trousers from Zara-they are almost like really thick leggings. I think they do a slightly different pair every year type thing. I've had mine for a few years and they are still not baggy at the knees

Iv never really looked at Zara, do they do a short leg do you know?

Oh I'm not sure actually but I'm 5'2" and those ones are ok on me. I can wear them with shoes or boots.

I'm the same height as you, that has spurred me on to have a look! Thanks!
