Summer trousers / jeans recommendations for a 40+ size 14?
Having spent the winter in black skinny jeans & boots, I am now stuck what to wear now the weather is a bit warmer, but not yet warm enough for skirts / cropped trousers.
My black skinnies are looking faded anyway and don't always look right with my summer tops. Add to this the problem that I am over 40 and a size 14 so pale skinny jeans are out - far too unflattering! (I tried on some khaki ones and it wasn't a nice sight )
I'd like some jeans that would look nice with pumps / ballet flats and also I was thinking maybe some tailored cotton trousers, or chinos?
A lot of shops seem to have in baggy linen trousers but I find they just get rumpled so quickly and really aren't flattering on the thighs and make my hips look huge!
Any tips of what you are wearing at the moment, or shops to suit me? I tried Next today and it was a disaster. Thank you!
Boden Rachel Chinos are nice - full length but you can roll up the cuffs for 7/8. I got the grey which is lovely, but quite pale if that's a concern. They have navy and the fabric is not too thick for summer.
