I need slim fitting black trousers for work.

Not bootleg or cropped.

And pref not too expensive

I have these and they’re great, better quality than you’d expect from the price

My sister has some lovely ones from Next. Think they were only about £20

If you can wear 7/8 length, I got some nice ones from H&M, only £7.99!

Next! I need petite length and know they will fit from here!

Uniqlo- their work trousers are great. I am short (5ft 3) and although the trousers are meant to be ankle length they are full length on me.

Good quality for the price and wash really well.

Next, I find there basics like that are still good quality, and long lasting. A lot of there other stuff isn't great quality and style wise at the moment. M&S sale is worth a look as well if you are passing a store. They can be good for work trousers.

These from Uniqlo are great work trousers. They wash well, don’t need ironing - I have several pairs!

PhyllisWig Sat 11-Aug-18 21:35:08

The ones Luna posted are the ones I have. Best work trousers I've had for years

I wear pull on, straight leg, easy wash/dry (NHS uniform)

Matalan - I love their slim work trousers as I find them a great fit, wash really well and cheap as chips! If you are tall or petite the range of leg lengths they do is good too.

Agree Next is good for trousers but I find they never have the sizes in stock hmm

Am tempted to try Uniqlo from recommendations here too. Are they generally true to size? Never bought from there before and I don't usually have a lot of success with buying online!

Uniqlo. I find they run slightly smaller so I tend to order in two sizes and send back.

BobbinThreadbare123 Sat 11-Aug-18 22:25:23

Uniqlo and M&S. I find Uniqlo match up very nicely ie if I buy a 12 in other shops then a medium in Uniqlo works well.

Another vote for GAP

Uniqlo.. i bought 2 from them n just love them...

mammmamia Sun 12-Aug-18 08:26:55

I have those uniqlo ones after seeing them raves about on here and they have gone really baggy around the bum. So I a on the hunt for other suggestions.

Depends on what "not too expensive" translates as but I like banana republic.

Also just found some great ones in M&S, slightly textured, wool mix. Look far more expensive than the £45 they were.

Sainsbury’s have some in their new range in stores.

Next - good work basics. Plus I get to wear a size smaller as their sizes run quite big so it makes me feel slimmer grin
