For random dog related reasons I need to get a pair of non-boring coloured trousers before Saturday. Made extra difficult by being a weird shape so finding trousers is difficult at the best of times.
So I need straight jeans shape (although they don't have to be jeans) - I'm size 14-16 arse, with much slimmer waist and legs. Skinnies look awful, chinos look worse (something to do with the size of my arse and the volume of fabric flapping round my thighs).
And I need a colour - so green, or a brightish lighter blue, or even an orange or a dark pink - just not black, white, brown or navy.
Next day delivery, or I can get to most chain type shops to pick up.
I can't find ANYTHING - please can any amazing shoppy people help?!!

Thanks both - the sainsbury's ones are a bit washed out - need something stronger and a bit smarter. The M&S ones have the chino thigh effect that make me look like I'm wearing jodhpurs...

I may not have fully understood the brief in terms of being jean like? Why can't you just buy blue jeans?
Might be completely wrong, but here are some ideas:

They do next day to Waitrose store.

Or these?

Thanks Eleoura - straight jeans type shape - I need the definition over the bum or I just look enormous. But I need smarter than denim jeans, and a strong, bright colour.

John Lewis have a sale on and might have something smarter?

Seasalt are usually good for smart/casuals in brighter colours:

You should try magic trousers, they're made of a stretch twill, I think they're amazing, they are so so flattering, so comfortable, wash well and can be rolled up with trainers, tucked under to crop or left longer to tuck in boots. I must have 6 pairs now, I even wear them in white, which would never ever happen. Also only £25.

Look at Uniqlo Smart trousers - they sound like they might fit the bill. Good luck!

How about these? Also next day to Waitrose.

Hope they are suitable and you must tell us how you get on with your doggie related activity.
