So I am officially giving up on jeans for now. I find jeans the most versatile and useful piece in my wardrobe - by far the items I wear most - but the dearth of well-fitting, NON sausage-casing, reasonably priced jeans for my pear shape means that I just have to do without them (I know I could go on a long and involved and probably expensive search for the perfect jeans, but the idea just fills me with dread.) My high-stretch jeans feel uncomfortable, unflattering and too young for me.
So! My question: what do you Fabbers who don't wear jeans wear instead? I have a fairly refined style (my style motto is 'urban luxe.' I am looking for bottoms that are chic, versatile, flattering and comfortable, and can be dressed up or down. Any options for me?
