Today's orphan is a pair of bootcut trousers. They're taupe, I think - a mid-range grey-ish brown with just a tinge of pink in the color. I tried to wear them a few weeks ago with burgundy, but there wasn't enough contrast in the colors to work, so I changed. Today I'm trying them with a cream sweater and burgundy scarf and boots. (And my cream/black/burgundy plaid belt barely showing in the pics).

The trousers fit well, but aren't really heavy enough for winter (I added silk long underwear today and am fine), and are a little too stiff for me to want to wear in warm weather. Plus I find the color hard to work with - I can see it with white or black - would it go with anything else?

Does it work? Should these trousers stay? Suggestions for improvement?
