I used to adore these types of trouseres when I was a teacher. I haven't worn this style for years. These are from Next, and were brand new but only £1 in a charity shop, so I figured I'd give them a retro-go.
Part of my was curious as to how I'd like the fit, back when I used to live in trousers like this I was a 12/14 and these are an 8.
I'm still not sure, but am going to wear them and see what I think about them by the end of the day!
