Warm trousers ? I'm always cold when everyone else is warm . In the house I have already started wearing pj bottoms but I feel like I haven’t got dressed. It would be good to hear of recommendations for decent ones I could wear outside.

I wear ‘Simply Robell’ they sell some which are fleece lined. Easy to wear and wash. They can be an everyday trouser or dressed up for the evening and come in lots of different colours

When I'm feeling really cold I wear leggings under my trousers.

Gemini1789 Tue 01-Oct-19 17:13:31

Thanks. I’ll look them up. Brrrrh !

I too wear leggings under my trousers. Simples ??

you can get fleece lined leggings ,they dont look thicker than the ordinary ones and are fine under a long top or dress

I wear leggings under my trousers and over trousers on top when it's really cold.
I hope you can get cosy. There's nothing worse than being cold.

Primark does fleece lined leggings that you could wear under trousers or with a skirt. They look like thick black tights, are very cosy and don’t cost a lot.

I was going to suggest fleece-lined leggings, too. I have a pair and they are lovely and warm.

Some places may also sell fleece-lined jeans (denims), although I am not sure what's available in your area.

I have the opposite problem never feel the cold and hate layers. Am currently still wearing a dress and thin cardi and no tights to work. Still wearing espadrilles. May go onto tights/shoes after half term

My friend has Reynards disease and she’s always cold she bought some fleece leggings from primary and said they were great.

Tights under trousers keep you warm.

I don't wear tights under trousers but I know people who do and they say it works for them.

Me too Twiceasnice I'm still wearing sandals and lightweight clothing, hate being hot.

Another vote for fleece lined leggings. I wear them under trousers and stay warm and cozy. Some Craghoppers winter fleece lined walking trousers kept me dry and warm in Northern Norway in February, even outside at night watching the Northern Lights. . Expensive though and not particularly elegant.

I suggest you try thermal leggings/footless tights. I have a pair which I wear under jeans when it’s really cold and they are brilliant. They are very lightweight (hardly know you are wearing them) and they keep me beautifully warm when walking the dog . Can’t remember where I bought them from, John Lewis or M&S I would think.

I bought ski thermals to go under trousers in the winter, they are very fine but do the job. Bought mine in Sainsbury's.

I was going to say thermal underwear. When it's cold I have a long sleeved vest and long johns. A pair of warm fleecy socks helps as well.

Two layers is the best because you have an insulating layer. At home you could pull a pair of track suit trousers over your pyjama trousers.

To save on thermal underwear, wear pyjama bottoms under jeans or trousers.

I have a pair of cashmere and wool tights.
Absolutely amazing warm and comfortable!
Expensive but worth every penny.

I wear cord trousers to keep warm in winter

annodomini Wed 02-Oct-19 11:32:09

Thermal leggings and vest - bought about 3 years ago from M&S and still going strong. I also wear cord trousers in winter.

polnan Wed 02-Oct-19 11:34:32

ooh, such good advice, I put the heating on.. thanks everyone

Nannan2 Wed 02-Oct-19 11:48:05

B&M selling thermal fleece lined leggings right now.(not bought any yet)

jaylucy Wed 02-Oct-19 12:02:21

Primark do temp control 40 and higher denier tights that work well even under trousers.
Good thing is that thy are pretty comfie to wear and don't make you feel sweaty in places you don't want to be!
There are also a lot of shops that sell thermal leggings that are ok to wear under trousers.
Personally, I go for jogging bottoms (not all have elasticated ankles) and can recommend Bon Marche' s. They look quite smart whenever they are worn. Oh, and I noticed that Peacocks have some nice trousers that are soft touch that will be warm.

Damart is a good place to start They frequently have offers on many of their lines in trousers and my favourite is the 'leisure'. Fleecy, washable and in various colours with an elasticated waist plus a cord to tighten them up should you have been on a diet.grin
