Thanks for the ideas. I am just a bit too tall for Gap petites/shorts, unfortunately. I never shop at Express because there isn't one near me, but it sounds as if it's worth seeking out.

I recently bought some higher-waist jeans from American Eagle, of all places. Too bad they offer them only in a skinny leg. I don't mind that style some of the time, but for an everyday, go-to style, I prefer a straight (not skin-tight) calf.
