You are like me, a curvy woman who likes to walk a lot and is too old for shorts. You know the secret of finding light, loose, possibly cropped pants that let you walk comfortably for hours and don't chafe or give you sweaty crotch; and which look cool and casual, not completely frumptastic. You are willing to share the secret of finding these pants.

I swear to God I will send you a nice gift or at least a heartfelt card if you help me find what I need.
I have found the occasional candidate pants at H&M or Old Navy but I'm at the heavy end of my weight spectrum right now and I don't think H&M has anything for me, and everything at Old Navy is tight this season. I need cropped, lightweight pants that I can wear on a trip that will involve lots of walking in the sun. Needs to look decent-ish -- casual is fine, but not an obvious elastic waist, you know what I'm saying? Needs to be black or pretty colors, not khaki. And NOT TIGHT and NOT TAPERED. My shape can't handle it. Denim is too hot. Nothing shorter than mid-calf. It seems to me they used to make lightweight cargo pants that worked ok for this sort of thing, and I had some, but I can't find them now.
I checked LLBean but they seemed to be out of every color but khaki, plus the shapes looked frumpy-tapered…
I don't have the time to go to stores so it needs to be stuff I can order online and return what doesn't work. I don't mind paying restocking fees. Size 14, I think.
Looking forward to your non-sweaty shopping wisdom. Thanks!!
