Wide leg trousers are well-and-truly back, but for those who have spent the last decade squeezing into skinny jeans, they can feel somewhat of a minefield.
Cropped? Printed? Denim? Am I too short for them? Will they make me look wide? Will they go with anything else I own?
We picked out three of the best and styled them to suit three different women with three very different looks…
Look 1: Pastel denim
Jeans don’t have to be skinny, you know? Wide leg variations are all over the high street right now, and we’re especially into them in pastel hues.

Look 2: Clashing prints
If you’ve been keeping your finger on the fashion pulse recently, you’ll be au fait with the industry’s penchant for a clash. Wide leg troos are no exception, and – providing there’s continuity somewhere (i.e. same black base colour) – we’re here for it.
If you’re heading for a fancier affair, why not opt for a cropped pair with a matching camisole? Preferably in satin. And yellow. Anyone fancy making us a wedding guest so we can wear this outfit?
