Brace Yourself: Grown-Ups Are Now Suddenly Wearing Pedal Pushers

Anyone in their 20s or 30s is likely to have owned a pair of pedal pushers, but most of us retired these just-above-the-knee trousers along with our Polly Pockets as soon as we hit double figures. Even Princess Diana wore them in the 1980s, with a white shirt and a red jumper looped around her shoulders in a Kensington knot. Needless to say, the Instagram set is trying to make like Princess Di with this unexpected denim trend. Yes, they can be an unflattering, awkward length, but the influencer set is diving right in. Pernille Teisbaek and Leandra Medine have both styled them in a similar way, pairing their pedal pushers with a black tailored blazer and a black belt (that way, your eyes go toward the waist rather than the knees).
