If you're on the hunt for a pair of trousers that will slot into both your working and weekend wardrobes while lengthening your legs at the same time, let us recommend wide-leg trousers. While the wide-leg style is certainly nothing new, this XXL silhouette has been particularly popular this year, and has been worn by the likes of Maria Bernad and Camille Charrière.
Now more than ever, wide strides have become increasingly flattering. Thanks to a higher waistband, your legs look twice as long and the volume is more evenly balanced out. For a modern office look, follow Tamu's lead in her tailored trousers and opt for a smart pair in a neutral, but interesting, hue.

Style Notes: For work, try swapping your sensible grey suit for a bold blazer and matching wide-leg trousers. To dress down your tailored two-piece, just add a striped top, a neck scarf and sunnies.
Style Notes: Checked trews are an easy way to look smart at any time. Opt for a wider leg and it gives them a whole new look that you'll love for even longer. Team with basics juts like Tine.
Style Notes: If you’re petite or concerned about feeling drowned in your new super-sized trousers, why not consider something cropped? Look for shapes that skim the waist and hips for a flattering silhouette.
