By Maybelle Morgan, 16 March 2017

Wave buh-bye to your skinnies. Their cooler, comfier counterpart is throwing big shapes for SS17 and has had a seal of approval from street style’s greatest trend mother Rihanna. Don’t believe us? Check these five looks, proving wide-leg is the way to stroll…

Yep, it’s a certified trend when queen of cool Rihanna herself steps out in the XXWL (extra extra wide-leg) version. The skater jean is big news for SS17, so make like RiRi with a matching denim jacket, cropped high-neck top and boxfresh sneaks.

Not just for the weekend, the wide-leg thing is so right for your 9-5 work gig, but keep it smart in grey pinstripes and tailored turn-ups. Choose a cropped jumper and finish with old-school masculine accessories: think Dr Martens and a retro doctors bag.

Stripes just got a nautical-meets-PJs update with these fresh toe-skimming trousers. Stay weather-appropes with a high-neck velvet sweat, then add chunky platform boots and a leather studded cross-body bag for a grunge element.

Floral fits

Florals for spring? Actually groundbreaking when incorporated into SS17’s fave trouser silhouette and cropped to cool perfection. Carry on the statement by wearing with the co-ord top and layering over an orange knit and puffer.

Blue velvet

Yes, we don’t want to get out of bed either, but compromise by draping your legs in the dreamiest floor-sweeping velvet. Amp up the glam with bold strappy heels, a trophy cross-body and some mirrored sunglasses.
