Wear It Now; Wide Leg.

Andrew Gn, S/S 2011. Smarten the wide leg with a blouse and chic accessory, like this turban or a smart bag. This take on the wide leg will be stylish in and out of work. 

Kick it back with laid-back and unfussy in denim. Katie Holmes oozes effortlessness but the look is brought pu in the style stakes by the high waist and fitted upper half.

I came across Talia B on Lookbookand loved her almost-Spring look. Versatile this look's perfect for England's unsure weather. Keep on the leather to beat off the chill or take it off if the sun decides to come out. Floral wide legs are all over the place...I've spotted a few in River Island this season so go check them out if floral's your fave.

Sports Luxe with Tommy Hilfiger, S/S 2011.

Opt for something different. The wide leg will be seen everywhere so why not give it a twist with a dungaree like this one from Topshop? Perfect for the festivals too.

Bag two trends in one like Jill Sander has this season. Wide Leg AND colour blocking. The brighter and bolder the better. Do it if you dare.

For ultimate hippy chick, take a leaf out of Bree Henley's book, who has clearly pushed the hippy van out. Channel peace, love and righteousness with a toned-down '70's disco night in mind. Think super flares, headbands, feathers, platforms and chiffon.

And to skip one skip ahead of the rest of the pack, chuck on a dress over loosely fitted/wide legged trousers. This Eastern-inspired trend hurtled its way across LFW 2011's catwalks, including with Fendi and Jaeger. Look to Fendi for dress-over-trouser etiquete with its simplicity in the outfit, but with a smidgen of colour pop with use of accessories and lippy.

DO go denim. Timeless and can't go wrong
DON'T wear a loose top...balance out the wide leg with a tucked in or fitted upper half. Unless you're going for the dress-over-trouser trend.
DO wear high heels/platforms to give the blessing of an illusion, that is longer legs.
DO go large as large with your sunglasses.
