If you are chained to your skinny jeans or have become inseparable from your ‘70s wide-legs then the time has come to make way for the new shape. Embrace the peg trouser and step into the new season, you’ll be lightyears ahead.

A cousin of the jodhpur and distant relative of the harem pant, this trouser features volume at the thigh and a slim ankle. The best thing about these trousers is that the right pair can flatter any figure.

The more voluminous at the waist the better for boyish figures with no curves; a looser ankle will help those with chunkier legs feel more comfortable and look less restricted; and finally smaller pleats will aid those with curves to ensure that they don’t  draw attention to any areas they would rather minimalise.

Famed fashionista Mary-Kate Olsen and the beautiful Olivia Palermo have been spotted in the style. Olivia opted for a chic pair in grey and proved that the style can be a great alternative to an evening dress. The peg trouser will continue to sky rocket as others catch on.

Jaeger’s pleated pair (£125.00, www.jaeger.co.uk) will look neat ad chic with silk shirts and will fast become a work staple, while River Island’s cropped grey peg trouser are perfect to team with your brogues (£29.99, www.riverisland.com).

The peg doesn’t need to be restricted to the office, indulge in a luxurious velvet pair fro maximum impact. Try Asos’ pair in sleek slate grey, team with a plain vest top and killer heels for an effortlessly glamourous evening look.
