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. Princess Diana wore these in the ’80s with a white shirt and a red jumper looped around her shoulders in a Kensington knot, and now the Instagram set is also trying to make this unlikely denim trend adult-friendly too. Yes they can be an unflattering, awkward length, but the Instagram 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 meaning your eyes go towards the waist rather than the knees. Keep scrolling to see how to wear pedal pushers the 2018 way.

Style Notes: Leandra Medine tackled two tricky denim looks at once, testing triple denim AND pedal pushers. Leandra wore her Chloe patchwork pedal pushers with a co-ordinating denim shirt and denim Chanel handbag. 
Style Notes: Pernille Teisbaek wore her denim pedal pushers with a simple white T-shirt and black blazer and tan handbag, labelling this her ‘office look.’
