Someone should tell Mrs Cruise not to box herself in! She’s managed to turn her image around from middle age mama to style icon with the help of the wide leg jean. Katie parades around in her wide legs so often that she’s become synonymous with the style. (It’s pretty much the same thing Kate Moss did with skinny jeans.)

But if you find that you also stick to only one style of jeans such as the skinnies or wide legs, we dare you to shake it up a little. Why not try high waisted flares? These pair from Guy Baxter, $300 $175, available from Shop Language are perfect for the challenge.
