peg trousers - have I missed the fashion boat?

I'm 5 foot 8 inches, roughly a size 10 and I am SICK of skinny bloody jeans. I'm breastfeeding so I cant wear any of my lovely dresses, and its too cold to wear skirts (not really a skirt person anyway).

So, what about peg trousers? Are they going out of fashion now? I'm usually right at the back end of fashion trends so I suspect they are! If they're still deemed ok, can they ever look good on someone who's not 22 and who's not wearing high heels?

Any successful peggers out there? Advice please.

Or suggestions for alternative trouser options. Please don't say boyfriend jeans - I'm scruffy enough already!

No one out there wear pegs? That's telling me something already....

What do you mean by peg trousers? I have many cotton twill trousers which I roll to ankle length....look good with brogues, ballet pumps and sandals and good for smart casual. Mix of Gap and Oasis. Is that what you mean? Still too cokd for me to wear them at the mo. Brrrr

I mean tapered trousers that are relatively loose around the thighs/bottom. I shall now attempt A Link. Stand back everyone:

asos trousers

I don't love these but this is the shape I'm thinking of.

I wore some today - gok ones. However I am nowhere near at the forefront if fashion....

Oh and mine are more tailored than those in the link and I wore them to work with a cropped jacket
