Want to know what we are loving most about pleated pants?  That would be all the fun ways to style them!  

A fun seasonal transition look is a pair of cargo pants matched with an oversized shirt.  To give your cargo pants an updated look, front tuck your shirt, and wear dad sandals or mules.  This fall, I’m wearing my khaki cargos with an oversized white shirt and brown Sam Edelman mules.  

Style Tip:  When wearing pants that gather at the waist, wear an oversized shirt,  sweatshirt, or sweater tucked in the front and untucked in the back….comfy and flattering!

Are you back at the office?  If so, pleated trousers paired with a blazer or trench and pumps are ideal for any office setting or committee meeting.  To take your boyfriend jeans from slouch to chic, don a blazer for a modern menswear vibe.  From one of Zara’s plaid blazers to one of their faux leather blazers…you’ll definitely add bonus points to your office style.

For an easy/breezy look, pair a sweater with your favorite utility pants.  No doubt, you will enjoy the weekend in a cute look from Anthropologie…khaki utility pants, an orange sweater, and color-blocked On sneakers.  If you are looking for an adventure-ready ensemble, pair your comfy sweat pants with one of Annie Bing’s printed pullovers or tees.  

Did you know pleated leather pants are typically more flattering than skinny leather pants?  From New York to Milan’s fashion week….a trench coat worn with pleated leather pants was the ultimate in street style.  Another way to dress-up a pair of pleated pants is with a beautiful blouse or sweater…absolutely gorgeous!  

So who knew there were so many ways to style pleated pants and so many options for everyone?
