Today’s Outfit: Pleasing Pleats

3 Oct

We’re talking about pleated pants here. Don’t be scared. It’s a deal breaker for most, myself included. We get thrown back into the worst of the 80’s and even then, pleats were a bad idea most of the time.  But, these pants work because they’re cropped, tapered, and have a wide, snug band sitting high up on my waist. Most importantly, I’m wearing them with heels which ensures a longer leg (and that’s always a lady’s goal).  Finally, I’ve tucked in my top to remind everyone that yes, above those pleats is a waist and I want you to see it.
