Pleated Trousers For Women
The last time we saw pleated trousers in mainstream fashion, apart from our dads and granddads wearing them, was in the 1990s. Once ostracized from the men’s fashion community, pleated pants recently made a comeback. Not only for the men but also for women. Now that’s exactly what we call being back with a bang.
This time around, the baggy, ill-fitting trousers are reinvented and restyled to look utterly chic and modern. If you haven’t tried them on yet, you need to do that ASAP. They are adaptable for most dress codes and look polished and chic always. Check out Limeroad’s super chic collection of pleated trousers for women and make a statement with these roomier power pants every time you slip into them!
Styles And Styling
Styling pleated trousers can be a little tricky if you haven’t tried them before. Drape and fabric are the two key elements to pull it off. Your pleated pants have to be tailored very carefully. Too big and you’ll look like a clown. The ideal and the most flattering fit is called the “carrot fit”- which has more volume but tapers from the knee to the ankle. For all the newbies, pleated trousers can be worn along with fitted t-shirts, oxfords or brogues for a classic chic look. You can’t really go wrong with that. Besides the plain solids, pleated pants are available in many different styles, colors, textures and patterns on Limeroad, some of which include:
- Polka dots
Take your pleated pants to office by wearing a patterned button down with navy blue linen pleated trouser by ELINI along with pointed nude pumps for an utterly sophisticated look. If you lean towards neutral hues for formal wear, we recommend pairing these beige solid pleated trousers by Indibelle along with a dark colored button down and neutral; ankle strapped heels for a charming look.
To add some panache to your style, try on these brown solid crepe pleated trousers by Uptownie Lite which has some uber chic detailing on the hem. Pair these with a crisp button down for a stylish day at work and a wrap top for the night and look equally stunning at all times of the day.
Every girl needs to have pants in basic whites and blacks in her closet. These colors are extremely versatile and can be paired with almost everything with ease. We recommend white cotton pleated trousers by Lujoso and black viscose pleated trousers by Porsorte as absolute must-haves! Pair them with silk button-downs and heels for a formal setting and with t-shirts and flats for a much casual look.
Ladies, last but not the least- do NOT be afraid when it comes to playing with prints and colors. Team up the polka dotted blue pleated trousers by Globus with your classic white t-shirt and wedges for a stylish and fun look for the day.
