Catwalktrend FW2010: perfectly pleated pants
Next to the super-feminine fifties skirts and dresses, this fall pleated pants are great statement pieces as well. Though they might appear manly at first sight, designers like Carolina Herrera and Chloe showed how they can be very elegant and sexy too.
There are two types of pleated pants. The ones that reach the waist and the ones that are worn low on the hips. Both look splendid when finished of by a small belt. And of course anything you’re wearing with those pants need to be tucked in, not worn over it.
Some designers combined the pants with masculine shirts (Chloe, Michael Kors, Jason Wu), others managed to make the outfit look feminine by adding color, prints, bows or ruffles (Bottega Veneta, DKNY, Emporio Armani)
And the best way to wear a pair of pleated pants? Put your hands in your pockets and work ’em!
