Pleated Pants: A Single Piece To Flatter Your Body!

In general, the pleat-front trouser flatters the majority of body types. Pleat-front pants, which according to My Virtual Stylist has historically been associated with menswear, was created to conceal the stomach area and give its bearer a flattering, loose look. Worn a little above your hip bone, pleated pants are placed around the waist. This also implies that the rise of pleated pants is higher, making it more comfortable to flex in any figures.

Size matters

When choosing pleated pants, it is best to choose the larger, looser size if you are in between sizes to avoid a tight fit that could cause the pleats to separate. The pleats are supposed to be flat to give yourself a more flattering look. Worry not as in the case of pleated pants, a bigger size will not give you a lazy vibe - it actually ‘chic’-ens you up!

Cropped top to go

To balance out your outfit, look to style your pleated pants back with a more fitted top because they have a more relaxed, loose feel. With a classic tank, a fitted t-shirt, and most importantly, a crop top. Illustrated above, this is what you’d imagine of the pleated pants paired with our Dita Crochet.

Layering never lies

It is important to see and be able to identify the waist detail on a pair of pleated pants. Pick a good full or half tuck to reveal the front of the waist and the pleats. One of the most favourite go-to outfits for high waisted pleated pants is a loose layer (like oversized t-shirts, blazers, or even coats) worn over a more fitted top.
