Pleated Jeans [September 2020]

Workwear has had a huge influence over the past few seasons. Of all the workwear characteristics, pleating is a designer favorite. As denim and workwear go hand in hand, naturally we are seeing a pleated revival.

For pleated design, many have kept true to the original workwear inspiration: the working woman.

And as a result, the jeans have clean lines, wider hems and some being cropped for ease of movement. These styles reflect the time when women joined the workforce, making a style that works just as well for the women of today…just as they did way back when.

How To Wear Pleated Jeans

Pleated’s clean lines and overall smart feel dress up anything you wear. You can easily pair them with a graphic tee and a motorcycle jacket for a sample everyday look or dress them up with a crisp white button up shirt or sweater and sandals for something that has a french ease to it.
