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.
