How to Wear Pleated Trousers

A few years ago I would have told you that pleated pants were the biggest fashion crime one could make.  Well, here I am wearing them and feeling oh so chic.  
Sweater and Belt: Thrifted, Trousers: Anthro, Shoes: Forever 21
If you like the look and want to try pleated trousers the most important way to wear them is is to accentuate your waist.  DO NOT hide your waist with a tunic or a boxy/loose shirt.  Definitely choose a pant that sits higher on your hips and further accentuate your waist with a belt.  Since the pleats add volume, a fitted top is an excellent choice to bring balance to your proportions and appropriateness to a work outfit.
