Last year harem and carrot pants were the hot trend for spring and summer. Well this season a more streamlined basic version of them are in. Pleat front pants are coming in vibrant hues as well as rich neutrals. For plus size women this style can be tricky. It’s all about finding the right cut and fit for your body. We will admit that pleat front pants are slightly scary because it can add volume to your mid section. No one wants to look like they’re wearing the pants version of mom jeans. On the other hand pleat front pants can be quite chic and sexy, especially when worn with the right shoes and top. Have you been eyeing this trend but are not quite sure how to make it work for you then check out SC’s tips to help you look fab in this trend.

  • To keep your gams looking long we suggest wearing heels or wedges with this pant.
  • If you’re bottom heavy aka pear shape make sure there is no pulling across your hip area. The pleats should neatly hang on your curves. You may have to size up and get the waist taken in to insure a perfect fit.
  • Do rock a blazer for a chic sophisticated look or if you want to (not that we think you should) camouflage your hips and rear.
  • Try this trend with an embellished tank or sheer button up for a sexy look.

    I love this trend but I seem to fail at it every time lol. I have a few different pairs but i never seem to wear them (I need more hips IMO). I just ordered the bright blue pair from asos so hopefully I can work it out.
