New Delhi

Pleated pants— once relegated to the menswear retirement community, are back in vogue. And like every other cynical fashion trend, that witness their resurgence after a decade or so, there’s a new element added that make them au courant. So, invest in a pair of pleated trousers this season, and give a modern spin to it. You wouldn’t want onlookers to think that you have been time-travelling.

Team it with puffed sleeves

White and grey together exude sophistication. Our model Prince Khurana’s look is inspired by the old British style. Tucking in his wide, puffed shirt with pleated trousers featuring drawstrings, he cuts a dapper figure. The slicked back hair is on-point.

Pull off tone-on-tone

Opt for a singular colour palette and be the swaggerer as you strut on the street. Our model is wearing a grey shirt with embellishments over a white T-shirt, that’s unbuttoned and neatly tucked in the grey pants.

Take hint, from print

Your pleated pants are going to look uber cool with a printed shirt. And our model Prince Khurana is channeling the 70s dandyism here with utter ease. For that easy breezy feel, you can unbutton your shirt. Finish off the look with a pair of sneakers.

Layer it up

Wear your pleated trousers with a v-neck T-shirt and layer it up with a jacket. Make sure your trousers are ankle length or else you can roll up your pants for that effortlessly casual look.

Go edgy, flaunt some skin

Team up your pleated pants with a cool mesh jacket like our model Aditya Chauhan. Finish off the look with a pair of sneakers and you’ll draw attention for sure.
