I’ve been in a 90’s mood lately – probably because I’ve been watching a lot of Meg Ryan Rom-Coms! So when I saw these pleated trousers from Everlane I jumped at the chance to try them out! The pleats and baggy fit are definitely giving off some retro vibes and I’m here for it.
Originally, I wasn’t sure if a pleated trouser would be too formal for wearing around the house all day but I was pleasantly surprised that the fabric was very relaxed and comfy. The fabric actually looks a lot more casual in person and I feel like I can 100% wear them all day. To make this look even more everyday-comfy I added my Everlane Trainers and a simple tank (because it’s gettin’ hot here!). I also just realized that I’m dressed exactly like the model on Everlane’s site! Apparently this is the standard way to wear these pants. And because I have nowhere to go, I thought it would be the perfect opportunity to wear my micro bag. I can’t fit much in it but that’s ok because I’m not going anywhere!
A few notes about the fit of these pants – I feel like they run big. I’m wearing a size 2 but I’m normally a size 6 in jeans. The size chart is accurate though so make sure you check it out. They are also pretty cropped on me. I’m 5′ 8″ and wish they hit around my ankles because I think that would look better. So if you are shorter these might work better for you! The rolled hem on the pant is just for show so I can’t unroll to make them longer.
