Looking for something a little different? Check out these pleated wide-leg pants. In a recent post, I featured a bold floral print pant for summer. I love a loose-fitting style for summer, so I was intrigued when I saw these pleated pants from Free People and just had to try them! True boho style!
For some reason, anything boho is appealing in the summer months. Must be the casual, easy-breezy style. Are you drawn to these styles in the warmer weather?
The Pleated Wide Leg Pants Outfit
There are lots of details that make these boho pants unique and pretty. First is the gorgeous tapestry print. Second is the main color–yellow! Third, is the combination of yellow and pink for a rich, subtle look. They also have a high waist that slims the waistline. The flat pleats give additional definition at the waist and keep the fabric from being too voluminous. Some of the fuller-bodied pants are just too much on me.
Pull-on pants have really grown on me. No zippers or buttons to spoil the line! And so comfortable. This pair has an elastic waistband to keep them snug and in place.
The soft, gauzy material is super lightweight, the perfect weight for a warm day or evening.
To be honest, I did struggle with what to wear for the top. Pink? Yellow? White? Eggshell? In the end, I settled for a basic pale pink short-sleeve top that I already have in my closet.
As is often the case with pants, these run a bit long on me. But the naturally flowy look works whether they are higher on the ankle or down to the floor. They would be a cute cropped length on my taller friends!
The Shoes and Straw Bag
Once again, I am wearing these adorable pink croc sandals and my pink half-moon straw bag, last seen in the post Dress up a Simple White Lace Dress. When I came downstairs for our “photoshoot,” my husband said something like “same shoes and bag,” or “those shoes and bag again?” Hmm. Men. I can tell immediately what he thinks of my outfits.
In the first decade or two of our marriage, he loved to buy outfits for me. Generally fitted, preppy-type looks. That worked then, but I am branching out now and trying new things!
He said he might have liked these pants in a different color. WHAT?! The color is key in this print! Lol! They do. however, come in a dark fuchsia combo print if you prefer those shades.
Where to Wear Pleated Wide Leg Pants
The flowy style of these pants can be worn anywhere! As is usually the case, the top and accessories will make the look casual or dressier.
Here are just a few ideas:
- With a white tee and Birkenstocks for a beach or pool party
- As the host for a cocktail or dinner party – with an off-the-shoulder top
- With a sleeveless tank sweater in a cropped length for a dinner date
- Try an off-white boho top and wedge espadrilles for a lunch date
- Styled with a strapless top and lots of bling for whatever you like!
In short. these pleated wide-leg pants can be worn almost anywhere you like. They are definitely a different look and I suspect will get lots of compliments. Hopefully, not the doubtful kind like my husband gave me! Lol!
