i, erica of the short legs, have avoided pleated trousers, skinny or wide-leg, cropped or floor-skimming, for pretty much my entire life. perhaps i was scarred from my parochial school days when pleated navy shorts were able to make even a skinny 14 year old look like humpty-dumpty's cousin. but as i keep seeing pleated pants this spring, it makes me wonder.
here are some options that look good on paper.
any recommendations for a 5'4" girl?
silence and noise cropped trousers, $58, urban outfitters (via erica)
mayle rex pants, on sale for $279 at bird.
japanese style pants by le bouton.
pleated pants by duskin (stephanie of duskin swears they're great on short-legged girls, i'm intrigued)
pepita trousers by acne, $325 at la garconne.
