I may have a little problem….I am looking for the perfect pleated pant. I am working to add more dress pants in my life and a little less jeans. I still love my jeans but I know a little wardrobe growing up would be better for my need to look less student and a little more like faculty. But, can pleated pants really work? I love the look, but it wasn’t until I tried one on today that I was smitten. Not only pleated, but plaid…gasp! Although not very forgiving, this combo can look sharp if the cut is right. BCBG MAXAZRIA created my magic pair. Another ongoing fixation I have is the bowtie blouse. I already have a few in my closet, but these fall finds may need to travel into my closet.
