Now that we can agree that pleats are cool, it’s time to try them out. I noted in my previous article that it is difficult to obtain pleated pants with the necessary details (high rise, slim-straight).

However, there are a few things that I’ve learned since my freshman year that would’ve saved me so much time in being who I am.
