Among my friends, the pleated pant is a topic of controversy – some love them (including myself), and others are not so fond of the silhouette. Well my question today is, what about pleated shorts? For the past couple of years, shorts have been slowly making their way into the fashion scene, until SS11 Fashion Week, where it was impossible to deny that they are definitely a must-have for spring/summer 2011. I spotted these Alice + Olivia shorts last year and instantly loved them, but wasn’t sure if I could pull them off. After seeing the trend all over the runways, I knew I had to have them. Fortunately, we still had a pair left in inventory and it just so happened to be my size (it was fate!). I tried sporting the trend this weekend. Of course the pic turned out blurry, but I included a model pic so you can see them better. What are your thoughts? Is this fashion or a fashion faux pas?
