Belted Shorts or Trousers with Pleats - Le 3002
These shorts/trousers are minimal but not without character thanks to the front pleats and belted effect. Their asserted femininity is appropriate for day and evening wear depending on the fabric chosen.
The advantage of this model is that you can combine a fluid fabric with a dry-handle one. For wild nights out, opt for printed silks, satin and viscose, whereas for a more daytime version denim or cotton etc… would be perfect.
This model is made even more adaptable by its front belt, allowing you to tighten the waist as much or as little as you want. This highly contemporary piece has so much going for it that you won’t be able to resist much longer!
