I came across this inspiration picture on People StyleWatch yesterday. The reader comments were almost all anti-pleated shorts, but personally, I'm a fan! I think pleats add a little sophistication, and while finding a good fit is important, the right pair can definitely look cute. I love Olivia's outfit (maybe with a different belt?) and J.Lo's fit is a little off but I like the overall idea on her. What's your take on pleated shorts - yay or nay?
