Copy Paste: a cosy look for lounging at home and going out

Pleated trousers are a hybrid between comfortable sweatpants and elegant slacks, making them perfect for creating a stylish feel-good outfit.

One of my favourite items of clothing for just chillin’? Pleated pants. Characterised by a wide fit and elastic waistband, their loose fit leaves enough room to wear tights underneath for added warmth. The pleats not only offer maximum freedom of movement as they expand, but also give the pants a sophisticated look.

With pleated pants, you don’t have to worry about changing, be it for a trip to the grocery store, post office, or even a day at the office. Pleated pants are essentially the elegant alternative to joggers. Designer and influencer Orlaith Melia shows how you can combine the piece in a minimalist look, suitable for staying in or going out.

Orlaith wears a loose, beige, cable-knit sweater with black pleated trousers. This play with textures creates an interesting depth, while the sweater radiates cosiness and warmth. Her brown Ugg slippers pick up this vibe, creating a harmonious colour palette together with the black and beige. The matching handbag pulls the outfit together beautifully. Because the look is so neutral and timeless, the combo doesn’t look overly deliberate, but naturally harmonious.

Her two stacked, chunky silver rings and thick hoop earrings make for eye-catching but minimalist accents. They underline the elegance of the pleated pattern and skilfully round off the mix of stylish and cosy.

Has endless love for shoulder pads, Stratocasters and sashimi, but a limited tolerance for bad impressions of her Eastern Swiss dialect.
