It's time for a nip and tuck, no needles necessary. Admittedly, we've heard some complaints about pleats in the past, specifically in regard to their unflattering placement. However, we're here to show some love for a little pleating done well, like accordion folds on a dramatic maxi-dress and pinched-at-the-waist slacks, that are far from any '80s "mom-pant" nightmares. Check out our favorite apparel picks that have us saying, "Pass the pleats, please!"
