Making a statement doesn’t always mean being uncomfortable. The disproportionate size and cut of the soft pink, pleated pant is offset by the slim-fitting (but still slightly loose) chambray shirt, meaning I don’t have to sacrifice comfort when it comes to style. See the outfit below!

My boyfriend calls this pink pleated pant the “crazy pants”, but I’ve always said it’s more comfortable than sweatpants. I initially picked it up last year for the first installment of my Gossip Girl Inspired outfit series in which I was recreating one of Serena’s iconic shopping outfits. The wide-legs of the pant create a disproportionate effect on my rather short body. But here’s a pro tip: If you’re wearing a loose-fitting item on the lower half of your body, offset the item by wearing something more slim-fitting on the upper half, and vice versa. The same goes for wearing something tight on the bottom. Seems simple, right?
It can be very easy to create a headache of an outfit instead of a masterpiece if you try to overload the outfit with too many statements. Since the clothing items, themselves, are making the statement in this outfit, I kept the colors muted in the neutral and pastel region. The accessories are minimal (one collar necklace and one layered bracelet) but add the right amount of bling to finish off the outfit.
