From scrunchies to oversized blazers to velvet dresses, there are so many trends from the '80s that have made a return in recent years, but there's one flattering and comfy style that's particularly sweeping Hollywood as of late: pleated pants.
In a recent segment of The Drew Barrymore Show, host Drew Barrymore appeared alongside Property Brothers stars Drew and Jonathan Scott while wearing brown pleated trousers with a matching oversized blazer. She paired the pantsuit with a silky blouse that featured an extra-long necktie.
Not only are pleated trousers so elegant for work, happy hours, or other nice events, but they're also a much comfier option than jeans thanks to their looser silhouette and breathability. Shop pleated trousers below from Amazon and Nordstrom for as little as $19.

Plus, Barrymore isn't the only celeb to break out the pleated pants. In the fall, Meghan Markle hit the Invictus Games red carpet with Prince Harry while wearing beige wide-leg trousers with pleats. Eva Longoria also wore tan wide-leg pants with a pleated front while in Los Angeles, and Hailey Bieber even took the trend to shorter heights with her short pleated skirt while on a coffee date with Justin Bieber recently.
Designed with functionality in mind, pleats expand while you move to prevent seam tension and pesky folds.
