Have you caught the culotte craze yet? If not, it’s coming..
Culottes are most certainly the ‘it’ pants of the season. They are a solid wardrobe staple with lot of dress-up styles available. But have you included these to your trouser collection yet? No? Well, you’re not alone. Many of us would LOVE to rock a culotte but have shied away because we just can’t tell if they will look good or not. We are so used to wearing jeans, trousers and skirts, hence trying this new trend is a bit frightening! I will admit, I was a bit skeptical before I bought my first pair of Culottes, perhaps that is because, there is a thin line in making it look cool or ugly.
So, despite my initial hesitation, I now declare myself a “CULOTTE LOVER” ! Once you are over the first-wear hesitation, you’ll be wondering how you ever lived without these.
Another thing I’m going crazy over is different shades of grey. Grey is one of the simplest way to make a major style statement because it’s fabulously foolproof. Your look is bound to look both clean and modern.
So, yes, I am totally crushing over culottes (it’s nice having another flowy pant option) & shades of Grey
In today’s look I have paired my black culottes with a metallic grey off shoulder blouse and to keep it from looking tomboy-ish, I opted for a pair of silver pumps and a silver choker.
Fashion tip on Culottes
Culottes look best with a high waist, well-defined and side pockets, because the cut will elongate the silhouette, paired with tiny tops, fitted shirts, tucked in blouses, t-shirts & sweaters help create a balanced silhouette.
Heels (sandals, pumps) will always make culottes look smarter, office appropriate and posh.
By including these in our wardrobe we get to step out of our comfort zones, play more with shape and finally find a great item to pair with a trendy top or a blouse to make it look classy, professional or casual, depending on how we style them.
Thank you so much for stopping by the blog today! I hope your weekend was an absolute delight!
