I’ve always liked culottes and have admired people who manage to look effortlessly chic wearing them. I happened to stumble upon these culottes while doing a google search and I couldn’t stop thinking about them. And you know what you have to do when you can’t stop thinking about something, you just have to buy them! Culottes can be worn by anyone as long as you know how to style them. I personally prefer to see culottes worn with flats or sneakers especially if you have skinny legs, otherwise they look like two sticks at the bottom of very wide pants.
I purchased these culottes from Boohoousa.com (my first time buying from them) and like Asos, I received the package within 3-5 days. I purchased them in a size 4 and they fit perfectly. I was nervous about the sizing but I decided to go with my normal size and I’m so happy I did because they fit true to size and were only $30! The tricky part was figuring out how to style these bold red pants. The first thing I had to think about was what top would work best. Now, since the pants are the focal point of the outfit and they’re super wide on the bottom, your best bet is to go with a fitted top either tucked in or cropped. I had this crop top that I purchased from Forever 21 earlier in the year and it was just sitting around waiting for the right bottom and sure enough, they went perfectly with the culottes, similar style here. I don’t have the flattest stomach so the high waist of the culottes provided the right amount of coverage so that only a small part of my belly button showed. (I do also think about the fact that I’m a mom and I do need to look respectable.) 🙂
I accessorized with this gold choker necklace that I received from Trellis Lane and a gold necklace, which was a gift from my mom. My Aldo sandals were the finishing touch to this look, linked similar style below.
Do you wear culottes? If so, how do you like to style them? Thank you so much for stopping by!
