“Your clothes should be tight enough to show you’re a woman but loose enough to show you’re a lady.”
― Marylin Monroe
Culottes have always been a secret love of mine. I love that they allow you to move freely without restriction and I think it’s kind of cool that they are not what they appear to be. Revealing my skirt actually has legs with a few Jackie Chan type kicks thrills me more than it should!
My favourite way to wear culottes right now is with a crop top and heels as I feel it is the perfect blend of sexy and sophisticated. For this outfit, I added a fedora hat and a cute heart shaped clutch bag by Moschino for a grown and sexy feel.
I know that culottes are kind of the in thing right now – but I’ve never been one of those trendy types that can flit deftly from one fashion fad to the next with ease. I’ve actually had this ASOS pair well over a year now and get complimented every time I wear them. In fact, I am tempted to find a seamstress to make me a pair exactly like this in multiple colours (I do this really annoying thing whereby if I find something I love I will buy it in every single colour).
