Culotte Crush

4.14.2015

Adidas x FAFI crop leather jacket (last seen here), Zara lace tee, Nasty Gal culottes, Bucket bag c/o Lauren Ralph Lauren, Free People Boater hat (similar here), Souvenir ring from Thailand, Dorothy Perkins mules. Shot by Isaac Lacey.


I'm always a fan of playing with proportions and volume, so it should come as no surprise that I'm an avid supporter of culottes. Not only are they super versatile, but I also believe they have the easy ability of elevating your wardrobe and making it look way more fresh. Take the outfit I'm wearing above for example. Now, imagine I was wearing a pair of black pants or just a black maxi skirt with the same look... not so interesting, right? A little culotte action and all of a sudden it lends everything a modern edge. Not so sure about the trend for yourself? Head to your closest store to try on a pair to see what you think. I promise you won't be dissappointed...

In the meantime, I'm off to catch a flight to Paris for a long weekend away, so I'll see you when I land! To follow along on my Parisian adventures come find me on Instagram here.

  2. I love how culottes look like a skirt sometimes, it definitely gives you that added security in a wind situation! I need to hunt down a pair for myself
