The culottes trend started to grow in popularity during spring 2015. The must have pants could be found in the SS15 runway presention of plenty of designers, starting from Céline to Tibi.
Culottes are for sure one of the trickiest trends out there, but as long as you style them right, they will give a super cool vibe to the entire outfit. They come as a great alternative to midi skirts, trousers, jumpsuits and A line skirts. Could even be called be the modern version of the classic A line skirt, and who doesn’t like something with a modern twist? So if you’re in love with midi skirts then you will totally be obssesed about culottes as well. What I adore about culottes is the fact that they can be styled in a lot of ways. For a relaxed look, you only need to tuck in your favorite tshirt or blouse and add a pair of sneakers, flat shoes or sandals. You will look sleek. As for the office appropiate version, replace the flats with a pair of stilettos, strappy sandals or mules. All eyes will be on you, since the heels will elongate your look and your outfit will be 10 times chicer.
Down below I have created a couple of collages in collaboration with SammyDress. Hope they will convince you to try the trend! Most of the clothing items are made of cotton, or cotton blends. They will be the perfect addition for your summer closet. The tops are exactly what you need to spice your outfit a little bit. Stripes, ruffles, embroidery, perfect eye catching tops at a really good price! As for the culottes, start with black ones, upgrade to white, then slowly introduce patterned ones and even more, colorful ones as the yellow pleated pair! To polish your outfit, I have also created a selection of pretty shoes that I would totally wear. Most of them are made of faux suede, which is great, because it’s a very durable material. Check out their website for even more on trend pieces at a good price. Enjoy and let me know your opinion! ♥
