21 Jul Casual in Culottes
With its origins in allowing women the freedom to move, a casual in culottes look is a no brainer approach to the styling of these must have trousers. One of the best things about this specific pair of culottes from Witchery is that they teeter between casual and formal quite nicely because of the sportswear inspired drawstring. Made from 100 % polyester this tie waist culotte has pressed-pleated details that add a tailored quality to a somewhat flowy billowy version of a culotte; thus making this a really versatile clothing investment.
As a former tomboy, this laid back styling approach to the culotte is an every day off duty look for me. Worn with a simple white tee tucked in, a black blazer and a pair of white Nike Air Force 1 Lows, this casual look can easily be transformed into a look that is more boardroom friendly by simply slipping on a pair of slightly masculine or graphic flats like my black and white Stuart Weitzman pumps or my Country Road Loafers both featured in this post – A Flat Story. Keeping it masculine or graphic with a statement pair of flats, keeps the look streamlined, cool and simple.
