Bright Stripes | How To Style Culottes

I’m loving Spring clothes at the moment, they’re so bright and vibrant. It lifts my mood instantly. I found this AMAZING pair of culottes in Zara, they aren’t my usual style – but I fell in love anyway. It’s good to step out of your comfort zone every once and a while. P1010215P1010211P1010205P1010199P1010194P1010180P1010181P1010188

Because culottes are wide fitting I personally love to wear it with something tight on the top. This black polo neck helps to tone down the brightness of the culottes but it also gives you a nice silhouette. Also by wearing the culottes with heeled boots it gives the impression of longer legs. I’ve never had so many complements on an outfit when I’ve been out and about before, by being more adventurous with my style it got peoples attention.

    I’ve been saying culottes everywhere and wanted to buy them, but I’ve been so paranoid that I wouldn’t be able to pull it off! But you look absolutely gorgeous in yours and maybe I might go out and try to put together an outfit like this! Great post! – Kavi xx

      Yeah they’re really popular at the moment, I didn’t think I’d suit them either! You should definitely just go for it!! I bet they’ll look amazing on you! And thank you xx

    I applaud your new found bravery which has you expressing adventures of style. Again, what I love is your contour waste line which will compliment mostly all styles this spring, summer, fall and winter. The way the culottes pattern extends your form is amazing. With the look of a skirt, it wraps around your lower body decisively while stopping near your stylish open heel and toe boots. fotos 1, 3, 6 and 8 reveal hints of your pretty feet&toes. Which for me, always exemplifies a woman who is beautiful from head to toes. I can’t wait to see more of you dressing up your pretty feet and toes with beautiful nail polish and accessories this spring, summer and fall. Yet another ensemble that compliment you.

    Stripes are my favourite style I have about 10 tops and mum has given me a ban haha but I don’t have any bottoms! These culottes are so brave but they look really really good on you!

    Those culottes are very cute. They are out of my comfort zone but this post makes me want to go buy some and try something different. I love the outfit.

    Love this but do you have any tips on culottes for short people! They just make me look ridiculous!

    • April 13, 2016 / 10:12 am

      Have you tried wearing them with sandals and a crop top? The extra skin might make you look taller!

  17. April 13, 2016 / 7:46 pm

    Too cute I haven’t worn culottes in years. They look great on you 👌🏽

    Love those!

    Great way to get out of your comfort zone. I’d rather have crazy clothes than boring clothes and this is a good item to mix and match, more so than you would normally think when seeing it for the first time

    I love this look! I recently bought some culottes myself, but didnt get a chance yet to wear them, due to the weather. Can’t wait till it’s a tad warmer to wear them! xo Jey.
