A huge thank you to Joseph Stephen for shooting these images for me! Thanks Hosef 😉 I owe you one 🙂
It’s been a while, hasn’t it? A lot has changed while I’ve been gone – I got married, took one month off work, travelled a lot and now I’m back to the daily hustle of life. Changes are plenty, but my love for fashion remains constant and is stronger than ever.
Today’s outfit post is centered around one of the top trends of 2015, the culottes. I’ve shied away from it mainly because I thought I was too petite to carry it off, but I wanted to find out for myself anyway. They are such a cool addition to your wardrobe and quite versatile such that you can wear it to work or out and about casually. Like I usually like doing, I wanted to create a work look as that’s what comes in most handy for me on a day to day basis.
For the look, I was wearing these very soft and comfortable blue culottes from Oxolloxo and I paired it with a sleeveless sheer white shirt from Oxolloxo as well. To add a little more edge to the look I added a sleeveless black blazer from New Look. This is such a comfortable, edgy yet formal look that you can easily wear to work or for a meeting about town.
I kept the accessories simple, just adding these gorgeous earrings from Forever 21 and a gold cuff I’ve been wearing everywhere recently for some visual interest. I went with my favorite formal bag from Van Heusen to finish the look off and threw in some nude heels to achieve that longer legs effect and achieve a taller frame. The reason I am talking about height often here is because culottes can make a shorter/petite person like me look even shorter due to the cut and length of these pants. Adding nude heels helps give height and add more dimension to the look!
Some other ways to style culottes would be to pair it with crop tops – the short length of the crop top along with the mid length cut of a pair of culottes helps provide a very flattering look, especially given that most culottes have a more high waist appearance!
