They look quite cute right?
So… do you like culottes? Big, baggy, mumsy shorts? I’ve been a bit undecided.
It’s a tricky trend. Everyone seems to be scared or reluctant to wear one.
Did you know culottes were originally Frenchmen’s knickers? They were baggy knee trousers tucked into knee-high socks hehe! Well since then, they have been around the fashion circuit a few times, and now they’re the hottest silhouette trend for this new season.
I haven’t been too keen that culottes are a midi length (ending at my calves) which usually makes me look short, truncated and like I accidentally wore my son’s pants.
I also didn’t like the voluminous silhouette, because that style usually works against my short, petite body shape (read: makes me look fat).
Plus I had a fear that culottes would make me look like clown or a hippy.
I like that they look tailored, smart and polished. I liked that they looked like mid length skirt. And I like that I can wear a bit more skin up the top to balance it off.
These are just fab!
I just need a tuxedo jacket and I’ll be all good.
