You may have noticed a bit of a pink theme going on around here recently. Since picking up my absolute favourite blazer (see here), I’ve kind of fallen in love with pastel pink. Whilst browsing the ASOS sale I came across this lovely pastel pink, cold shoulder, culotte jumpsuit. It’s actually from Warehouse and luckily my size was still available. I already have two other culotte jumpsuits however they are both more of a workwear style. I do love the shape and style and thought I’d give the pastel pink a go.
The type of material flows beautiful over the skin with the ruffle detail on the sleeves adding shape and elegance. The cold shoulder style is perfect for summer and allows you to show some skin but still feel modest at the same time. This will be perfect for occasions such as a day at the races, a family BBQ or a friend’s birthday celebration. It’s easy to wear from day to night and is really comfortable. Being able to secure the waist tie as tightly as you like allows you to show your shape and synch in the waist. This detail is what makes this jumpsuit work if you’re petite. Without it, you’d be overwhelmed by the material and appear shapeless. The length of the culottes also work well being on the short side as you can show some skin between the trousers and your shoes which helps to elongate the legs. I would struggle to wear this with flats as I’d just feel swamped but I’m always in heels anyway so this isn’t a problem for me.
The only downside is the material creases very easily as you can see from where I’ve been driving. It’s not such a big deal but it is something to consider if you are thinking of purchasing and wearing to an event.
On this occasion, I’ve paired with nude Steve Madden heels and a 3d floral bag. I would have actually preferred a nude pair of courts instead of the lattice detail of the ones I’m wearing as I think it would have complimented the outfit better but the only ones I own have a darker toe area and just wouldn’t have worked with the pastel pink.
I absolutely love the colour, the shape and the style of this jumpsuit and I know it’ll be perfect for a variety of occasions over the summer and my winter sun holiday.
