Good Morning & Happy Friday!
Culottes are one of those trousers trends that come in and out of style every few years. I personally think they work well for my petite shape and I find them very flattering. They flow nicely and create shape in the right places. They also usually come up quite crop which again works well for my short legs. I’ve got a few culotte style jumpsuits which I absolutely love (see here and here) but I wanted some trouser styles to try as jumpsuits are sometimes annoying to wear and get in and out of and I wanted an alternative to wear instead of jeans all the time.
I noticed this pair on the Forever 21 website and ordered a size small. Unfortunately they were too big so I reordered an extra small and they fit perfectly. I’m selling the size small on eBay as the Forever 21 returns process is annoying and they charge you £2.50 postage which I can’t be doing with having already paid £3.99 postage twice to receive the items. Anyway if you want to purchase you can find them here unless they’ve sold since I’ve written this post.
The trousers are really smart and have a pleated effect which compliments the leopard print design. It also helps them flow nicely and they flatter my curves. The length is perfect and they go really well with boots for wearing this time of year. They’ll also be really nice with a chic pair of high heels when the temperatures rise.
I’ve paired with a simple black top with white piping to match the tones of the trousers. The high neck is great for this time of year and I could easily throw a jumper or blazer on top depending on the occasion.
My little Kurt Geiger bag is a good match and works well with the look overall.
