Spring Culottes


I'm a big believer in only embracing trends that fit within your personal style & flatter your body shape.  I was actually an early adopter of culottes (see my post from last summer here), so I was happy to see them all over the runways this year - clearly, they are here to stay.  Think about styling them in the same way as you would a midi skirt (this also helps when determining the best length for your frame).  You want a tailored fit in the waist & hips with no sagging or puckering, which may mean having alterations made if they aren't perfect right off the rack.  You can either choose a fitted, structured top to balance out the voluminous shape on bottom or you can keep it relaxed with slouchy soft styles, as I did here.  While I typically prefer to wear heels with culottes to help elongate the legs, they take on a laid-back cool vibe when paired with chic slide sandals.










What I'm wearing:
H&M blazer (similar here or here), LOFT shirt (similar), H&M scarf (similar),
