COOL IN CULOTTES
In the seventies the culottes, the fear of every man, were hot hot hot! Guess what? They’re back and next to the flared jeans the must-have fashion item this spring, which is completely dominated by the seventies’ feel!
Last autumn we were already prepared for the wide trousers, but now we can’t ignore them anymore and is it time to embrace them. And once in a while a little fashion challenge can’t hurt, right? 😉 For me it also was a challenge, I admit, but now I’m completely into the culottes! There are infinite ways to style them, they come in many varieties and they are therefore suitable for everyone. For the shorties among us, don’t be afraid the culottes will shorten your legs. With a pair of beautiful heels and the right length of culottes (just below the knee) they actually give you extra length!
For the first look ‘Chic in Culottes’ I combined them with a pair of black heels with a silver ring around the ankles. I chose a crop top, but you can also go for an uber comfi sweater to create an oversized look; or just a nice, white blouse for a more businesslike opportunity. If you go for a culottes with a cool print, wear a simple, plain top with it. Having a party soon? Go for a bold colour, make them your eye-catcher and finish them off with a pair of stylish heels, jewelry and a clutch. Preferring something playful or tough? Then choose a tight or loose crop top with a pair of sneakers like I’ve done for my second look ‘Casual in Culottes’. Which style do you like best?

Want to combine all trends of SS2015 in one outfit? Combine the culottes with a crop top, gladiator shoes and an item with fringes. Make sure to finish everything off with one item of suede. Suede in spring and summer? Yes, no matter how conflicting it may look, suede is the fabric of this season, preferably in camel!
The culottes may ask for a little courage, but ladies, go for them! They make you feel fantastic! Enjoy!
