To Culotte or Not?

To Culotte or Not?

TRENDING this season.....Culottes! 

I have to say I was not a fan when I first saw them. But I have come around to them and find them super comfortable and totally flattering!

We got in black and sage green culottes from Orb and we love them. I have put together a few different ways to style them as I was a little thrown at first as to how to wear them. As I played around with different looks, I quickly realized they are super versatile and adorable. I think the most important thing to realize when styling them is you need to either wear a crop top or a fitted or tucked in top. Wearing anything to loose on top may give you the appearance of looking wider than you want.

Look 1-Uber chic and casual! I paired this with one of our Z Supply sleek jersey tees and love this cool and casual look. This top is a little slinky and longer so I tucked it to give it a more finished look. Adding casual heels definitely made the outfit a little more polished, these are our Chinese Laundry Karlita heels (LOVE) but I would totally wear this with some cute sneakers too.

Look 2-Classy and Casual! I loved this cute, simple top with the rouched detailing on the arms. This is our Dex Clothing Pink Synched long sleeve Shirt. I feel like  it adds a little bit more interest and to the outfit. I would wear this to the office or out for lunch with the girls. Comfortable but totally put together. I think the cute nude heels class this look up!

 

Look 3-Again, chic and casual! I just wanted to show you how easy it is to put together a simple look with a tucked in basic slim fitting top.

Look 4-Dressed up! I absolutely love this blouse tucked in to these pants. I think you could wear this for a wedding or out on a date. This could really be any blouse, though this Dex one looks incredible with it. We are also quite smitten with these adorable new Chinese Laundry Savana heels.

 

So who can wear Culottes? Everyone (though they may need to be hemmed if you are short. I still think if hemmed right, with heels, they will look adorable if you are shorter.)

Should you embrace the culotte trend? YASSSSSSS...it took me a bit to come around but now I am in love! 

Have a great day ladies, and if you have any questions please feel free to send me an email ellesclosetboutique@gmail.com or reach out on Instagram or Facebook!

If there's one thing many people may not know about the fashion industry, it's that it is about prediction. If you don't remember, a few months ago, we mentioned the styles of the 1970s were making a return and we were right! We just underestimated how much you would be loving the tie-dye.
