Street Style Sunday – The Culottes

A little nod to the 70’s this week; culottes.

The last time I remember wearing culottes was over 20 years ago. I was none other than a girl guide! The fashion world is insistent that culottes are a good idea so on a recent trip to the last of the sales, I snaffled a bargain and thought why not. And so I did.

I opted for a plain colour and most definitely chose to style them with a heel. I also went for a plain top and layered it with a statement necklace. A trusty old friend, pearls, pearls and more pearls. I added a punch of colour with red nails and for the first time ever, red lips!

Some would say culottes are quite manly, I would actually say they are quite girly. If worn right. Heels are a must in the evening. I think I have found a new style. Im really looking forward to styling them when the weather removes itself from these sub zero temperatures. Right I am off to find a more daring pair by way of a big bold pattern.

Some would say I may be a little late in joining in with the culottes wearing crew but here goes…
