OUTFIT INSPIRATION - BOXY TOPS AND CULOTTES
I think culottes are polished take on the boring old tailored looking trousers. They work just as much with a pair of heels for work and all you need to do is switch your heels for a pair of pumps or sneakers and your good to go for a more casual take on it.
I have put together an outfit that I would actually wear myself. I like the bold top with a contrasting coloured culotte, perfect for night out. I rarely wear heels so opted for a pair of wedges. I have been wearing big sun hats and have been really liking and thought it will be a perfect accessory for a night out creating a movie start look. To brighten up the outfit I chose a gold bracelet cuff that will add colour and brighten the whole look.
For a day look I prefer to be comfortable as possible, so chose a pair of denim culottes (what is more comfortable than denim) and comfy cotton top (a light colour to keep the heat away). A pair of chucks creating a sporty vibe and to complete the look a pair of bold round sunglasses, perfect for a day out with friends or shopping. A simple and clean outfit.
A FEW STYLING TIPS
1. Culottes are easy to style just remember to treat them like a sundress, match your culottes and the top and wear it with a pair of wedges and it will balance the different volumes.
2. For a casual weekend look the perfect option would be to switch your usual sweat pants for a pair of culottes and sneakers, you will be comfortable yet stylish.
3. If you go for a bold or printed pair of culottes opt for a simple and plain top. treat them like wearing a midi skirt.
4. Bored with your plain old work clothes? Culottes is a good way to trend up your look without drawing too much attention. Keep simple and clean like wearing a plain black culottes and a simple white shirt and a leather jacket instead of a blazer.
So there goes my outfit inspiration for this week, hope you like wearing boxy tops and culottes. I think I need to go find one for my upcoming holiday. Would be the perfect piece to add to my wardrobe so I can double for day and night time.
