Latest obsession: culottes

Friday, June 23, 2017
When culottes became the 'it' thing, I honestly thought they were the ugliest item of clothing in the world.

Fast forward a bit and now they're all I want to wear. I love them.

You think at first glance they'll be really unflattering because they're so shapeless, but they're actually the opposite (for me, anyway). I'm quite big around my belly, hips and thighs and I find culottes are surprisingly good at flattering that part of my body. The way they cut off at the shin means they're showing off the slimmest part of my legs instead of making me look squat.

Culottes are comfy, versatile, roomy, and can be dressed up or down. If you're unsure about the style, try some on next time you go shopping and see what they look like on you. Granted they won't suit everyone, but if you're a bit iffy with your middle area like me, I'd suggest styling them with a slim-fit t-shirt tucked in to balance out the bagginess of the culottes (plus most culottes sit on your waist so they conceal any bumps you're not keen on). 

Pop on a leather jacket and some trainers and you're set.

I've featured 10 pairs of culottes from all over the web - they vary in price, colour, material, and length. Enjoy!
