How to Style Culottes



I've found these culottes in the latest Topshop sale and they have been in my wardrobe for a little while now, mainly because I couldn't decide how to style them. They are my first pair of culottes since I wore them in the 80s as a child so I wasn't sure they were really me now, but when I tried them on they fitted so well and are so so comfortable. They are also the perfect piece for this gorgeous 'too cold for sandals but too hot for a coat' autumn weather we've been having recently.

I've seen them worn with trainers and think that looks great but I have unnaturally skinny ankles which are not in proportion to the rest of my legs! so the bulky trainers would only emphasize this. Having recently re-heeled my favorite faux skin leopard print boots (geeze that's a mouthful!) I decided to wear my culottes with ankle boots, in my mind I think of the culottes as a masculine midi skirt so styled it in the exactly same way I would style a midi skirt (see here) Wearing high waisted with a t-shirt, fine knit or shirt roughly tucked in will balance out the bottom half and look much more flattering. I felt quite smart in this outfit, change the t-shirt to a shirt and it would be the perfect 'meetings' outfit.
