Satin Feel

When culottes began to make a hit, I immediately started thinking up ways of how to style them. They can be an unusual addition to your closet, but so worth it. I think they add such an elevated and sophisticated feel and can be worn so many various ways. I went with these camel satin culottes from Missguided (similar here and here) (they have such a great variation so definitely make sure to check them out!). A few posts ago, I went for a more laid-back culottes look (here), so for this one I wanted to get a little dressed up! I threw on my two-strap solid black heels and a fitted off-the-shoulder top (similar here and here) with quarter sleeves for a polished finish. Since the culottes are a wider fit, pairing something fitted on top will give it a great balance and show a bit more figure. A rule that never fails (but doesn't always have to apply) is: if you're going chunky up top, go fitted on the bottom, and vice versa - this is a perfect example. So, never fear - if you haven't jumped on the culotte bandwagon, what are you waiting for?!
