#OOTD: Styling The Culottes

As I surfed the internet last night, I stumbled on this outfit post by SimplyCyn and bam! it dawned on me that I might not be styling my culottes right. Why haven’t I thought about this? Okay, I have but why haven’t I implemented it. I mean, I’ve been daring at times and I’ve combined some outfits which some people call absurd but who cares? It’s all about one’s personal style and once you’ve discovered it, nothing can stop us cos we all the way up!

Styling the Culottes

The culottes (although I keep spelling it as cullotes) is something people don’t usually wear except of course the Hijabis. Culottes are an item of clothing worn on the lower half of the body. It describes a split or bifurcated skirt or any garment that hangs like a skirt but is actually pants. This pair of culottes was actually a gift/prize from my sister (a prize for running errands). It was extra large but I took in some parts from the back making it look like darts (perks of being a tailor). I have styled this culottes here but I decided to tweak this look by styling it this way.

I wore a graphic tee with “night” embroidered on the centre front and a moon sign on one of the sleeves.

Unlike my muse, I styled the wide leg pants with sneakers. This look can be worn to a movie date and a coffee date (not the first date please).

Looking to achieve a vintage and minimal look, try this outfit combination. However, if you know you can’t withstand the stares you would get after trying this, please try to style appropriately.

What do you think about my outfit? Can you rock it like this? If not, what better way do you suggest? Kindly let me know what you think. Thanks for stopping by Loves πŸ–€

    I love the outfit but being a colorful person I think it’d look better if the culottes is styled with a strip/poka dotted shirt/blouse or a more colourful top.

      Yes. I know right. I actually opted for a monochromatic look but I’d definitely try your suggestions. πŸ˜€πŸ˜€πŸ˜Š thank you girl.
