Culottes and Curves

 photo 06-DSC_0224_zpscd1fd1da.jpg

Culottes have become a popular fashion trend this summer and I decided to venture in and try them out. What I like most about Culottes is that they are in between a short and a skirt which makes them a hell of a lot more comfy during the summer time when chafing can be at it's worse especially if you can get hold of a jersey or cotton pair. The ones I am wearing below are New Look, I went for a size 22 but to be honest in hindsight a 24 would have been a much better fit and a little less clingy around the tummy area. I paired the shorts with a vest top and a leather jacket (jacket was a mistake - far too hot!) and my gorgeous bag from Camden Town, be sure to check these guys out they are a online store where indie designers and sell some really cool clothes jewelry and bags.
So am I Culottes covert? The answer is yes, if you are after comfort and style these are perfect and get a 10/10 from me.

  4. Looking gorgeous! I'm always scared to attempt culottes because whenever i wore them as a youngster (i had this matching suit in like 1995) they'd ride up in between my legs!! I've checked out the Camden town site too, love the stag satchel!! xxx
