IT HAPPENED. I GOT CULOTTES.

AND I LOVE THEM.

Make no mistake, these are not the $15 jersey gauchos I rocked circa 2006 along with every other college white girl in the country. These are actually work appropriate and – dare I say it – sophisticated. I feel like this whole look is very Parisian. Oh la la. Bonjour. Croissant.

And make no second mistake, not all culottes are created equal. They’re everywhere these days, and I tried on several pairs before I found ones that worked for me. So if you want to jump on this very comfy bandwagon, just keep trying. The structured ones didn’t work for me. Flowy was the way to go. But I’m sure it depends on your own style and body type. I love these so much, I’m thinking about ordering them in another color.

Bon weekend!

    Not a trend I’ve gotten into (other than, as you said, back like every other white girl in college LOL); now I’m interested. Love the pop of red from your flats!

    I love culottes, gauchos – all of them. I love going straight up 70s with them and wear then with knee high boots and a quilted jacket or corduroy blazer.

    Shortly after I moved to Chicago, I wore a pair with a blouse that is similar to the one you are wearing here (except mine was pale yellow from anthro) and someone asked me if I was an artist. I was over the moon from that comment (I am not an artist, I’m a psychologist- so pretty darned exciting!).

    Oh my god – I just found my circa 2006 Target jersey gauchos in the back of a drawer during a recent closet clean out. I had no idea that I still had them!

    This whole outfit is sophisticated AF. Especially that last picture 🙂
