As per usual, I am a year late on yet another fashion trend. Truth be told, I shied away from culottes because I didn’t see the point in wearing something that made me look bigger than I normally am (although I envied all other gals who could pull them off), but these culottes were part of a co-ordinate set with a crop top & I loved how the entire outfit looked together. I wore this to Thanksgiving because the culottes came with an elastic waistband & it was exactly what I needed for food-baby hiding purposes. Mission accomplished.
I think the trick to wearing clothes that are wide on the bottom is just to accentuate your waist as much as possible–these culottes were high waist and the top comes up just enough to show a little bit of skin, so the eye is drawn there as opposed to all the fabric down below. I found this set at a random boutique in San Antonio, and my mom was there with me when I tried it on; we had very opposite reactions to the culottes. I get it, they’re not for everyone, but when a piece that’s both comfortable & stylish comes around, it is definitely for me.
p.s. My earrings are Christmas bows and you can BET I will be wearing them at every holiday related thing I get invited to this year. Tis the season!!
