FASHION // Jumping onto the culotte bandwagon

Monday, 29 June 2015

Is it just me, or are culottes absolutely everywhere right now? I keep seeing uber chic people wearing them with sliders and white shirts, looking absolutely fabulous, but have been unable to pick myself up a pair. Fortunately, my local Primark had a pair go in the sale for £5 and I couldn't help but snap them up! I have worn them once and now understand why people love them - they are so dang comfy.

Primark have absolutely got it right at the moment. They have plenty of summery cami tops with a 70s vibe which I love. I want this one in every colour. The back is gorgeous and it's a lovely fit (and just £4!) I feel very granny-ish with these super high waisted culottes and the black sandals. There is a very fine line between granny chic and wearing your grandma's clothes and I have no idea what side I'm on for this one. I guess I'll let you guys decide.


I also must say that I'm loving the sleeveless jacket thing that's going on right now. I have been wearing shirts over tops for years now (thanks to my oh-so fashion forward mother/a hatred of seeing bra straps) and want a nice formal waistcoat so much. I almost picked up a £17 chiffon one in Primark the other day before realizing it was almost identical to this shirt. Sure, there are some missing details but that £17 went towards my Cambridge Satchel Company satchel which is just beautiful and I'm in love (#myprecious).

What have been your favourite items this summer? Are you a culottes girl? Let me know!


  1. I've still not tried culottes but I really feel like I'm missing out! They look so casual yet put-together on you. You definitely don't look like you're wearing your grandma's clothes!

    I really need to try some culottes, but I don't think I'd be able to rock them :(

  3. You look gorgeous! I love 'em, but I don't think they would work for me. I'm pretty dang short and yeah no haha.
