Ruffle blouse: ASOS
Faux leather culottes: ASOS
Nude heels: Boohoo
Liz Clairborne wristlet: JcPenney
This outfit compiles everything that I am loving in fashion right now – ruffles, bell sleeves and culottes. I wore it to the wedding of a dear friend, and it is only the second time in my life that I have worn trousers on the bottom half, instead of a skirt or a dress (and I have been to a lot of weddings). I felt proud of myself for doing something different.
I have always been fascinated with culottes, wondering if I could pull off the wide leg look without appearing frumpy. They are definitely the highlight of this outfit. I didn’t think that my first pair would be faux leather because I don’t own anything in leather, but I’ve realised that my style is evolving and I am coming out of my comfort zone. These are high-waisted, so they work well on my slight hourglass frame.
I kept the colour palette monochromatic with nude heels, a brown belt, my gold wristlet (from this post) and camel coat, which you can see a peek of in the last image.
What do you think of the outfit?
P.s. I apologise for the bad quality pictures. My phone was used to take them.
