A little leather to start out the weekend is always a good idea.
We all know I am a huge fan of culottes (see: Striped Jumpsuit & Knee High Boots & Wide Leg Pants ). Well I’m continuing that little love affair because I just found my favorite pair ever. With these leather culottes it was love at first site,
Now I know culottes can be a little intimidating and then we are adding leather into the mix as well, but culottes are surprisingly versatile and easy to pull off. The leather aspect just makes them the perfect piece to have in your fall wardrobe. I think what I love most about culottes is the wide leg fit. They are more on the relaxed side of things, but still look incredibly chic when dressed up.
This look is obviously more on the dressier side. I’ve had this lace top for years, but never wear it. It’s a really pretty top though, so I was thrilled when it paired perfectly with the leather culottes.
One important thing to note when wearing culottes is that you should always keep the your top more on the cropped side, or just tucked in. It helps to balance out the length and in my case won’t shrink you as much. When it comes to shoes you can pretty much wear what you like. Heels will obviously help in the height department, but I’ve even worn these with my white sneakers. Not entirely sure if it looked that great (again, considering my height), but I liked it, so whatever 🙂
While leather culottes, may be a little intimidating, there is plenty of inspiration out there to make them work for you. Here are some of my favorite ways to style them…
- Paired with a utility shirt and black turtleneck. I’ll definitely be recreating this look – here
- Casually with a pair of sneakers and a cozy sweater – here
- Monochrome head to toe. A favorite for me, obviously – here
