Culottes started to build as a mirco-trend a couple of seasons ago, with just a few high street stores featuring them in their ranges. This season though going from trans into spring summer I have seen far more stores have culottes as a key shape in their collections. Here these ASOS soft drape version culottes have not one trend, but two; with the folding pleats at the waist. They are beautifully crafted with excess fabric in the legs to create a great drape when walking in this style. As a key fashion trend I do believe it is worth investing in a pair worth, whether it is a casual piece like these or a more tailored shape.
With oversized culottes like these I would advise anyone to wear them with a fitted t-shirt or bodysuit, to counteract the oversized look of the culottes. Here I have picked out this ribbed long sleeve fitted crop top from H&M, I love the wrap detail at the back giving this look a point of difference. If you want see how I styled my denim culottes, check out this blog post here and for more of tailored version check out this.
Let me know your thoughts on the outfit and what you guys have planned for this long weekend ahead. I will be travelling back up North for a couple of days to visit friends in Liverpool. We are going to a food and drink festival so fingers crossed the weather holds out for us. What ever you get up to hope you have a wonderful weekend!
