OOTD | How To Layer Culottes










I feel like I haven't posted a proper OOTD in donkey's years! Late Jan/Feb was totally swallowed up by lingerie and nightwear posts for Valentine's Day (infact, I still have one left to post) so it's nice to finally get back to full outfits. If you don't like lingerie posts, then apologies for the past month! 

I personally love culottes, but I know they can be a hit and miss item for many people. Being a petite girl it can be really tricky to get the styling of culottes right, but I think layering is one of the easiest ways to style them with success. Here I've popped my culottes under a midi cardigan and a belted camel coat, topped off with a simple white shirt and smart pointed shoes. Layering culottes up helps you play with lengths and add more dimension to your overall look - it also takes a little bit of attention away from the culottes themselves, which is good if you're nervous about debuting them in your wardrobe. For another easy way to style them up, try a fitted turtleneck crop top and some killer ankle strap heels; the added height from the heel will prevent you from looking stumpy (welcome to my life), and the fitted top will help give some shape to the look.

Have fun styling!
