How To Casually Wear Culottes

How To Casually Wear Culottes

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday,

I am trying out this new concept where I show you how to wear a piece for both office and off duty.  As someone who is thoughtful about what I buy, I pride myself on being able to wear my wardrobe in more than one way, and I want to help you get the most out of your clothing too.  It can be hard finding the right look for an occasion, or wearing a piece in a different way than you usually would, but I want to inspire you to get out of your comfort zone and think of your clothing in a different context.

Today, I am showing you how to wear high waist culottes for off duty.  I recently bought them at the Nordstrom sale with the intention of wearing them for work because they are a great alternative to a work pant.  The high waist and cropped style create a flattering silhouette that is different from a traditional straight leg or trouser, but still feels polished.  Culottes are definitely a staple in my closet because they are such a versatile piece.  I personally love pairing them with a graphic or classic tee and slides, platforms or sneakers for a street styled look.  The juxtaposition between the pants and relaxed tee make it the perfect "high-low" combination that feels perfect for any occasion.

I did this shoot with Kami and Mimi from The Trendistic.  Mimi and Kami are the co-founders of The Trendistic, a Youtube channel created to inspire and uplift others by sharing personal journeys of like minded women.  They pick one boss babe a week to do a mini makeover with and talk to about beauty, and then have a sit down chat where they do an interview as well.  I was lucky enough to be one of the boss babes featured on their channel.  Get to know me and listen to our interview below.
