How to Style Cream Culotte Pants

by - July 28, 2015

Dressing for the summer heat can be as simple as shorts and a breezy blouse. That is however until you have to adhere to the "casually elegant" dress code of your friend's (day time, backyard) bridal shower and then -panic-. Panic on the account of the lack of decent dresses in my closet and my affinity to (tailored) pants (which I do believe are acceptable elegant wear - except not when the sun is raging war on the human race).

Solution: Culottes

Ever since the first time I saw these new trendy pants I knew it was only a matter of time before I would enlist them for their satorial services lol. I got lucky when Wetseal decided to have a ridiculous sale in April where I bought my first two pairs (cream and black) for 60% OFF!!! Now that I have them, I must say, I never knew I would love any other pants like I do cigarette trousers but alas, culottes have won me over! By far they're the most versatile pants- easily taking you from casual to dressy with a change of top. I was hesitant about wearing them being only 5ft tall but luckily for me these particular Wetseal pair just so happens to be shorter than the average culottes. PLUS, the wide-leg cut which falls just below your knees also allows for all the ventilation you need to tackle the summer heat!

For my rendezvous with my lady friends, they were PERFECT by both dresscode and thermal standards. With the addition of my favorite crop top (also seen here) and chunky sandals, mission bridal shower was a success!
