CULOTTES & FAUX FUR

 

IMG_1180_edited

Happy new week y’all!! You know how I mentioned in my previous post about trying out new trends? Today’s post is a classic example of me stepping out of my comfort zone. And my oh my, I am loving it. When the culottes trend came back in a major way, I remember saying I am never wearing that. I just never thought it would look great on me only because of my wide hips and big thighs. In my mind, it looked better on skinnier women. Then I walked into Zara and my whole perspective changed. They were having a major sale and I said to myself it wouldn’t hurt to try these on, besides I would never buy them. You should have seen my expression when I put these on, everyone that saw me in  these immediately said I couldn’t possibly leave them behind. Thank God I didn’t, because it definitely has become my favorite purchase from Zara and for less than $20, it was a really great buy. I also snagged a fur vest (which I never was fond of in the past) knowing they would pair well together. I styled these culottes with a black bodysuit from Boohoo and my all time favorite bootie from shoedazzle making it oh so perfect for a date night with the girls or your special someone.

All in all, I love this entire ensemble. It looks amazing on my body and even though it screams fall, I see myself wearing these all year round. You can also pair these culottes with a white button down shirt and a classic black, nude or leopard pumps for a day at the office. Never shy away from trying out new trends, you never know how great they would look on you. I believe that paying attention to fabrics that work for your body type is key. Like me, I almost always need some stretch in my clothes, with wide hips and a small waist, it is hard to find clothes that work well for my shape without having some stretch (unless it is custom-made lol). Enjoy the rest of week!

    That culottes looks so gorgeous on you, love the styling as well. Zara is one of my favorites places to shop especially during their sales period, I always find the most amazing pieces for a fraction of the cost.

    Have a blessed week!
