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!
