Culottes and Stripes

black culottes and stripes

Hi Lovelies,

Today I’d like to share with you another outfit I wore during my trip to Lille, France . In case you’ve missed the previous one, you can catch up with my Ripped Boyfriend Jeans and Adidas Superstar post here.

AirBrush_20160604131123Remember when the skort(short + skirt) was a huge trend a few years ago? Now culottes (the longer version of the skort, just below the knee) have taken over and I love it!

At first I didn’t know exactly how I would combine my black culottes (from H&M btw) or if they would even look good on me….but you know what? I decided that culottes can go with any type of shoes or top. After all, it’s me who wears culottes, culottes don’t wear me;). And since I’m only 1.62m (5″4) I like the fact that culottes fall a touch longer than just below the knees. So it almost looks like a midi skort. 🙂

black culottesI wore my culottes during my city trip to Lille. Coincidence? Noooo..LOL! I thought since these pants and the breton stripes originated from France, it would be nice to rock them there as well, right? So I went for a minimal all-over black and white look, pairing my culottes with a striped breton turtle neck from H&M, black cardigan from Primark, slip-on sneakers from TOPSHOP and a crossover bag from H&M.
