My Love For Culottes

My Love For Culottes

…and why you need a pair!

I was scrolling through twitter the other day (yes I am using Twitter a lot more now, so do give me a follow @lifeastillyrose if ya want!) and I noticed a tweet that said "I'm wearing culottes for the first time today and my ankles feel so FREE". I was so shocked that they had never owned a pair before, I mean, culottes have only really blown up within the fashion world this year but I remember getting hooked on them last summer! Culottes are pretty big right now, their stylish yet effortless charm has seemed to grasp a very large amount of people buying them!

So for my declaration of love for the one and only, beautiful-god given-creation of culottes, I'd like to dedicate a whole post to them. Lets go back to the first time I tried a pair on, they were Bershka, and it literally felt like I was wearing pyjamas! My legs felt so free, and not restricted, so I fell in love with their comfort. I'm gonna take you on my culotte journey, starting with my very first pair to my latest pair – notice how I didn't say 'last' because this girl ain't stopping!

Here's all the culottes I own…



CulottesNew Look


New Look have been killing it on the culotte front recently so I decided to pick up two pairs, yes two! First, a classic black pair with the 'crinkled' or 'pleated' look (not too sure) which is so in at the moment and I had to grab a pair for myself.

TopTopshop (NOW £15!)

Then the other pair from New Look which I'm sure you would have seen a lot of people wearing recently but they were too nice not to buy! They're the dusty pink front tie culottes that just look so cute once paired with the right summery top and a denim jacket (which I STILL need to get).

Then we have last years Bershka culottes which were a treat to wear throughout last summer. They're such a soft and light material and practically feel like a pair of PJs. They also come up a little shorter than my others which keeps me nice and cool. I don't tend to wear these ones as much anymore as I prefer the material of my other ones now, but they are still great to wear on holiday.

ShoesOffice (NOW £40!)

The last pair of culottes are from Forever21, another super light, perfect for summer material. I love the wrap tie around the waist, I think it makes them look more stylish n cute. The shape of these ones are a lot more flowy as they are slightly wider which is super cool.

In my current job  I work with children, therefore I sometimes wear my culottes to work and they are so comfy and easy to move around in – I love them! Plus I recently found out that they are the best shopping outfit, easy to take on and off quickly in hectic, hot and sweaty changing rooms ๐Ÿ™‚ so that's another tick in the box from me!

That's the end of todays post, I admit I have made out that culottes are like the best thing on planet earth but all it comes down to is that I just really like them and wanted to share the love with you all :). I hope you enjoyed it, and thank you for reading!

    I really want culottes but I have tried some pairs on and because I have such skinny legs they look really weird and baggy on my legs but I’m still hoping to find a pair that suit me! This is a gorgeous post I love it! ๐Ÿ˜Xx

    I really need some culottes! I have quite chunky legs so they are so skinny round my thigh before they fit normally around my leg which is annoying! You look amazing in them!!
