Hi everyone, and I hope your week has gotten off to a great start! Today’s look mixes both new and vintage. There’s just something about culottes that conjures images of 1930s/40s style for me, but no matter the decade, this pant will always be classic. I had been searching for a white pair of culottes and really love this style I found from Nordstrom (currently 40% off!) The silky fabric is lined, there’s a little bit of elastic in the back of the waist for comfort, and most importantly, no alterations were required–I am barely 5’4″ and have to get a lot of my pants hemmed.Despite the fact that these culottes are vintage-inspired, wearing them with a crop top is definitely modern and gives this outfit a fresh spin.As with most cropped pants, I like to wear culottes with heels since it helps elongate my legs, and delicate ankle-strap sandals balance out their billowy silhouette.Thanks to their breezy style, culottes are the perfect solution for summer nights when you want a little more coverage but need to stay cool, which is just what I did for dinner on our last night in Capri. They are definitely a transitional piece for fall as well: I’m imagining mine with a cropped leather jacket or a sleeveless turtleneck once cooler weather arrives.
