I was thinking really hard for an attractive title to this post and i had wanted to name it “3/4 pants” or “wide legged pants”, but it just doesn’t seem to fit in, so decided to choose the simple and direct way: Culottes. Culottes or the 3/4 pants has been pretty much the ‘IT’ bottom recently. And i am somewhat ashamed to admit that i did have a pair of it in dusty pink, but just last year, i threw it away. Yes, i threw it away. So you can tell that i really do not have much ‘prophecy power’ that it will be back in fashion again huh. #ifonlyihadknown

culottes-feature-image@2xIn case you didn’t know how a pair of culottes looks like, the top picture is for your visualization 🙂 Culottes, if carefully matched, it can create a classy yet stylish look. So, that detailed coordination is the crux. Let’s take a look at some good examples:


In order not to look short (especially if you are really short, like me), try pairing it with ankle strap heels. It doesn’t have to be very high heels, but its a must to have that strap around your ankle, like the one above. Such heels can definitely add a tinge of classiness and style to the entire outfit.


Another type of shoes to pair it with will have to be my all-time favorite pointed heels (like the above-right). Such shoes gives a very classic-classy feel as well as making you look slimmer and even taller.

If you are asked to attend an event that states the dress code as “Smart Casual”, culottes would fit in nicely. Why. Because its 3/4 in length, which usually gives a more casual, ‘slacky’ look, however to pair with pointed heels or even ankle strap heels, it can help to ‘elevate’ the classy level in you.

Also in choosing the top to match with the said bottom, i personally would choose something not too baggy, or oversize. These ones above suits them just good. Oversize / baggy tops would create a ‘big’ look overall, which all ladies want to avoid. If you prefer floral or even prints, go ahead, just not oversize / baggy ya.

(Top) Not saying that this look is ‘no good’, but i personally will not wear my culottes with a pair of sandals / slippers. UNLESS i am confident that i can still pull the whole outfit well. Or maybe unless you are a model?

culottes-1-640x550Remember my earlier suggestion on not matching your culottes with oversize / baggy tops? And then you might asked “How about this lady on the left of the picture?” Like I’d said, unless you are a model or that you are confident that you can pull it off well, my suggestion is do not try it. For a start, get something simpler or body fitting, be it prints or floral, etc. It will be more flattering, overall. 🙂

So, that’s about all that i have for you on this post. I love culottes pretty much. Have not gotten another new pair yet but pls don’t judge me, lol. Have fun dressing up ladies! Once again, til my next post! Muacks!
