It’s officially summer and I am beyond ready for hot beach weather perfect for the weekend but havoc for me during the work week. Why you ask? I find it most challenging to find work appropriate clothing when it’s a scorcher outside. Truth be told, I’d rather be sporting a tank and some cut offs. Sadly due to the fact that I’m not a teen nor a lifeguard, I managed to find the perfect alternative-culottes!
Culottes- (n) french origin: Garment which hangs like a skirt, but is actually pants.
I first discovered culottes over a year ago while thrifting. At first glance, I mistook it for a midi length skirt, however upon closer view, it turned out to be shorts. They come in capri length and others to the knee, but with pallazo-esque leg cuts. Fast forward a year and some later; culottes are slowly making appearances from ASOS to Topshop. This particular one I’m wearing is uber feminine and fully lined. Perfect for the modest woman hence perfect for the office (of course depending on your dress code). I paired it with a mint colored tank and coral colored light weight blazer. To play off of the colors in the floral pattern, I went with bright neon accessories and sandals.
