After what felt like YEARS of searching – but which was, in fact, about two days – I finally tracked down some petite black culottes. I dabbled in the culotte trend last year with a bright patterned pair, but I decided this season that I wanted some plain black ones to wear for work – and I must say, I bloody love ’em.

I have kept things monochrome (there’s a shock) and just accessorised with my everyday Olivia Burton watch and this gold cross belt that I got from Primark eons ago. Whenever I wear this belt I do like to tick it off as ‘another time I would have worn the classic Moschino belt if I had one’. I think if I reach twenty times then I can maybe justify the cost to myself (who am I kidding; I think I would actually have palpitations if I handed over £175 for a belt. Much better to keep pretending I would in my head).

Overall, I actually really like this outfit and think it would be appropriate for work, as well as things I actually want to do with my time such as shopping and getting drunk in the daytime. Ah, hobbies – it’s important to have them.

What do you all think of the culotte trend? Let us know in the comments!

    I am really impressed I haven’t found any culottes I am brave enough to wear but they look so beautiful on, I think you have inspired a purchase! xx

      A lot of the ones I’ve seen in stores have been in leather or different colours, so I think I needed plain black to ease me into them haha. You would look smokin’, so definitely give them a go! xx

      Aw thank you – it’s a nightmare to maintain! I really want a ta fedora for spring/summer, will have to track one down in H&M again as they’re so reasonably priced compared to Topshop or somewhere 🙂 xx

    I love culottes, I wore a pair pretty much all last summer. You look great in these

      I was mainly worried about my legs looking stumpy in them (not something you have to worry about you lucky woman!), so I’m glad I found these petite ones 🙂 xx

      Thank you! The belt was only about £2 at the time, steal 🙂 xx

    I love these culottes on you! I definitely need a pair in my life, might order some this week. 🙂

      Aw, thank you 🙂 My obsession has well and truly grown, I now have my eye on quite a few more pairs…! xx

      Thanks so much! I practically live in monochrome haha xx
