I also avoided all the Memorial Day sales. I just know my shopping habits all too well and I still have quite a bit of spring cleaning to do before I’m allowed to indulge in any spontaneous shopping sprees. Non-spontaneous and well thought out shopping, on the other hand, is totally within limits and right now I’m craving… culottes!
By the way, I’m a long time fan of culottes of all lengths. They can be quite polarizing. I have many pairs of culotte shorts and I often get that look… followed by, “are those shorts? or a skirt?” Chuckles.
I love that culottes look like a skirt but have that extra comfort that you get with shorts (and no accidental flashing after a gust of wind – definitely something to consider in windy SF!) But what I’m really loving is the longer culotte, a style that will be difficult to pull at my height (5’4) but I’m on the search to find the right pair. It’s such a versatile look – culottes can be worn to work, a casual weekend outing, or a night out.
What do you think of culottes? Is this a trend you’ll be wearing?
