What Are Culottes? How To Rock Them!


Some of you have probably already seen the term and are wondering what are “culottes”.

Culottes are women’s cropped trousers with very wide legs sort of resembling a skirt.

You might also find them as “gauchos”, which to me, are very similar to culottes, with the only exception that gauchos are bit tighter at the hips.

I noticed the culottes trend made its comeback in the early Spring this year, and it’s here to stay for Fall and Winter as well.

A trend like this one could be a little tricky to adopt at first, being that is a bit different from what we are used to wearing. I mean, we were sooo used to skinnies, leggings and jeggings for a while, that wearing boyfriend jeans and palazzos has been a hard transition for some of us. And now all of a sudden culottes and gauchos reappear to make us even more skeptical about wearing baggier bottoms.

I decided to do a little research to see how some stores have approached this trend and presented it to their customers, meaning US.

I came up with 10 lovely ways on how to rock the culottes trend. Check them out:

 

 

 What Are Culottes? 10 Ways How To Rock Them!

 

 

1. Monochromatic

This would definitely flatter almost anyone, specially petite girls, because it would give the illusion of a longer torso, making you look taller. Love this approach from ZARA in all White and pairing a pair of culottes with a fitted turtleneck. This look is perfect for Fall and Winter ♥

2. Jumpsuit

You can adopt the trend by wearing a culotte jumpsuit. I personally bought this one myself from Material Girl at Macy*s. You can wear it with flats or heels, with or without a jacket or cardi. Definitely suitable for any season being that it is all about how you accessorize it. I wore mine with flat sandals and sunnies last week to tour around Philly with my family. I LOVED IT! ♥

3. Romantic With Crop Top

Pair them with a crop top like in this pic from ASOS. I am truly in love these high waist lace culottes paired with this ruffle crop top. They both create such a romantic look ♥

4. Comfy Casual With Sneakers & Sweater

I was not too convinced of wearing culottes with sneakers until I saw this approach from ZARA. I love these yellow culottes paired with sneakers and a comfy sweater. I think the key relies on wearing all solids. Love ittt ♥

5. Bohemian

Forever 21 created this boho look by pairing printed culottes with a loose crocheted cami and lace up sandals. I would say you can even add a moderate floppy hat if you want to!

6. Cozy With Knee High Boots & Cardi

This is the perfect Fall/Winter culottes outfit! It looks so chic and cozy! Anthropologie definitely hit it off with this one. They threw a warm cardi over a sweater. I believe what makes this outfit a hit is the monochrome look at the bottom and the print touch on the top still in the same color family. Even though the item is currently not available on their site, I believe their pic could still serve as great inspiration, don’t you think?

7. Classy Chic

This is a more dressy look from ASOS where they paired statement split culottes with a button down top and added stiletto sandals. This look is super elegant and sexy!

Monochromatic Outfit For Easter * Stylo 179♥

A Monochromatic Outfit is synonym of elegance and boldness. You can wear similar hues from head to toe or you can wear different tones within the same color family.

You can also wear a monochromatic outfit by pairing light colors for a subtle demure look, or you can wear a bright hue to definitely grab everyone’s attention.

Whichever way you end up choosing, you will definitely make a statement and will be receiving lots and lots of compliments.

For Easter 2015, I am going to wear a Peach Monochromatic Outfit. I must confess that this is my first time wearing all peach, but I so love the outcome that I think I will be adding more of this color family to my wardrobe.

Monochromatic outfits are also great to emphasize or highlight an accessory. In my case, I just wanted to add a pop of color, therefore I incorporated a skinny belt and painted my nails in turquoise blue. I also added a statement bracelet with peach and blue accents.

I am in love with midi dresses and skirts, plus I also adore peplums; this is why I chose this dress. I needed a dress that would make me look trendy, elegant and a bit slimmer! Not an easy task, ha!

The Makeup is also based on peach hues, creating a soft look perfect for the outfit I am wearing.

All my Jewelry is in gold, and it is part of Lakshmi’s Jewelry Collection I sell.

Feathered Skirt* Stylo 161♥

This Feathered Skirt is really a statement piece! I was hosting Lakshmi’s Pre-Holiday Event at my house this weekend, and I wanted to wear something glamorous, and I honestly think I could not have chosen a better outfit than this one.

The Holidays are here and I wanted to wear something that would reflect that, so I chose to wear feathers, lace and ALL black.

The skirt as well as the lace tights are from EXPRESS. I love the feathers/lace combination; I think is so sexy and elegant at the same time!

I also added lace pumps and a simple black top, both from Mandee.

The Makeup is all about the smoky eyes/nude lips combo. I left my Hair loose with a split in the middle.

All of my accessories belong to Lakshmi’s New Jewelry Collection. Stay tuned! It will soon be available on my Store! It is actually a very nice collection inspired on the Holidays.

I had an awesome time with everyone who came to my house this Saturday! Thanks so much for all the Love ♥

We all had a great time sipping some wine while I presented my new Jewelry Collection 😉

Fast Fashion Trends? Shop At Mavy Savvy!

Fast fashion clothing are inspired on the latest fashion trends presented at Fashion Week, getting designed and manufactured quickly, to also make it affordable to the mainstream consumer.

I recently found out about Mavy Savvy, an online fast fashion store where you can find unique and trendy pieces at incredible prices!

What I love about Mavy Savvy the most, is that every piece is unique and versatile, what allows me to create my own singular style. They also offer only a few pieces per item, this way, you won’t take the risk to find someone else wearing the same clothing as you.

I am definitely NOT a fashion addict who merely sticks to the latest trends, since I go more for what I like, whether it’s “IN” or not. If I feel like wearing something, you bet I am going to with no doubt about it.

But since I am a fashion lover, which it is different, I love knowing what is trending, so if I like it, I will definitely wear it, always taking the price into consideration.

The least I want is to get stuck with something which I pay a lot of money for, and the trend went by in the blink of an eye!!!

But A “Mavy Girl” is a successful, fashionable and sophisticated girl with a high self-esteem and a cultivated taste for upscale, unique products and services. “Image is very important to her, not as evidence of status or power, but as an expression of her taste, independence, and personality.”

I can definitely relate to this statement, and this is how I would describe myself.. therefore I am a Mavy Girl!

And I bet that is more or less how you would describe yourself too!

In that case, let me show you some of the pieces that caught my eye from their site.

These are statement tops that will definitely make you stand out from the crowd! Specially that Kimono in the center of the collage…I would wear it with a pair of hi-rise skinnies and a crop top.

Even the cardigans are unique in their own way… and I truly love the longsleeve short jumpsuit to wear it with a pair of nice pumps.
