Why I’m no longer afraid of culottes

River Island Rust Culottes

I've well and truly fallen onto the culottes band wagon head first. Which is surprising as I've had a mild [huge] phobia of them since I was about 6 and swore never ever again. Ever.

Basically, when I used to go to Brownies, part of my uniform were these god awful culotte things in a shade that can only be described as poo brown that were itchy as shit and as a kid and having to wear them every Tuesday night for a couple of hours traumatised me to no end so much so I've now brought that into adulthood. Whenever I've seen them hung up in shops or whilst browsing sites online I'd shudder and think all the nopes.

I was on very looking for the perfect dungarees [which I still haven't found, black denim not skinny plz if you wanna send links my way] when these babies popped up. I didn't instantly hate them and have flashbacks to my youth, and I actually quite liked them and I really liked the colour and I was also mad I hadn't found the dungarees I wanted originally so I was all like fuck it and added them to my cart quicker than I could say ''stop Jess you have a problemmmm'' I don't [I do]

I'm so happy I did, they well and truly saved my butt this weekend. Not only was I all kinds of in love with them as soon as I had put them on, I was having an existential crisis trying to figure out just exactly what the hell I was going to wear to my best friends hen do. I had ordered a million and one dresses and sent them all back, raided my wardrobe and hated everything I put on - nothing felt ''right'' I looked over at them and was like can I really wear culottes to a hen do and well you can and it also turns out they can make you feel sassy as hell. Paired with my Topshop cami I picked up last year I think I've just created my fave go to summer [or what's left of it] outfit. side note, I *had* put on my strappy black and gold Zara heels that I love oh so much but feel like they murder my feet. No jokes, like I wore them to my Christmas do and I swear I couldn't feel my feet for about 6 months after pretty but equals death to feet.

  1. They look absolutely banging on you, I can FEEL how comfortable they are from the photos! (Which also look like you had a hell of a time getting taken!)
    Culottes would look absolutely awful on me at the moment but hey, maybe I'll give em a go at a later date when I'm a bit smaller eh.

  4. Hahaha this post made me laugh because of the photos xD you are so cute! The culottes look sooo good on you! I can somehow relate to your phobia, back in secondary school my uniform instead of a skirt I had to wear culottes >< I really didn't think I would eventually love wearing them now until I bought a pair! I think I will buy more now!! Oh no.
