Look of the day – “Denim & Culottes”

Image

As I have mentioned here before, I truly love both denim and culottes separately.
More often now that the weather is a bit unstable in LA I bring a denim shirt with me everywhere I go. I have about 5 now.
My favourite at the moment is a distressed oversized shirt i got from paige. It runs really big but doesn’t loose structure for anything!
I felt that I needed to make this denim shirt look a bit more sophisticated in this grab-and-go look of the day, hence why I paired it with my black silk Celine culottes and snakeskin Loubutins.
I usually never wear Loubutins as I think there are so many other great shoe brands out there right now. But for this occasion I really felt like clashing elegant with super casual.
Another look that I sometimes go for is the sexy casual denim outfit. It usually looks somewhat like this;

Knowing that I am also a great fan of Acne Studios, I am in love with these low bamboo-heels I found on my trip to Sweden earlier this year. They are super comfortable and looks great with my essential pieces.
I dont like to put too much effort into dressing unless I am going to an opening or a party or something. Effortless is key. But I have my moments where I like to dress like I was hosting the Oscars! Im off to a meeting now! See you this weekend 🙂

WEAR CULOTTES

Image

Nuff said’, How to wear culottes? It can be a bit of a challenge I have to admit. If you are tall and slim anything goes really but what about the rest of us? Being 5ft 3′ might not be the ideal height for culottes but I have never given up on a look because of my frame!
I decided to focus on how to wear this incredible “cool girl” piece in all the right ways.
Many like to think that this look makes you look shorter or stumpier, however if you focus on adding the right elements with it, you can really achieve the opposite.
I have a pair of Sandro culottes in navy that I wear to death with a nude super fine turtleneck with a very long sleeve which gives my torso a more sleek and elongated look.
Then I just add a killer pointy heel or a strappy sandal to finish off the outfit.
Some shorter culottes look their best when combined with something simple like a printed t-shirt or a crop top, which also gives you more room for footwear action like a super simple birkenstock or a classic Balenciaga brogue.
Don’t be afraid to mix!
