Culotte in Chinatown

Wearing my culotte in Chinatown - Outfit Post

While in London last month, I met up with old and new friends alike. One friend I hadn’t seen in ages was Dominika. Back when I was living in London, we were both PR interns at People Tree. We met up for a coffee to catch up and reminisce on old times. Fun fact: While I moved back to Germany, she’s actually the PR manager at People Tree! Anyway, after our coffee we set off for a walk around Chinatown and I grabbed the chance to take some outfit pictures.

Hey Culotte

I found this culotte at a vintage store in Leiden, one of a few great purchases I made there. To be honest, culotte trousers are a little bit out of my comfort zone. I usually don’t venture far from my trusted skinny jeans or skirts. Anything that’s midi or well, a culotte, hasn’t made it’s way into my closet yet. But I have wanted to get a little more adventorous with fashion again and this trouser is a great start.

After seeing enough cool people wearing culottes and always liking it, that needed to change. This summer I have resolved to be a bit more adventureous in my shopping habits. I started with getting a wide-legged pair of trousers. It definitely helped that these are second hand. They were so much more affordable and I had to get them right that minute, so no turning back there.

I have already worn them a few times and I love how comfortable they are. Added bonus: I can wear these trousers on a hot summer day at the office. They are really light-weight. Still, they don’t show too much skin, so it’s still office appropriate. So far I’ve only worn them with a simple t-shirt and jean jacket. I am thinking about trying some new combinations though. Any favourite ways you combine your culotte trousers?
