The Culotte Jean
I can't remember a more exciting time in denim than now. I mean, the early aughts when designer denim first became a thing might qualify (we all remember how important those fancy back pockets were right?) Or 2012-2013 when we had jeans in every color of the rainbow (I definitely fell victim to a few too many pairs of those). But I am, at heart, a denim purist, I think. So a pair of true blues with no flashy logos is always infallible. Currently we've got so many different silhouettes to play with that it really feels like you can't go wrong no matter what you pick: culottes, kick flares, high-waists, step hems, mom jeans, straight legs, boyfriend jeans, girlfriend jeans, fringed hems, and everything in between. Even though I still love a great pair of skinnies, they're starting to feel a bit stale with all of the fresher cuts on the scene.
With this in mind, I decided to try out my first pair of culotte jeans. Still kind on on the fence about them...despite being a petite-sized pair, I feel like I need to be taller to pull these off perhaps. Or maybe a fancier pair of shoes would do the trick. What do you gals think?
