Someone made the perfect comparison to culottes for me, which was that they are like a midi skirt. I will go as far as say that culottes are simply the pants version. You get the best of both worlds when you are wearing them. The flowy feeling you get from a skirt with the comfort of pants. The best part is how chic you will look while wearing them.
It is definitely a style risk that is not for the faint of heart. Keep this in mind though, any trend that makes you nervous is a trend worth trying. A trend like that is sure to turn heads and a necessity for your wardrobe.
The turtleneck/culotte combination is total ode to the 1970s where the trend originated. Pairing it with these chic booties is a way to update it and give the look some edge. Notice that the turtleneck is fitted and slightly cropped. This will give the outfit balance.
The beaded kimono will look super fab when combined with a crop top and midi heels. It will give you a boho chic look that is dying for compliments.
