Culottes are a hot thing this fall. I love their being partly pants, partly skirt. Yep, they are sort of odd and edgy. I love edgy and odd. I adore culottes, especially, when they are in leather. I always liked them when they had a fashion moment, but for some odd reason I never bought a pair. I can’t really nail it why. The more I think about it, the less I understand it.
The thing that holds me back, I guess, is ratio. I can come up with much more reasons why not to get a pair of culottes than reasons why to get a pair:
- They are a trend one cannot rework when it’s over. 😦
- They are expensive, especially in (burgundy red, brown, or forest green) leather.
- They are hard to adjust to the right fit and length, i.e. the search will take a lot of time (and by then the trend may be already over 😦 ).
- They are hard to style as they are the fashion statement (read risky here).
The only argument in favor of them is that I love them <3.
Do you have a fashion item that you really would like to own, but never bought? Which one is it? Why did you not buy it? Ok, too expensive I fully understand, but I mean – other than that. Send me an email or a tweet.
For another way how I wore this dress see here.
