Culottes or no culottes?

Wearing brown and black together to twist a classic outfit. Victoria Victoria Beckham military dress with tan Kieselstein cord belt, H buckle, tan Kate Moss for Longchamp bag and Anne Klein tan T-strap pumps. The belt is knotted for some extra edge

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:

  1. They are a trend one cannot rework when it’s over. 🙁
  2. They are expensive, especially in (burgundy red, brown, or forest green) leather. :/
  3. 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 🙁  ).
  4. 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.

Zoom-in on the upper part of the outfit to show the sleeve details. When one bends the arm the elbow will show. The offset of the H-buckle from the center balances the knot on the other side. Since military is associated with strong order the knot gives some twist to the outfit

For another way how I wore this dress see here.
