Culottes! They’re having a major moment right now, but I must admit that I wasn’t much of a fan.  I would come up with a million and one reasons not to add a pair of culottes to my wardrobe.  I convinced myself that I’d be unable to find the right fit, they’d make me look shorter (I’m 5’4″), they’d fall at a weird length, etc.  However, after trying this amazing pleated pair from Eloquii, I’m hooked.

There’s just something about a pair of culottes that looks effortlessly chic.  Plus, they are easy to style and can be dressed up or down, depending on the occasion.  Today, I opted to dress mine up with this adorable ruffled off-the-shoulder blouse from Eloquii and a great pair of a patent leather pumps.
So, what do you think? Would you give culottes a try?
