When we think culottes, we kind of imagine a work wear appropriate outfit. But if you have been reading my blogs I am all about getting the most out of a piece of clothing. So while athleisure is still being talked about, I planned this outfit with a sporty chic vibe. It turned out to be such a piece of cake in this sudden burst of burn down heat. (No, Mumbai does not have spring, it indeed boasts of a pre monsoon and post monsoon summer, at least I feel so.)
The focus while creating the look was of course the pinstripe culottes, the style of trousers I have been drooling and dreaming about ever since it hit international street style. I have been looking for a pair of culottes for long and weighing the versatility of the piece and this one ticks all my boxes. I love that it’s wide legged, I love its tie belt detail and I so love the pinstripes. This one is like a mini jackpot. I knew I wanted to pair my white sneakers with the culottes but was not sure if this crop top would have made the cut. But it did and that cross body totally pulled it all together, just like a cherry on top.
This breeze of an outfit is effortless, laid back and good for Friday casuals with a more fitted and longer top and great for running errands, on a day when you have lunch or brunch plan afterwards.
For any and all other outfits I might be planning around this pair of pinstripe magic and more style inspirations you can always follow me on Instagram.
