OOTD - Aritzia White Culottes


If there was one trend that made me hesitate this spring and summer, it had got to be culottes.  I loved the way they looked on others but basically wrote them off for myself, thinking that they were not meant for petites.  My thoughts changed when I rocked my pink culotted jumpsuit for Toronto Fashion Week, and since I've been on the hunt for the perfect pair of white culottes. My hunt started and finished at Aritzia when I found the perfect pair.  I just love the shape of these culottes, and may just need to go back to get another (they come in both grey and black.)  Throw on a pair of your favourite heels, and us petite ladies can definitely get behind the culotte trend.

What do you guys think about the culottes?  Are you into them, or is this one trend that you would rather pass on?  Let me know!

  2. I'm in the same boat as you. I've liked them on others but I'm petite AND pear-shaped so it's like...am I going to just look like extra wide? Hmm...

    1. I am pear shaped too - that's what kept me away from culottes for so long. I actually think that the culottes are flattering on pear shapes, especially with a pair of heels. Almost camouflages the hips under the loose pants LOL

  3. I have always loved culottes and they have been a staple in my wardrobe for years. I especially love wearing them in the fall with boots and a turtleneck. I think they are a classic and a great alternative to wearing a skirt. You look amazing in them!!
