Is anyone else LOVING culottes for fall? Or make that all year round?

I work in a very casual office! When I say casual, I mean I could wear a pair of jeans, a tee shirt, and converse everyday and no one would give me a second look, which I am definitely not complaining about when I just don’t feel like putting a thought into my outfit…we all have those days right! While I am all for a good casual outfit (sometimes the most casual outfits can be the most chic), I am a major girly-girl at heart who loves to play dress up! I can’t resist putting together office chic outfits! It is so fun to experiment with different silhouettes, fabrics, and shapes!

Cue in the culottes! Have I said I LOVE culottes? Oh yes, I have! I used to think culottes were for stuffy women who worked boring 9-5 jobs and wanted to have a little wiggle room after that big company lunch! But little did I know, they are so unbelievably stylish (I may have bought two-one in black and one in white!)! A pair of culottes can literally go with anything…from a casual tee, to a more formal blouse, to heels, to boots! LITERALLY everything! Get ready to say yes to that big promotion because there is no way your boss can say no to you in culottes! And I am definitely not complaining with how they feel after a big lunch…those stuffy office ladies were on to something!

Are you wearing culottes for fall? If so, I’d love to hear how you style them! If not, I just have to ask…why the heck aren’t you?! Shop my favorites below, including the MUST HAVE satchel bags for fall, and steal the spotlight at work! #girlboss approved!

  2. Love your whole outfit, so cute! Just curious how you line up the images from the retailer, I have not problem doing it vertically, the horizontal part has me stumped! Very adorable look!

    Love culottes. Comfortable classy and hide few flaws I want hidden.

    I was extremely nervous to wear culottes because I didn’t know what shoes to pair with them to make them look proportional and not cut my leg off….but, I really love the way you paired them with booties. I may have to invest in a pair…. 😀

      Yes they are a bit strange, I have to admit! They can be tricky to pair shoes with. I really didn’t think about pairing them with booties (I normally pair them with simple pumps), but I was running out the door and threw them on and realized they looked super cute! You should totally invest in a pair! You won’t regret it!

    Omg! I love this look. I’ve seen culottes in stores and wasn’t sure I could pull them off because I’m pretty short (5’5) but this is just too cute. I might have to try some on!

    • Samantha says:

      I think you definitely can! It’s all about proportions and making sure you find ones that aren’t too long or baggy! And probably pairing it with heels and a more fitted top! I think you should definitely give them a try! Thanks for reading and stopping by!

    LOVE that purse! Whoever said you can’t mix brown and black was a liar!

    • Samantha says:

      Definitely so true! I believe black can literally go with everything! And brown and black are the perfect combo for fall!
