Monochromatic Look: Boxy Tee and Culottes

Culottes are back this spring! 
I like to embrace this pant shape in a clean monochromatic look. I went with all black of course, and paired these pleated wide leg trousers with a boxy crop top tee, and wore my favorite lace up heels.

Culottes can be tricky because of its length and silhouette, but this pair hit my leg at the right spot for my height. If you're worried about how you will look in this trend, start with a solid color culotte like black or white because it'll appear more sleek and high fashion. This is the perfect modern outfit that is both comfortable and chic. You can go to work and then straight to dinner with this contemporary ensemble. 

Fun Fact: Spring 1927 culottes had found its place in the wardrobe of active, fashion conscious women. This silhouette has been around long before but it was trending like crazy in the 30s, and it also made a comeback in the 60s.
