So far this summer has definitely been the summer of culottes. Wide-leg pants have made a strong come back and my favourite style has got to be the wide-leg hippie pants. Although I have been religiously wearing my black culottes for the past couple of months, pastel coloured culottes have been my most recent obsession.
One thing I love about these pink culottes from Sheinside.com is that they don’t flare out too much at the bottom. I find that it makes it slightly more wearable (they look like stylish pajama pants). Also I LOVE the elastic waist, it makes it extremely comfortable. Not to mention I can definitely eat a lot more when I’m wearing these pants and that always earns brownie points with me! I paired these bad girls with a cute tie-up knit top from Aritzia which I think ties the entire “hippie flower child” look together. I love how the outfit looks in the back and the mash-up of textures with the pleats and the knit. The top is so airy and light it definitely makes the outfit one of the most comfortable outfits I’ll wear this summer.
You can check out the pants here! They’re actually on sale currently for $18.99 which I think is SUCH a steal since something similar from Zara or Oak and Fort would be at least $50. They also come in a nice taupey-grey colour (which I might have to snag too) as well as just a plain black one. They are one-size but the elastic waist makes it pretty forgiving as far as the fit goes. I am usually a 25/26 waist in denim and these fit me comfortably with no muffin top whatsoever.
I was slightly worried that the pink chiffon material would be a little transparent at first, but the fabric is actually quite thick which was a pleasant surprise. The pants are also lined with a white fabric that covers your butt up to around mid-thigh so there really isn’t any worry of a wardrobe malfunction at all.
I’ve been really trying to put aside time every week to create blog content since I have more time in the summer time so I hope you guys have been enjoying it!
