Suede Culottes

I’ll never forget the first time I saw culottes in a magazine; my first thought was…literally NO ONE can wear those except skinny 5’11” models who look good in everything. And for a while, that’s the opinion I stuck with. I always envied the girls who rocked them, but just didn’t think it was in the fashion cards for me.

I must admit…the more I saw these culottes appearing on Pinterest, the more they grew on me, and the deeper the desire became to find out if I could in fact pull these off.

Old Navy is one of my go-to retailers for cute comfortable clothes that are always at a great price. When I realized they had their own line of culottes, I was intrigued! I viewed the options online and was so drawn to this suede pair. The fact that two trends came together to form the perfect pant was something that I couldn’t resist!

When I received them in the mail, I panicked again and wondered how the heck I was going to pull these off. After a few deep breaths and a little bit of studying up on my options on Pinterest, my worries were laid to rest.

I decided to stick to a simple black ribbed mock neck top with black heeled sandals and a black clutch. The pieces were all easy and minimal, but when paired together they formed a standout outfit that I felt like a million bucks in. {Sidenote: I customized this clutch with Essex LA online and I’m OBSESSED! The leather is the most incredible quality and texture. To make it more unique, I chose red lining and it makes me so happy and sassy every time I open it. Check out their customization process here. This one is the Louie, which is the bigger option!}

These culottes are comfortable, affordable, and made for real women…not just models! The best part is they have so many to choose from! Major bonus: everything online at Old Navy is being offered at 30% off right now until 12/12, and 40% off your purchase of $75 or more! Just use code EXTRAGIFT. They’re also saying there’s a ton for 60% off as well…so basically Old Navy is giving away amazing items that you need, these pants included 😉

Sizing Info: I’m normally a 25 in denim, so I grabbed these culottes in a size 0 and they fit perfectly! They’re slightly higher waisted, so keep that in mind. I’m just under 5’5″ and these hit me a couple of inches below my knee.

    I love how you pulled the outfit together!! I thought the exact same thing when I first saw culottes, and I was so jelly of those who could pull the style off so effortlessly! All that has changed now. I can’t wait to get my own pair. 🙂
