Oh man, what's up with the weather here in the Netherlands?! After my week in Berlin earlier this month, where we've had the most springiest weather, we're now back to Winter? To keep the Spring-feeling I've decided to show you photos of one of the outfits I shot in Berlin featuring the culottes.
The culottes... I think you've seen them come by a lot lately. Everywhere you look it's a must-have-item for spring / summer. Normally I'm not a big fan of must-have-items, because I think you just have to wear whatever you want and not because something is a 'trend' at the moment, but with the culotte I have to say I'm a big fan! And it's indeed a must-have-item ;)
I was searching for the right one for some time now and trust me, it wasn't that easy to find. I wanted a black one (of course) because you can combine it easily and you can wear it on different occasions. Also, I wanted a wide one, but not too wide because I'm not that tall (which is an understatement :P). I saw a few that were perfect, but also very expensive and I didn't want to spend so much money on it. And then I saw this one at Uniqlo when we were visiting Berlin.
I like that the model is a bit more formal, so you can style it with pumps, a blouse and a jacket and wear it to the office, but you can also dress it down, like I did in this shoot. I decided to style it with a black turtleneck with tiny glitters, my white nikes and because it was a bit chilly that day I also wore my new vest-coat designed and made by my very good friend Ebby Port (you can read about my visit to her atelier here). And last, but not least, I added my new burgundy bag for a pop of color.
What do you think of this outfit and of the culottes in general?
