OOTD- Pinstriped Culottes

Does anyone else have the childhood memory of wearing gaucho pants literally everywhere? I say childhood memory because I would have been about 9 years old at the time of the trend; I know, I’m just a squirt. But even my Build-a-Bear had a wardrobe full of the cropped bottoms. Years later I looked back on the trend distastefully; however, fashion’s once again come full circle and is right back to those good ol’ days of wide legged pants. When the trend first made its return appearance on the runway a few years back, I dreaded the thought. Now? Now I’m rocking culottes every other day. Funny how tastes change in time and with trend. So my question to you is just that. How do you feel about this wide legged pant’s comeback? Let me know in the comments!

For this look, I paired a sage coloured off the shoulder crop top from Forever 21 with some striped culottes from Mango. I chose a subtle top to keep the focus on the pants. I absolutely love the added detail of the slit on the front of the pant legs; it makes the pants so flowy and comfortable! My mom actually liked these pants so much that she stole them from me, and I ended up buying her her own pair! Check out the full look below.

  1. I like the slit detail a lot on the pants…it makes people look because they’re probably thinking: are those pants or a skirt? I used to own gaucho pants and really liked them. Your whole look was very whimsical and definitely inspired me today. Beautiful photos!
