Not wanting to limit these comfortable babies to my evening wear, I tested them out with a professional blazer and braved the office environment. I was met with tons of compliments as to how professional yet trendy I looked which only proved to me that they can be in fact, work appropriate. But, it did make me wonder why people were sooo surprised that I looked so “professional”….What do I dress like on a regular basis?!
At first I was a little hesitant about the culottes trend based on my body type (Read: short), but I have been pleasantly surprised. I always wear them with a bit of a heel so I don’t look too stumpy, but they are not at all as bad as I had thought! Plus, they are so breezy and comfortable. Perfect for spring/summer weather. Oh, and if you weren’t sold already, these have an elastic waistband.

I especially love the fact that this pair is pretty inexpensive. I never want to spend to much $$ on my trendier pieces since I might only wear them a season or two.
I’ve got a bunch of uses out of these so far, and they haven’t lost their shape or started to fall apart. Plus, although they get wrinkled, it usually takes a days worth of wear before they warrant a bit of a steam/iron. Definitely one of those items where you don’t have to splurge to look like you did.
