I wasn’t a big fan of culottes when they came into fashion, until the day I tried one at the Zara store. I realised after wearing them that it would be very difficult to go back to wearing jeans in this humid Mumbai weather, specially when heading to work. Frankly I didn’t even know they were called culottes till I saw Anisha write a post wearing her favourite tan ones which I must admit are quite cool. The ones I picked up was a lovely powder blue colour.
What are culottes? ‘It is a women’s knee-length trouser, cut with full legs to resemble a skirt.’ If you don’t own one already you will find some great ones in Zara. Post the blue ones, I picked up two more to wear to work but my sister was not convinced. She insists they look like cropped pyjamas and I couldn’t pass them off as fashionable culottes. I beg to differ and will soon do an outfit post in my defense to prove that she is wrong.
I would prefer them without the slits on the side. Will go hunt for another in my next shopping expedition.
Also you must read our last post. This Diwali, we introduced our first collection of saris – ZARI by Fashion and Frappes. These are now available in our Shop section. Take a look – you can buy them online straight from our website as well.
