Culottes are making a real comeback this season and this is how I will be embracing the trend.

These are not quite culottes but they are wider cropped pants and have a similar vibe.

I liked wearing them in this monochrome way combined with my leather top. Blue heeled sandals enhance the look and diminishes the shortening leg effect of the wider cropped pants.

I always combine these wider pants with shorter tops. It is important to show the shape of your body and ideally highlight your waist. This top is short and has a waisted silhouette, so perfect for these pants.

To add a bit of color to the outfit I added my multicolored Heleen van der Meer bag. Great for packing my camera along with me!

I also wore these wide cropped jeans with the white top I showed you last week for a more casual look with flats.


I like them better with heels though so the all-blue look is definitely my favorite.
