I was convinced culottes (pants) would never fit my silhouette. It may not seem so in my pictures but I am not leggy-tall. So 3/4 length and large cut bottoms tend to make me look even smaller and chubbier. Furthermore, I thought they wouldn’t match my style. Putting my prejudice aside, I decided to give culottes a try. Surprise – I got fond of this La Redoute x Etienne Deroeux model! As first attempt, I stayed simple with a monochromic look (all clothing items were from La Redoute e-store: shop now!). I wore white maxi coat over white turtleneck top, with my practical Diesel bag and shiny Minelli reptile-style leather shoes. Well, sometimes you just have to let go of preconceived ideas go and try on the pieces!
