In all honesty, I wasn't sure, but alike everything in the fashion world, I'm willing to give it a go.
I bought this pair a while ago and have never been confident in wearing them until now. Whether thats just my confidence changing or my beliefs in a trouser. I'm not sure...
A-n-y-way... these culottes are perfect for me because they have a slight A-line structure, the secret ingredient, the dream in fact, if you are busty like me. Because the width will balance your boobs out and accentuate your waist, therefore creating a more hourglass-like figure. They also look more like a skirt from far away and/or at first glance, which is like two outfits in one? Who needs a costume change?
Don't get me wrong, I'm partial to a straight leg culotte too, but I just think the wider leg suits me better. Oh and I do love a bit of houndstooth/prince of wales check.
and that's culotte. (works so much better with shallot, food puns are the greatest, BUT, this post is about pants, it'll have to do.)
