Brandy Melville off-the-shoulder top (similar here or I also love this one), ASOS culottes (I also LOVE these), Wilson Trollope X Pedro’s Bluff soiree pochette, Astrid & Miyu gemini, aries & caught in the middle rings, Sophia Webster heels (in black or this pair is really cute)
One of the newest – and most colourful – additions to my wardrobe have been these muted petal pink culottes in a soft washed linen. After becoming absolutely smitten with the same style in the black, I figured it was time to mix things up a notch with an injection of what has become one of my favourite hues over the past year – pink. Ticking off two boxes in my efforts to mix up my wardrobe (a new silhouette and a burst of colour), I thought I’d share how I’m planning to wear these as we head towards autumn.
C O L O U R
As these culottes are a statement on their own, I’ll be keeping the colours in the rest of my outfit pretty minimal, in complementing blush, white, cream or soft grey tones. While I’m not *quite* there yet, I feel like these would also look gorgeous with an oversized poppy red knit sweater lazily tucked in at the front.
S I L H O U E T T E
I adore how these culottes cinch in, which is reinforced with a belted tie at the waist. The a-line shape of the culottes mean that I can mix things up with a fitted roll neck sweater (I love this one) or ribbed off the shoulder top, as well as with an oversized cashmere crew neck loosely tucked in for those colder days.
T E X T U R E S
Unlike my black pair, these are a really lightweight linen – perfect for the warmer months. Given the weather has started to cool down (but obviously not too much), I’ll be making a nod to the change in season with rich textures like cashmere, washed silks, waffle knits and sweaters in a mohair/boucle mix which I think will give my outfits a bit of contrast.
If you’re thinking of picking up a pair of pink culottes, you really can’t beat the ones from ASOS that I’m wearing above (they also come in petite), but if you’re after a different style, you’ll find a few options in the carousel below! x
