COOL FOR CULOTTES

posted by Elshane on May 6 2014, under Fashion

Effortless flow comes with the territory of random summer heat waves in California. Such was the case this past Saturday while visiting the LACMA. In 95 degree dry heat, I grabbed the airiest item in my closet, these brand new (and mega affordable) culottes that give spring a perfect note of cool. Pack away the summer flowy skirts and replace them with this season's version: the culotte/ gaucho/ pants jam that has every blogger whispering from afar ;)

Who knows, the dance in these pants might just have you stopping for an impromptu stop-and-shoot to stake your claim on this breezy new silhouette territory. Just promise me you won't wear them with flip-flops, k?

I'm cool for culottes this summer!

The trend has been spotted in all fabrications--from this lace jumpsuit to denim jeans.

It's surprisingly flattering on most body types. Since the trend cinches at the mid waist and falls into a flair out to above the ankle, it elongates and thins the leg at any height.

PS-- I'm in Greece right now on summer vacation. Have you checked my instagram lately? I'm sharing all real-time outfits plus more from my amazing adventure and it's a do not miss feed! Follow along @elshanesworld!

CREAM OF THE CROPPED

There's something about a trendy item that just never sits well with me. I picture walking into a restaurant towards a sea of twinning girls, my absolute worst nightmare.

But then again, to abandon trends all together is not my style either. Trendy girls can't just call "dibs" on certain looks-- not under my watch!

So I stand somewhere in the middle. Here's a case where I found a really trendy item-- the denim culotte, and made the most of it. For under $65, I scored not only something that has refreshed my closet in a major way, but also an item that flatters my body and is beyond baby-proof. {Shout out to never wear silk again, sadly. The spit-up game is real.}

These culottes from CottonOn were just what I needed last weekend during a routine trip to Rodeo Drive. And to be able to pair them back to my staple designer shoes and accessories made me feel at home where I'm most myself... on the streets of Beverly Hills, of course!!! :)
