I wore these two looks to NYFW last week, trying out two of my favorite fall trends: culottes and mustard yellow. Look 1 I wore to the Rebecca Minkoff show (meh couldn’t get any show pics :/)– this lace high neck mini dress from Forever 21 is in one of my fave current 70s shades, mustard yellow (a great color for brunettes, if I do say so myself!). I paired it with pointed toe grey Tibi booties to play against the girliness of the dress, tied a denim jacket around my waist (can’t stop won’t stop doing this recently!) to add edge and dimension to the look, and added mirrored sunnies to keep things fun and modern. The second look I wore to the Seventeen Magazine and Essie Polish event and cocktail party– and these culottes are ANOTHER F21 FIND GUYS!!! One of my fashion strategies when it comes to trends is to buy a test item at a cheapie store like Forever or H&M, before committing to a more expensive version of the item– that way you can make sure you really like it/it flatters you/you have use for it in your wardrobe routine. Turns out, I’M OBSESSED WITH CULOTTES! They are such an unexpected, nice departure from years of skinny jeans (which I still love, just need to change it up every now and again). I love them with sneaks for a casual look, with pointed toe heels for a professional vibe, or lace ups like I did here to give them some visual interest and edge. The most important thing to keep in mind with these pants (intimidating at first) is to make sure you show some ankle and your shoe choice is narrow to show contrast with the wide and flowy silhouette. I paired these blush culottes with a charcoal turtleneck and leather moto jacket– classic, but modern. Shop the links to the items above (I’ve linked similar items to sold out ones for you guys!)
Happy Fashion Month!
