it’s going to be the summer of culottes and we’re not mad about it! these cropped pants are cut with a full leg that can gives the illusion that you’re wearing a skirt but with the ease and versatility of pants. we’re spotting them around town in so many pretty prints, soft fabrics and with cool pleats. we can’t wait to get our hands on a pair!
love the vintage photos of how women in the 40’s were styling them. we read that the origin of the culotte was a riding pant for women, to make it look like they were wearing a skirt but with the coverage to ride in a saddle. pretty cool!
many of the current styles of culottes come with a higher cut waist which is perfect for utilizing all of those crop tops out this season! below are some of our favorites we’ve found from around the web! they are surprisingly flattering because they show off the ankle bone and pair well with variety of shoes. we’re most fond of them paired with an open toe, minimal strapped shoe which makes the look very clean and modern.

some of our other favorite fashion posts: the waist tie, duster coats, and pretty pleats!
it looks like fashion is moving away from the boxier styles…which is good news for most of us. the waist tie trend is more flattering for all sorts of body types. it also means we get to achieve the layered look, without actually having to layer. not only is the 90’s waist tie back (think plaid shirt around the waist) but now there are many more refined items available that include built in ties and add a lot of visual interest to a basic look. we are into it!
shop these: blue skirt, romper, tie waist dress, daisy skirt
shop these: pink waist tie pants, silver waist tie pants, tie waist dress
box pleat, knife pleat, inverted pleat, we’ll take them all! we’re seriously feeling all the pleats we’re seeing around town these days. chic, modern and sophisticated they’re showing up in jackets, skirts and dresses. they styles we’re digging today are ladylike, printed and even glamourous. we love how often they are paired with flat sandals or a pair of sneakers, such a good summer travel option when you don’t want to stick out like a tourist and want to pair a fashionable outfit with a comfortable shoe for walking.

it’s sandal season and as per usual there are so many cute options for the summer months. i’m a big fan of the slide which is showing up everywhere, i love the minimal line of the one strap and also the fact that they come in so many pretty colors, feels very retro cool. i picked up a pair of pom pom flip flops on my trip to Columbia that i’ve been wearing a lot. although, you can’t purchase the same ones i have i did find a cute option from zara that’s similar in style. listed some of my other favorite styles below
