We’re loving Mollie King‘s laid-back evening look from last night. The Saturdays singer headed out in London in a simple white tee and classic courts, but her statement culottes had us crushing.
The ’70s-inspired trend has been going strong since summer, and it shows no sign of abating for autumn.
And right now, culottes are sweeping the high street, and they’re a seriously hard-working wardrobe staple.
Try dressing them down for day with a fine knit and brogues or go glam by evening and pair them with chunky heels and an A-line top.
For the office, channel VB by wearing with a high-neck tank top layered over a shirt – and don’t forget your heels.
If you’re worried about the breezy fit making you look swamped, just remember to make your waist the focal point – stick to structured tops, tuck in a fine knit or belt them to accentuate your proportions.
When it comes to shoes, stick to ankle-flashing styles or leg-lengthening heels to ensure your pins look long and lean.
In terms of picking the perfect pair, go for a sleek satin like Mollie for smarter vibes or try a leather for a tougher feel.
Or if you want to make a statement then a printed pair are the way to go – we love Topshop’s Bambi print version. Shop our top pick below.
