I must confess, as a petite gal I have always been afraid to wear culottes. The thought of myself in culottes would automatically remind me of a Willie Wonka, Umpa Lumpa character. Culottes to me are a cross between capris and flare leg pants. Put a flare leg capri on a petite girl, and it just might swallow her up!
Anyway, I went out on a limb and purchased this hot culotte jumpsuit. There we go, 2 trends in 1, jumpsuit and culottes! I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with how this look turned out.
Because this jumpsuit has a fitted waistline, the flared leg pant was a great balance. The length was just right. That is why… I have said it before and I will say it again, that being petite you must select the right cut of clothing or you could appear heavier than you are. And we don’t need that!
What do you think of the look? Are you brave enough to try culottes this season?!
