STYLE GURU STYLE: Culottes And Coco

When people look at my everyday style they have a hard time putting it into words. One day I am wearing jeans and my favorite oversized sweater and the next day I am wearing an edgy black dress paired with my favorite Urban Outfitters sherpa parka jacket. Even though my style is constantly changing I try to keep this Coco Chanel quote in mind. She once said, “A girl should be two things: classy and fabulous.” This idea is exactly what inspired my outfit for this article.

The spring ready-to-wear collections have now graced our laptops and I have been non stop scrolling. This season I have been very inspired by Ralph Lauren’s ready-to-wear spring collection. In his collection, Ralph Lauren decided to take on culottes and he succeeded. Many people think culottes are only a spring staple, I wanted to show culottes and cool weather can go together.

This idea may seem daring but it can be done. In this outfit, I chose to pair my culottes with an oversized black sweater turtleneck and of course a blue scarf for that pop of color and warmth the outfit needed. The wide leg of the culottes works perfectly with half boots and the tote bag of course, because a college girl needs to carry her books somehow.

Many people worry about their personal style, because they don’t want to deviate from the norm. Sometimes they feel more comfortable wearing the standard sweater and riding boots, because they don’t want to stick out. Even if you don’t want to be daring and step out in culottes and half boots, style is a way to express who you are and show how you feel. We all have a little Chanel in us and no matter what we choose to wear we should always be classy and fabulous.
