WIW : Denim Look Culottes

Hi Fab Ones,

I bought these culottes a few weeks ago and today is the first outing for them.

I love culottes and these are my third pair.  I have black winter, black summer and these which are pretty transeasonal.

They look like denim but are a lovely weight jersey, so they swish and flow beautifully when you move.

It was especially nice today when DH, who hadn't seen them before, unsolicited, told me he really liked them :)

Wearing them with a chiffon blouse (sheer sleeves) tucked at the front.

Any comments or suggestions for styling much appreciated.

Thanks for looking
xxx Deborah

    I love these! The blue is so vivid and dramatic against the black and your fair coloring. Love the little pops of red in you lip and nail color.

    Ooh these are lovely, the whole outfit sings and that blue is a great color on you.

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Thank you LBD:  It is a cool colour :)

    Thanks rabbit, and it's lovely to have you back on the forum:)  I have been missing your gorgeous outfits.

    The culottes are a gorgeous colour and look lovely on you.  I love the bracelet that you have on.  It looks like leather.

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Thanks Style Fan:). Yes it is leather. It's a long strap that wraps around and then fastens in a small buckle:). I love it and wear it most days x

    Deborah, you are doing an incredible job of adding color to your style. I'm not sure I have witnessed such a clear style evolution (probably because your palette was so limited before) and I am finding it so fascinating. You know yourself so well and even when you extend in a new direction it is in a cohesive and thoughtful way. I love this silhouette on you, and the intensity of this gorgeous blue adds a vividness to your usual drama. Love it!

  • Deborah replied 8 years ago

    Viva thank you so much! I so appreciate your thoughtful comments. I am reasonably clear in my mind on what I want to add and where I'm not prepared to go:). The denim blue to me is a neutral and it's a solid so I feel it's still true to my aesthetic. This may sound funny, but I'm feeling led toward what I consider (for me) is a more grown up style. I'm liking the sound of modern sophistication. I may need to review my style moniker/style rubric. I'm greatly encouraged xx

    Wow, texture is so rich  and acting really like a pattern-adding interest-

    and it is  a great color on you!

    You come up with amazing outfits every single time. Either and black or when you add color you always keep your aesthetic sense.

  • Janet replied 8 years ago

    Really beautiful. Like Vivian, I have noticed your broadening color palette and really think you're doing a fantastic job of incorporating these new colors in way that feels totally organic. I love how cohesive your style is!

    And you KNEW I would. 

  • Lyn D. replied 8 years ago

    That is indeed special when DH comments!
    I am sure that they do generally notice and appreciate our outfits, but it has to be a real love when they articulate it :)

    DH should be sweeping you off to a tropical island for a romantic retreat in that outfit!  Vaaavavoom!

  • replied 8 years ago

    Sooo, fab and elegant!

  • TraceyLiz65 replied 8 years ago

    Anything that illicits a genuine compliment from DH is fabulous! Add that to your description of having swish and flow that moves beautifully is divine!
