Culottes have been up and coming for the past few seasons, but I swore it was a trend I would never understand and certainly never wear. During my recent trip to Paris, I saw all the Parisian and European women wearing them. And they all looked amazing. For a lot of reasons, my Europe trip influenced and sparked a change in my style for the better, and my new crush on culottes is one of these changes.

I love that culottes are a multi-seasonal piece, depending on the fabric, print and color, of course. While I was in Paris, I bought a pair of black and white striped culottes from Zara that I simply adore. On a warm Parisian night, I paired them with a black ribbed mock turtleneck tank top, but these can also be paired with a cropped sweater or tight long sleeve top tucked in. I also love the idea of layering my black mock turtleneck with a bulky denim jacket or black leather moto jacket for some dimension.
