How to Wear Culottes

Many people have expressed some hesitation about the culottes trend, and I don’t blame you!  I, too, gave this trend the side eye for quite some time before giving them a go.  One thing I made sure of when designing the Winslows, is that they really flatter the figure.  This makes them fun to wear and easy to style!  I love wearing mine with a top tucked in to the high waist, emphasizing my hourglass figure.   Check out my full round-up of testers for tons of inspiration, you can see just how versatile they can be!

Here are some examples of Winslow outfits, so you can try out some different looks.  I am really excited about the fall and winter styling possibilities, and I’ve already purchased some lightweight wools in bright coral and gingham to make winter Winslows with!  I cant wait to wear them with my rain boots and tights 🙂
