OOTD: Culotte It Out

This season, culottes have become my must-have item for Summer. They are so comfortable, easy to dress up or down and this bargain pair from Primark have become a key item in my holiday wardrobe. They’re my favourite travel wardrobe essential so I wanted to share some snaps from a day exploring Palma.





Culottes: Primark. Vest: Primark. Sunglasses: Primark. Hat: Primark. Bag: Bon Prix* Necklace: Bon Prix*

Well, this is a rather Primark heavy look again – Summer is definitely the time of year for fast fashion and trying new styles for less! These culottes were a total bargain and, impressively, a great length on my short frame. I love the floral pattern, which are really easy to style but not plain and boring, although I’m now looking for a plain black pair as I think they could be the perfect addition to my work wardrobe.

I kept the rest of the outfit simple with a plain vest top, and my favourite floppy hat and gold sandals. The sunglasses were just £1 from the Primark Men’s section and they remind me of the Quay Australia brand, so I think they were a great find! They match perfectly with my beaded necklace from Bon Prix too, a lovely new accessory I picked up at the Bloggers’ Ball. I’m terrible at remembering to wear jewellery whilst on holiday but I’ve built up my collection of colourful necklaces to throw on with any Summer outfits.

These culottes have headed straight into my suitcase to explore Sorrento this week and they are perfect for looking stylish yet practical whilst travelling, especially when catching a flight. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by my love of culottes this season; they look like a tricky item to style but have slotted seamlessly into my wardrobe. What’s your surprise Summer style find?
