Styling Printed Culottes

Tall Girl's Fashion / Styling culottes with a peplum top

These palmprint culottes from H&M received a lot of attention in my Instagram account and I think I know why: The print is fun and summery, and makes us want to sip a cool drink in a funky art deco bar amongst the stylish jetset. I’m thinking Palm Springs, Miami Beach or St. Tropez.

Other great things about these trousers are that they cost next to nothing (Nok 249), are still available at H&M, have an elasticated waist and don’t need any ironing. To top that off, everybody looks great in culottes — they are already short, so us tall girls don’t have to struggle with the length and they look great when they fit longer on shorter women. Yes, the perfect pair of summer trousers, if you ask me!

While I won’t be hanging out with the jetset anytime soon, I can still funk up my neighbourhood. Previously when I’ve worn these trousers, I’ve always paired them with a white top. This is a very pretty look, but for the final day of Moteuka (Oslo Fashion Week) I thought I’d be a more daring and pair them with a strong colour, to make the print really pop. I chose this purple peplum top (I dare you to say that fast four times!) and orange sandals. Yes, why go halfway when every garments in the outfit can be bright and cheerful?!? Geniusly, the peplum also hides the elastics on the trousers and makes my tummy appear as flat as Denmark.

    • Thanks, Sandy. They are really, really comfortable and sometimes I catch myself wearing them like sweats, which can only be a good thing. xoxo Anett
