Skirts and dresses were always my go-to for the office, and it even became a running joke amongst colleagues that I didn’t own a pair of trousers. This was about five years ago before I began experimenting with my wardrobe.
I spoke about this briefly in my previous post, about how I would always stick to what I knew and liked at the time. Due to a bad experience one time trying on a pair of trousers, I decided trousers weren’t for me. After that experience, I ruled them out completely. Fast forward a few years and they are almost overtaking the skirts and dresses in my wardrobe. I can’t get enough of them!!
Don’t get me wrong, I still know which styles to avoid so I don’t have any breakdowns in the changing room. But I’ve also found so many lovely styles that are my new go-to’s. My no1 favourite is a high waisted cropped culotte. I have a longer body and short legs so I find the cropped style really elongates my figure, especially when worn with heels!
I snapped up these black culottes a few weeks ago and loved them so much I immediately ordered them in white too. I’ve linked them both below – along with all the other colour options they come in too. I’m so tempted by the red pair!
SHOP THE CULOTTES
I’ve also put together some more of my must-have trousers for the office, including the 4 styles I’ve featured below, which you can shop by clicking here. I’m completely and utterly obsessed with the black and white checked pair and need them in my life immediately!!
They tick all of the boxes for me – high waisted, cropped, and they also feature a subtle but cute flare at the bottom that is really flattering.
