Culottes is unknown territory for me.  I didn't expect to have quickly gained so much love for such an confusing trend. The story was I had a meeting with a new client last week, in a creative environment.  I wanted to show my creativity through my outfits but to still look professional.  I immediately knew I needed a couture-inspired outfit.  What would better represent "couture" than "culottes"?  Culottes are often seen on the streets of Paris and Milan Fashion Week where French women show off their impeccable fashion in their trench coats, wide leg pants, and of course statement accessories.

For the meeting, I paired my culottes with a crisp white shirt for a polished look and added an extra oomph with a statement necklace.  For dinner, I went for a relaxed vibe with a loose fit sweater and added more colors and patterns that complimented each other.  And of course pointy pumps were for the win.
