Welcome to the “Transitioning Trends” Series. Whether Winter likes it or not, Spring is coming. I don’t know about you but I’m so ready to pack up my sweater arsenal and pull out all my favorite good weather fabrics – chiffons, cottons, and silks. Lately I’ve been shopping for items that would be great transition styles because who doesn’t love more bang for their buck? In my new series – Transitioning Trends – I show you how I’ve taken trendy pieces from winter to spring with just a few changes!
This week on Transitioning Trends we’re talking about culottes. I’ve been on the fence about this trend for a while. For one it brings me back to my middle school days where all the girls wore the much less fashionable synthetic stretchy version. For another, I’m 5’3 and unfortunately the fashion world has yet to acknowledge people of my size.
When I saw this pair on the Shop Rollick site, I was already envisioning the winter to spring to SUMMER transition and felt like it was a definite must. They’re so comfortable that they basically feel like PJs, and the bow in the front elevates the look.
Later this week I’ll be showing you how I dressed them up for spring. But for now, let’s talk winter.
I paired a chunky mockneck sweater with some booties. I partially tucked in the sweater to show off the bow detail. The gold dangle earrings tie into the gold detailing on the booties. Lastly, I went with this vintage suede clutch that in my opinion pulled everything together. If it were even colder, I’d probably throw on a coat over the sweater with a hat and gloves. I just loved how there was a juxtaposition of fabrics – the thick wool sweater and the breezy cotton pants.
