This season's trickiest fashion heavy hitter has to be the fanciful culotte, unashamedly hard to master even for the seasoned street-style aficionado, conquering the A line pant can make dressing for the office even more of a wardrobe coup.
An elegant mainstay that can be paired with beautiful basics time and time again, the culotte may be seeing a fast-fashion second coming, but I'm making sure its here to stay. Investing in a pair of well tailored workable trousers will make dressing for the busy woman-about-town child's play.
High volume and high sex appeal, these mid-waisted pants hide a multitude of sins whilst giving you a clean, flattering silhouette. Say adieu to post-baby Spanx and unflattering smocks, return to body confidence thanks to their curve-giving shape and forgiving front pleats.
A statement piece dressed up for tough talking meetings or unforgettable entrances, this impactful style staple needs little accessorising. An uncomplicated touch of gold or an accent of precious stones is bling enough, punctuate your look with a simple cuff or casual ring for a hint of elegance.
Team pleated culottes with the crisp Bettie shirt in white to accentuate a bold, smooth outline. Complimented with some killer Miu Miu platforms and a retro boxy shoulder bag, your look will scream powerhouse in the boardroom.
Finished with a subtle undertone of feminine glamour, keep your skin Clarins squeaky clean with a morning ritual of tonic and toner, a dab of YSL 'Touche Eclat' and a lick of MAC gloss for good measure.
