Style Sunday: Culottes


Culottes have been gaining momentum as a trend — and it’s not surprising.

Clothing that isn’t form-fitting has been all the rage lately. Culottes are just following the path the fashion world is set on.

Culottes are past knee-length trousers cut to be breathable and skirt-like. They are versatile and can be worn in various situations. The long length and skirt-like appearance can make them appropriate for more conservative occasions.

On the other hand, the flowiness makes culottes perfect for a casual day out. It all depends on how they’re styled. What is worn with the culottes really sets the tone for the outfit.

In this particular instance, my outfit is leaning towards the more casual side. The holey crochet top and choker gives the look a more low-key feeling. Contrasting textures of the crochet, velvet heels and the culotte pants add dimension to the outfit, while the wine color of the culottes adds a splash of color to the outfit. This shade of burgundy has a calm, feminine feel to it.

Paired with equally tranquil colors, all the pieces of the ensemble work together perfectly.

Styling culottes is pretty simple. It is all about experimentation because they can work with a lot of things. I prefer to tuck in my shirt, but there are a lot of situations where tucking in may not work.

At the end of the day, fashion is about how you carry yourself. If you walk around with confidence in your look, your outfit will always work.Read more at:short prom dresses | long prom dresses

Olivia Culpo Signs on as DSW’s First Style Ambassador

Former Miss USA and budding actress Olivia Culpo, who has also branded herself as a social media style star, has signed on as DSW’s first style ambassador.

Culpo, who has 1.7 million Instagram followers, will connect her fan base with the shoe retailer’s 24 million-plus rewards members as she curates monthly collections, the first of which goes live today, for its web site and digital platforms.

“I love accessible fashion, and I’ll be able to curate my favorite trends and translate those looks to my following and DSW’s following every month,” said Culpo.

“I feel that’s an important part of my brand, too. I have the privilege of being someone people look to for fashion advice, but I grew up a normal girl and never could have afforded those dream outfits. To be able to work with brands that create on-trend looks is important to me. You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to get a beautiful outfit.”

Of amassing her following, she said, “It’s been a really interesting journey for me. It’s not so much how many people, but the fact that they are following me because I’m helpful, that’s the most rewarding part.”

Culpo said communicating about fashion to her fans “didn’t come completely naturally to me. You always have people telling you that’s not right, but what I’ve realized with fashion is there is no right or wrong, it’s just about having fun and expressing yourself.”

For her first monthly selection, she chose five basics: an Adidas sneaker, a high-heel sandal, a bootie, a pointed-toe flat and an ath-leisure slide.

“I’m pretty classic, so I want to choose pieces a girl can wear over and over not just this one month,” she said.

Culpo will do videos, e-mail blasts, events and personal appearances on behalf of DSW throughout the year.Read more at:celebrity dresses

Katy Perry launches shoewear line at Coachella

Katy Perry introduced her new footwear line at an Easter brunch event during the Coachella festival on Sunday (16Apr17).

The star of the show posed for the paparazzi while standing inside a massive version of one of her high-heeled red, black and white shoes. The Firework hitmaker wore an all-white shorts, tank top and fishnet cover-up outfit with her feet sporting the new line's bunny motif flats, designed as a tribute to a beloved pair she found in a charity shop 15 years ago.

She called the event a Recovery Brunch and tried out the assorted stations aimed at helping guests recover from the wild weekend's excesses. There was a make-your-own Bloody Mary station, an oxygen bar, and a Juicero stand, where guests could load up on organic cold-press juices. Fried chicken and waffles were also on the menu with vegan alternatives available too.

Katy announced the Katy Perry Footwear Line last year and initially hoped for a January (17) launch for the spring collection. "I have a two-car garage full of shoes and my dream is to bring personality shoes to the marketplace at an affordable price for women (ages) 16 to 40 or beyond," she told Women's Wear Daily last September (16).

She planned a collection of 60 styles inspired in part by her global travels.

The collection's price point is important to Perry, as she shared with the fashion bible last year.

"I am always conscious of my audience," she noted. "At my shows, I could jack up the ticket price for my peers, but I always have a price range available for that person who's always been my fan."

Her own fairly poor upbringing is never far from her thoughts.

"I didn't grow up with any money and I was always getting by by the skin of my teeth, so affordable is just ingrained in me."Read more at:prom dress
