If you follow me on snapchat (@juliengarman) or know me IRL, you’ll know I wear these pants A LOT. Like, once-a-week a lot. They’re most definitely my husband’s least favorite pants I wear, but they might just be my favorites. Here’s why:
They’re so easy to style
Since buying these a few months ago, I’ve styled them SO MANY different ways. In the Fall, I’ve been wearing them with a casual blazer and tee for happy hour, this silk button-up from Equipment with my M.Gemi pumps for work, and with a simple black cashmere turtleneck and loafers when I’m feeling all french. I was so hesitant to buy these because I thought they might be too crazy to style, but they turned out to be crazy awesome.
They make a statement
Whenever I have a meeting with a brand or potential client, these pants usually follow suit. They exude confidence and I honestly feel like a total BA ever time I slip them on. They’re trendy but classic at the same time.
They’re a great ice breaker
It’s so funny how these pants are such a conversation starter. I mean, how can you NOT comment on these? Whether I’m in the elevator or running into someone in the office, people are actually drawn to them! They’ll start off, “Oh I love your pants,” and I’m all, “haha thanks, they’re my crazy pants.” We laugh, go our separate ways. It’s all about making that connection with someone.
Culottes = heaven. They’re wide enough to let a little air in on a humid day (RIP SUMMER) but long enough to keep most of your legs covered. They’re high waisted too, cinching at the smallest part of your waist and allowing for all the flatter.
So there you have it! If that doesn’t convince you to give them a try, I’d recommend using Lyon + Post to try on a pair for yourself! That’s how I found these! It’s free to use, you try 4 pieces at a time and you even get to pick your own pieces. And they price match! You can use my personal invite to get $30 off your first purchase too! ;)
