I’ve been wanting to get a striped culottes for a while now. For some reason, I never made the purchase. So when I spotted these culottes at Banana Republic and I had the opportunity to get them, I picked them up so quickly! I instantly fell in love with the black & white vertical stripes with it’s paper bag-waist style. Everything about it is so classic yet chic & fashion forward. These pants definitely make a statement. All you need is simple top.
There are so many different ways I wanted to style these pants. I would exchange the strappy heels to a slingback heels in the Fall or have a little fun with top with this bell-sleeve lace top or a blush tie-neck blouse. The pants may be bold, but the options are endless!
I also think wearing these pants/culottes would be perfect if you are trying to spruce up your workwear wardrobe. They are work appropriate with a lot of flare and style. Pretty much you would be the chicest girl in the office. However, I think they are also great for a night out with the girls or date night with your man. I plan on wearing them to all 3 of those scenarios. I seriously love them! They fit so perfectly! Like I said above, the options are endless.

Thank you Ann-Marie!
I've seen you rock a lot of bottom half stripes lately and I am just tickled to day "Damn Rach, back at it again with the stripe pants." Oh man, I hope you thought that was a little bit humorous and "got" my little joke. (; Never the less, these looks suit you. They are timeless, classic and look so fresh. Keep them coming!
Haha yes I got your joke! I'm glad you like my stripe pants. I just love them. A lot has to do with how awesome BR is with their collection. I barely had to do much to style their stuff!
I am so crazy for culottes and these are FABULOUS!! I love everything about 'em!! Cutest look lady!
