Hedi Slimane has been a proponent of the menswear staple since FW ’19, and it’s no wonder – culottes are super comfortable, versatile and a fashion-forward way to do power dressing.
"The Prince of Wales check culottes in wool is $1,350. Go for full bourgeois Left Bank chic with a matching blazer and pussy-bow blouse."
It’s time to swop out your favourite pants for a pair of comfortable culottes that allows greater ease of movement. Culottes + boots + blazer is a fashion-forward formula that’s hard to beat. But if you’re wearing culottes in Singapore’s balmy weather, be realistic and forget the boots. Instead, pair it with pumps or thonged heels for a contemporary look.
Short suits are still trending and totally office appropriate: Simply dress it up with a high collared blouse and throw on a vest with a nipped waist. After work, just add pearl and croco accessories and you’re all set for a night out. For weekends, ditch the formal tops for a graphic tee and play with arty accessories, but keep the tailored blazer to look like a boss. – DEBBY KWONG
