The Look: The New Glamour

 
Gone are the days where the ball gown is the epitome of elegance, it's time to embrace the new work-play staple: The culotte. Add a pair of classic drop earrings and you're ready to go!

I've been coveting culottes for a while now. I finally managed to get my hands on this timeless black pair and I was pleasantly surprised at how flattering they are. Pair shape girls: take not! Culottes add movement to your lower half in a slimming manner.

Being the perfect work to play basic, I decided to give them a good old glam-up. I added this stunning off-the-shoulder lace top.

And what is a glamorous look without a pair of statement, yet classic earrings? I received these stunning antique pearl earrings from Pearl and Clasp. They offer an array of stunning freshwater pearl earrings and also offer pearl re-stringing for those vintage beauties that you want to bring back to life. With cubic zirconia and genuine pearls, these earrings reminded me of something Marilyn Monroe or Jacqueline Kennedy would have in their satin-lined jewellery boxes.

This is glamor 2.0, for the woman who works hard and plays hard.

  33. I think culottes look amazing on you, it's a trend I have loved for a while but been too afraid to wear, I did buy a white culotte jumpsuit which I haven't worn yet though. I adore the neckerchief styling and those elegant earrings too looks very sleek xxx

The earrings, like you said, add glamour to the look and pairing the culottes with a lace top was like the icing on a cake:-) All the pictures are fabulous! Take care! XOXO, Jeannette

  52. You styled your culottes indeed perfect and I can imagine that you were with this look again the star at work! Personally I like culottes as I have with wearing them all the advantages of pants but although they look more like a skirt :) Further culottes for me are really sign of style! Happy weekend <3
