Cool, Calm and Collected

Recently, I bought a pair of cropped culottes, despite the fact that I am 5ft and they aren't so cropped on me - I think I managed to pull an outfit together that actually looks blog-worthy! I'm a self confessed fashion noob so I am pretty chuffed with how this outfit looked.

These light grey culottes are so airy and almost as comfortable as pyjama bottoms. They seem to be quite flattering too, despite the loose fitting. I like how it ties at the waist so I can adjust it tighter (or looser if I've eaten too much at dinner!).

I decided to wear it with a simple fitted maroon tee as it makes it a bit more autumnal and steers away from a typical monochrome look. It's the 'pop of colour' to this outfit. I also layered it with my trusty leather jacket because it gets quite chilly in the evenings nowadays so I know I can easily throw this on and it still looks great.

For this particular evening, I went for some stiletto heels because the trousers can look quite masculine and the heels add a bit of femininity. I like how casual the outfit is and it can instantly be dressed up with some simple heels. The grey suede bag also compliments the overall look and matches the grey-ish theme.

In my opinion, this is understated yet sophisticated and can also be paired with trainers to make it more day time appropriate or if you just wanted to be comfy. What's your cool, calm and collected outfit?
