The safest option for recent days in London where the sun will tease us, the rain will bless us, and the wind makes its usual appearance all within the space of 24 hours is to settle with halfway there outfits. For me, a commute is always a certain part of my day and I leave my home dressed for comfort and practicality whilst still keeping it on trend, in season and appropriately transitioned for all climates.
Every Spring and Summer culottes force their way into our wardrobes despite not being to everyone’s taste; for the indisputable fact that they provide enough coverage needed for a modest attitude to embracing the good weather, yet exposing just enough skin to hail the true forecast of the season without going the extra mile.
I adjusted the brightness on my colour palette and opted for light and airy neutrals to reflect the comfort of what I was wearing. For a quaint day walking around one of my favourite museums, I felt in my element, and as you can evidently see in these photographs, I fit in perfectly with my surroundings with an understated outfit that I know will have encouraged others to think twice before picking out a standard pair of trousers to wear from seeing how effortlessly chic culottes can actually make you look.
