As someone who is a self-proclaimed arbiter of comfort and all that that entails, it really is amazing when I find a pair of (trendy) pants that feel as natural on the body as my favorite pair of boyfriend denim. Silk culottes are not, by nature, the most practical of bottoms, but by adding your favorite everyday basics, even the most evening inspired outfits can get some serious street cred.
This tee by Urban Outfitters is a new favorite (did I mention it’s $34?) and I am now a proud owner of tons of colors. The key to adding basics to a dressy piece, like these silk culottes, is to maintain shape within your body. By simply tucking in a shirt or wearing a more “cropped top” style with these looser bottoms, it cleans up the outfit and secures intentionality in your look.
