Wide-leg pants are definitely my go-to this summer. I’ve worn them before, of course, but this year the stores are really saturated with them, making it that much easier to choose (or harder, if you’re plagued by indecision like me.) That said, these pants are actually custom-made by a tailor. I went with my mom to the fabric market back in April and bought a bunch of fabrics for my new summer wardrobe. The shirtdress I wore a couple of weeks ago was one of the items I got made from those fabrics, and these pants/culottes are another. Normally I don’t get pants custom-made because they’re easy to find (unlike dresses), but this pattern is just too cool to pass up.
It’s not until I put up these photos that I realized this outfit was essentially a more casual take on another outfit I wore last month. The colors are the same – I just swapped the blouse for a T-shirt and the pumps for a pair of flats. I actually much prefer this outfit. The T-shirt is more fitted so it balances out the relaxed silhouette of the pants, and the flats look more proportionate with these pants than the pumps too. And this was just something I literally threw on for running errands, as opposed to an outfit that I agonize over. It just goes to show, when it comes to style, sometimes instinct works better.
