Unusual Length

Lengthwise, let’s just say that it’s a little awkward.

Colourwise, yes.

Lengthwise, let’s just say that it’s a little awkward.

I wasn’t quite expecting the hem to fall right smack in the middle of my calves.

I had no idea how to make the culottes look more flattering but I kept them on anyway as I was experiencing withdrawal symptoms from my shopping ban. It’s currently classified as work in progress until I find the best way to rock them.

All hope is not lost (yet) as spring and summer is quickly approaching. Hopefully pairing them with beautiful sandals (lace-up maybe?) would be an effective remedy to what I would call an unusual length in the world of fashion.

 Frustrated with not knowing where to take the husband (who's not Malaysian) when we're back in my hometown Kuala Lumpur πŸ€”, I created a guide called "The KL Travel Guide for Locals" for those who share the same frustration! πŸ€“ #ontheblog at WLLWPROJECT.COM #linkinprofile . . . . . #wllwproject #travel #travelguide #adventure #tropics #kualalumpur #merchantslane #lush #streetstyle #green #nostalgia #tb #stripes #portrait #asia #ηΎŽηœŸζž— #vsco #vscocam #vscogood #bymrm  While in Melbourne a few months ago...

  1. I don’t know if culottes are for adults. I don’t know if I’m qualified to make that call. I would say either let the hem out some or shorten them to about 3″ below the knee?

    1. Hey Brandy thanks for your suggestion πŸ™‚ I think I would be more comfortable letting the hem out (I think that would look a little more flattering) and would probably do so once I completed my 2 beginners sewing workshop! πŸ™‚

    1. Hi Maria, I’m leaning towards letting the hem out but who knows, I might grow to like that length after awhile… πŸ˜‰
