Maximizing the cool weather we’ve been having in Manila lately with a rust (or burnt orange?) sweater and navy culottes from Mango’s latest collection. Once March arrives, I know a lot of stores will slowly start appealing more to the beach-going, summer-loving crowd, but as long as that hasn’t happened yet, I’m going to milk my fall-winter love for all its worth.
Finding the perfect pair of culottes was frustrating, to be honest. When you have a short torso with an oddly-placed belly button (why is it so high?!), you’ll definitely have your own fair share of hopping from one store to another, trying to find the best-fitting pair that won’t overwhelm your body type. So far, this pair from Mango was the best one I could find. I actually tried very hard not to blindly follow the culottes trend in the last couple of months, but I can’t help it when the silhouette reminds me so much of Japanese hakama. But like, a more wearable version, yes?
