Who says you can’t wear culottes in winter?

I bought these Topshop culottes earlier this month and really didn’t want to wait for the warmer days which are ages away to wear them. I love the shine and the boxy shape of these but you can always get wooly ones to keep your legs warm or longer styles like these from Hugo or, if you dare, these shorter ones from Asos.

If you’re getting your legs out then you have to wrap up on top and a chunky wooly roll neck like this Ralph Lauren one is the way forward. I picked navy as I think it compliments the pastel pink well (great options from Jigsaw and Calvin Klein) and not as bold as a black but a grey would also fit.

Ankle boots and cute pop socks would be ideal if it was a bit colder or raining, but on a clear mild day these Miu Miu patent brogues with a diamante heels were perfect and added something special to the look. Brogues in general are perfect winter alternatives to ballet pumps and I found some nice ones from Marks & Spencer and Tory Burch. I finally added my pastel pink Prada bag which goes perfectly with this look (similar from River Island and DKNY) and a couple of bold rings.
