So, culottes. They never fail to remind me of a rather nasty brown pair that constituted part of my Brownies uniform back in the day, but apparently they are 'back' (well, that's what Vogue tells me anyway). I can see the appeal of them - all the swishiness of a skirt, with the practicality of trousers. But despite what Vogue and Acne (who have featured quite a few pairs on the catwalk over the last few seasons) think, I just can't quite get my head round them - have you ever seen anyone looking cool in culottes? I don't think I have - and if the gorgeous model in this pic can't pull them off with her lengthy pins and waif-like figure, then I don't think it bodes well for me... If however, you do fancy taking a crack at this look, this pair by Acne will set you back £210, although Zara have a similar-ish pair for £29.99.
What do you think - awesome or awful?
