The Striped Culottes I Can't Stop Wearing

Up until last week I was completely adamant that culottes didn't suit me. As a person who's 5"2, I'm sure I can speak for a lot of shorter women out there when I say that new trouser trends make me cower in fear. Tops and dresses I can work with, but if I'm not wearing my black or blue jeans that I've had for 2+ years because they fit me so well, then I'm uncomfortable. Despite this, I thought I would push myself on my latest shopping trip and I'm so glad I did! Myself and my housemates decided to take a trip up to Exeter before separating for the latter part of the summer, and low and behold my favourite shop was there waiting for me. Thank you to Zara for producing these comfy culottes that I now can't seem to be separated from. 

Here I have paired the culottes with a simple black short sleeved top and a green faux suede khaki jacket. They aren't colours I would usually pair together, but for an outfit I managed to throw together from odd bits and pieces out of a suitcase, I think it's fair to say I've done well. The shoes, however, are a work in progress (hence why they're not in the picture). 

What do you think of culottes? Own a pair? What shoes do you think will go best with this look? Let me know in the comments! You know I love to hear from you all :)
