One of the trends that has made a major comeback is the culottes and palazzo pants trend.  And as an advocate for modest and slightly less fitted clothes, of course I have fully embraced and jumped on the culottes and flared pants trend.

Today I collaborated with Khadijah of Dimple Khadi to guide you guys on how to rock your culottes and flared trousers.

 While she went for a pair of flared trousers, I opted for my printed culottes previously styled in a coordinate set here.  I paired it with my striped top to go for a mix of prints.  As mentioned in my guide on how to mix prints, stripes are the easiest print to work with. I also incorporated the choker trend by converting my old bra strap into one (talk about DIY).

As mentioned in my post on dressing for your body type, a way to appear smaller is to wear slightly bigger clothes.  Now when it comes to wearing less fitted clothes like culottes and flared trousers,  stucture is key.  Notice how we both tucked in our tops, well this helps in creating balance and giving structure to the look.  Also, I added a belt to better cinch in my waist, hence creating an appearance of a curvier figure.  Do not underestimate the power of a good statement belt.

Khadija who is from Nigeria is a medical student in Ukraine, I love her awesome conservative style and her way with head wraps.

  3. Bra strap??? Mehn y'all are DIY Queens! Love the mix of print and color pop with pink. Khadeejah is so pretty! I guess the front to back shirt thing is trending, I don't think I'd get into it though but it looks super cool.
