Outfit of the Week: A Chic Sweater and Culottes

This past summer was the season of culottes, but just because the weather is cooling off doesn't mean you have to forsake them. If you already own the pants, take a cue from this outfit and recycle them into a fall-meets-holiday-ready ensemble. Because you can never have enough cozy sweaters, this dramatic off-the-shoulder style forms the foundation of the look. It shows off enough skin to be dressy but you can always pull it up high on your shoulders if you feel too cold. Paired with rich, textured culottes and minty, low heels, you could wear it out to a nice dinner or, as the holiday season gets into full swing, all of the inevitable parties.

And should you want to re-create this look, you can do it for way less. This ASOS sweater has the same silhouette while Missguided has a similar pair of burgundy culottes.
