Cool in Culottes


As hard as I try not to be, I am a sucker for trends. Unfortunately, that usually means whatever I buy ends up in the Goodwill pile by the end of the season, leaving me ashamed, guilt-ridden and broke. However, the trends of this summer have been refreshingly versatile, and I've already found that even my most trendy purchases are transitioning into my fall wardrobe flawlessly. But though all the pieces I bought this summer were fun, there is one that is absolutely perfect for the approaching cooler weather: the culottes. These pants have taken on many different names, but can really be described in just one word: fabulous. Not only do they fit right in with the normcore fad of the moment, they can also be downright elegant, chic, sophisticated and ridiculously comfy. And let's be real here people - with the fall holidays (that are largely centered around food, might I add) quickly approaching, we're all going to need some looser pants.

Wear it into Fall

Early fall is one of my favorite times of the year for fashion.  Everyone is so excited to try out the new styles for fall but the weather is still comfortable enough to mix and match with your favorite summer staples, basically the best of both worlds.  There's nothing better than a cozy fall outfit without all the itch and static that winter layers and weather bring.  This week we start debuting all our fall clothing here at Street Scene and even though the weather is still quite toasty, there's so many ways to go ahead and incorporate fall fashions into your wardrobe.  Before you pack up your entire summer wardrobe, take a look at some of the outfit photos below for plenty of inspiration on how to style up some summer staples for fall:
