Gap pleated culottes, Zara cropped sweater (similar here), Target sandals (old; similar here, here and here), Gap leather drawstring bucket bag

Ok so one trend I think the world is clearly divided on is the emergence of culottes. I honestly wasn't a fan at first. The trend reminded me a little too much of gouchos which I despised in college. Slowly the trend has grown on me for one reason, I can have a skirt look without all the responsibility. I feel like I'm sneaking and wearing shorts to work because everyone thinks I'm wearing a full skirt. These gap pair are linen but I think a crepe or silk pair would be better for work. 

Sound off: Would you wear culottes to work? Do you hate them? lol
