When I think about gaucho pants (or better known now as culottes), I think about that scene from 'Never Been Kissed' where David Arquette asks Drew Barry Moore if she's wearing pants or a skirt and she replies, "they're gaucho pants - I got them on sale"! I remember watching that scene thinking, "I would never be caught dead in those" and here I am today blogging about how to wear gaucho pants.
I was on the fence as to whether or not I should take the plunge and try them out but when I got them, I was so happy I did! I find gaucho pants very flattering (especially for the rear-end) and very chic. They really elevate the overall look of your outfit and provide a sense of class and sophistication.
I paired mine with this one-of-a-kind silk cropped top by Jacoba Jane. The soft periwinkle blue complimented the crisp white sheen of the top. I could also see myself tucking a top into the pants or wearing a more fitted cropped top.
Do you have enough gusto to style gaucho pants? How would you style them?
