Usually wide, cropped culottes paired with leg-cutting ankle boots and a boxy, flared tank would not be my first suggestion for a petite gal like myself. The whole outfit has the potential to slice my body into awkward sections and flare out in the least flattering places...but somehow...it works. In the spirit of Leandra Medine and her Man Repelling style, I decided I would try a look I typically would never go for, and it paid off. I'm currently loving these trendy culottes, and paired with everyday booties (with a good heel, because I'm still petite), they can become a casual staple. This fun flared crop top from Elliatt brings a fresh, new angle to culottes.
