Over the past few months I have been trying to minimize my wardrobe and ensure that any new items of clothing that I buy are flexible and interchangeable. You can read more about my thoughts on this on my Minimalizing My Wardrobe post. 

One key item of clothing that I have picked up of late is these black, tailored culottes from Zara, which have become a wardrobe staple of mine. I think that this is a great transitional piece of clothing to carry me through spring and well into summer. 

I love the sophisticated ease of these trousers. They are true to size and have a very flattering fit. I love the style and feel as though they can be worn both casually and in a smart fashion. I teamed them with heeled pumps, a blazer and a cropped tee as a classy look for the #BlogConLDN event I attended a few weeks ago. Yet I also took them to Prague with me and wore vans and a cotton bomber for a much more casual look. 

I feel as though these culottes are a perfect springtime fashion item as they are thin and loose meaning that they are cool to wear in warmer weather. Yet they are of a suitable length that I feel covered up whilst my legs still maintain their Snow White winter glow. 

I really like that I am able to get away with wearing this type of fit. As I am on the petit side of the scale, I was worried that culottes would shrink my legs and make me appear even shorter. However, this cut seems to work somehow which I am so happy about. At just £19.99, these really are the perfect companion to take me through the rest of the season.
