Well you know that bridal styling is my thing...right? There is a resurgence of an old style trend that I think would be absolutely adorable for a afternoon Spring/Summer garden wedding. Culottes!! Now hear me out, Culottes were typically worn in the Victorian Era when women would go horseback riding because it very difficult to be lady-like and straddle a horse in a skirt. Culottes is actually described as a "riding split skirt". I rocked culottes probably 8-10 years ago when they made a come back into the fashion scene. However if you have visited any major department store or specialty store in the last several weeks, culottes are definitely making a comeback for the Spring & Summer.
How to make them work for an afternoon wedding? With today's style of culotte jumpers it would be easy to incorporate this style trend into your bridesmaid wedding attire. I would suggest it for an afternoon or garden wedding. This look could easily be accessorized with statement jewelry & also a pashmina to cover the arms for chilly evenings. What's even better is the fact that your bridesmaids will be comfortable & confident because truthfully its appears like they are rocking a midi skirt until they walk and you can see the split. Win, Win!
Here is an example of a culottes jumper that I would recommend for a lower style budget wedding. However if this is a style that you like, it would be simple to recreate this look with a more quality fabric + an amazing seamstreess for a luxury budget wedding as well!
Would you consider this as an option for your bridesmaids? I personally love this look & would love to hear your thoughts!
