A new category will be added to my blog and it is “Style This”!
The idea came about when I thought about how I usually try not to match the individual items in the same way twice so that I would get more mileage for all my clothing pieces.
Every month, a piece of clothing would be picked for the featured “Style This” item and on every Monday in that month, I will be sharing one way of pairing. So at the end of that month, there will be 4 – 5, depending on the number of weeks in that month, different ways of wearing that one item and I also it is also a challenge myself to maximize the wear of any item in my exponentially growing wardrobe.
I would also love to hear from you if there is any item that you would like me to feature on Style This and hopefully be able to share and inspire each other in mixing and matching our clothing.
For October’s feature, I have chosen the culottes. White Culottes.
A huge trend seen in the Spring/ Summer 2014 collections and following through to Fall in deeper and earthier colours, this is a wardrobe staple that brings chic into your wardrobe and it is absolutely versatile.
At the London Fashion Week, culottes were a definite favourite amongst the fashion insiders. Ranging from chic to sporty and preppy, the looks created with culottes are so far and wide and it goes to show how versatile this item is.

The culottes that I am featuring is this white culottes from MDS collections. With its pleated front and heavy fabric, this pair of culottes flatters any wearer creating a long and lean silhouette.
I styled this outfit with the idea of clashing the prints between my top and outer wear.
Both items had Indonesian batik prints, the Bimba & Lola top had the traditional motif and colour mostly seen in the formal attire of elderly Indonesian man and women. The outer wear was a double side button down top which I bought from Yogyakarta at the middle of this year.
Quick side note: Yogyakarta was a fabric haven with all the busy prints and colours and I hope to be able to get down to sharing my trip to Indonesia with you. Wish me luck!
I wasn’t too sure about introducing another colour into the outfit for my footwear so I selected a pair of blue suede heels from Zara to complement the colours of the outer wear.
Thank you for dropping by & do return for the next installation of Style This next Monday!
