Red Culottes

Styling red culottes
If you're one of my regular readers (I truly hope you're), you may know that last year I decided to step out of my comfort zone and buy some coloured trousers (here and here). I was amazed to see that I can rock bold hues on my bottom without making it look like a giant whale (no offence to whales). 

This year I went further and purchased red culottes. Although I'm no stranger to these hybrid trousers (I showed you a khaki pair here), if you told me earlier this year I'd wear their red version, I'd laugh out loud. Despite admiring them from a distance on other bloggers, I never thought I'd ever be able to pull bright culottes off.

However, when I spotted this red pair while browsing F&F website the other week, I decided to take the plunge and see if I can make red culottes work for me. I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised when I tried them on. 

What do you think of red culottes? Is there an item or a trend you thought you would never try but ended up loving it?
