I also conquered my fear of culottes/gaucho pants, after trying on a pair. I find them a nice alternative to a skirt. Just add a dressy blouse and heels. I also ran across a great pair of wide-leg palazzo pants. And I do mean wide....but I like them that way. I had to leave them though, see more below.
|Soho Soft Jogger Jean - Destroyed Accent, $64.95 (buy 1 get 1 50% off)|
|Pearl Double-Finger Ring, $6.88|
This was a great little clearance purchase. it looks good on.
|7th Avenue Gaucho Pant, $29.97 (also in gray)|
These fit very nicely. Those that I purchased are wider in the leg, and blur the line between gaucho and skirt.
