Bardot Top & Culottes

5:00 PM



Off-the shoulder tops or as I call it, the Bardot top, are all the rage this season. The first time I wore an off-the shoulder top, I was a little girl (my mom styled my sister and I when we were little, and I must say, her style was great). As I went through puberty, I avoided anything that showed off my skin because I felt so uncomfortable in them.

Last year, I purchased this top from Miss Selfridge. Even though I had no plan on wearing it that often, I knew it would be a statement piece that I'll be wearing in the upcoming years or so. And boy am I glad that I bought it! The off-the shoulder trend has came back and now I'm free to wear it without any quizzical eyes following me when I step out of the house. Although where I live, people would probably stare, which I find sooo annoying. This isn't my usual style, but what the heck, right?! It's a lil' bit edgy (thanks to the choker I'm wearing), and I love it. Wear whatever you want, the most important thing is if you feel comfortable wearing it and also feel like a badass while you're at it. :)

Because the top is cropped, I paired it with these culottes from Bershka. They had it in a black color, and I'm so gutted that I didn't purchase it in that color one too. The wear of it is comfortable, one thing I don't like about it is how tight it is around the crotch area. Maybe because I bought the wrong size? So yeah, it gives you a bit of a camel toe action (maybe just me though...). Currently thinking of how to conceal the camel toe action. Maybe with a pair of jacket? I don't know. Advice on this is much appreciated.


What I'm Wearing:

Bardot Top - Miss Selfridge (old)
Culotte - Bershka 
Bag - Rebecca Minkoff
Choker - Bangkok 
Shoes - Chiel

(Credits to my lovely mom, as always. ❤︎)

Much love, Ashley xx

  2. Ah maaaan this outfit is GORGEOUS on you and what a stunning location for a few picture?! I wish I had the balls to try out culottes...but for now I'm wimpishly sticking with my trusty black jeans. I am, however, going to ASOS to buy myself a bardot top as we speak!

  8. This outfit is amazing, I love how unique an elegant it is! The off-shoulder top looks really good on you and you're rocking the culottes, I have wanted my own pair for ages but then I doubt they will suit me - well I think I should at least try. :) xx

    1. Thank you, Mira! Such a lovely compliment. You should give the culottes a go, I was quite hesitant about them when the trend raged all around in the fashion world. Tried them once and I've been wearing them so often! You just have to find the right one. ❤︎

  16. I'm obsessed with off-the-shoulder tops at the mo'. Haven't really had a chance to wear them yet, but come summer I'm sure I'll be living in them! Love how you've paired it with a choker too. It does look quite badass ;)

  17. Oh I love that outfit, mainly because it's grey & balck & I live in those colours! How cool that you're making use of an item you bought years ago, you've inspired me to revisit & rethink some of the items I've chosen to give away or throw out! Maybe i can show them some love :)
