It seems you can’t get through a fashion fable without it mentioning the fantastic culottes and their flattering cropped shape. I’ve had these black Asos culottes for several months and have paired them with almost all the tops I own. With these culottes in mind, I decided it was time to get new tops for new pairings. Just to jazz up my mostly t-shirt littered closet, I purchased two American Apparel leotards (black and white). I have a strong fondness for leotards, don’t get me wrong I don’t have dance or ballet lessons ebbed into childhood, I’ve just always loved how leotards hold everything together.

Now, if you don’t mind people mistaking you for being topless from the back, this leotard is perfect as a top for hot summer nights. Showing a little back (or a whole lot in this case) never hurt anybody. Besides, teaming this backless top with conservative pants strikes the perfect balance. Don’t get me started on how much I want to wear this leotard with my flowy midi skirts. It’s all about proportions.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
