Length of my gauchos? (pics)
I am a real TFS fashion victim thanks to the Culottes thread!

I need your opinions please! Should my gauchos be shorter like an inch or two? I'm open to any suggestions until Monday because that's when the gauchos will be finally sewn together. All the jersey gauchos on Ebay seemed to be a little shorter or maybe they only looked different because the models might have been shorter? I'm 175cm tall (5'9).

(the pink ones in the background are her gauchos, she totally gets inspired by me all the time )

thats a beautiful orange san diego, and i dont usually like orange. the best thing you could do is go to your local habedashery and ask one of the assistants, they'll know which dyes are most suited to which fabrics etc

i dont think there is a actual length that gauchos are supposed to be...

i have seen shorter ones (by lamb) and ones that are the same as yours (by dior)

i think they look very nice like that

I thought this belonged in customisations.

wow, i caught up with this thread late...

i got this amazing kelly green sweatshirt at h&m in berlin and it's my favorite
but on a plane my ink pen exploded, and i got a small black dot right in the middle!
i was wearing a pin but i decided i wanted something more unique
so i embroidered this bird on the other day.

the black ink dot is the eye.

i call it dragonbird because when i zip up the hood all the way
it kind of looks like a weird dragon



sorry my photoshop color correcting skills apparently suck!

adorable francesca...well done...
crazy K...i personally think that culottes are most flattering when they come about and inch or two below the knee...but it depends on what shoe you wear....

it's all about proportion...it's like geometry...matching shapes and sizes...
so the width of the culotte, the length of the culotte, your height and the size, shape and height of the heel all need to work together...

i think the length you have is good...but i would never wear those with heels...
only flats or boots...with a pant leg that wide...a high heel is too small and off-balance...imo...well..actually, it's not my opinion...it's kind of a styling rule...
