The culottes are originally from Zara and I snapped them up for under a tenner on Depop, I have absolutely fallen for this app - there are so many great things on there at such reasonable prices. Basically, if you're not up to date with the whole Depop thang, it's an app a little like Ebay but 10x easier. You upload your item for sale, a little like you do on Instagram, can message and comment buyers to negotiate and purchase the item of your choice with the quick click of a button - so simple and so reliable and you can spend yonks browsing through the explore page...so if you can't quite pay the high street prices and are patient enough to wait on people to sell their previously loved clothes - then Depop is for you! 

They're a little out there for me and i've had the odd comment like "are your ankles not cold?", "did you buy the wrong size trouser", mainly from boys, (people are lovely aren't they!) but I love them. They add a nice silhouette to an outfit and feel so swishy and light and everyone loves a little flash of ankle really, oh and to annoy people even more, add a really crazy sock to show off as well.
