Deep Vintage Culottes

Culottes Are The New Black 
Deep Vintage Middlesbrough
Recently made a visit to my favourite vintage shop 'Deep Vintage' which is located in Middlesbrough. I've been shopping with this shop for years & they've recently moved to the new store. So I thought I'd go in a check it out. Plus it was an excuse to get my hands on some vintage bargains. 

If you're following me on twitter (@elliereess) you'll have seen a few months back I made a post about wanting to get my hands on a pair of Culottes as I seen them featured in 'ELLE' magazine. Since then I haven't been able to find a single pair. Until I stumbled across a vintage pair in Deep!

Culottes are longer than shorts and are worn just past the knee, they are a little baggy in the leg so sometimes give the illusion that you're wearing a mid-length skirt. They were popular in the 60's & 70's and are making a massive comeback. Quite a lot of the high street stores haven't picked up on this trend yet, but I'm sure they will are they are perfect for Autumn!

These are the pair that I managed to get from 'Deep Vintage'. They have a gold belt detailing which makes the even more unique from ones on the high street. I love buying from vintage stores as it means you're not very likely to see someone else wearing the same thing when you're out, which is my pet hate! Deep vintage sells a lot of remade vintage items for males & females sold at reasonable prices. I managed to grab these at a bargain price of £19.
