I found these flowy gaucho pants (split skirt, cullottes, whatever you choose to call them) made by the German company Mondi at Value Village. From the label and style it's most likely they're from the 80's. I fell in love with the sailor-style placket and gold button closure, and the multiple pleats that make them swish every which way when I walk. When paired with a striped shirt and a ceramic, metal and silk cord necklace from The Sentimentalist they created an outfit that made me feel rather nautical.
It's a skirt! It's a pair of pants!
