Let’s do Culottes

Are they skirts, are they pants? No… they’re Culottes! The perfect happy medium for skirt and pant lovers with the practicality of pants, but the stylishness of a skirt. Culottes date right back to the 1930’s and are basically pants that come to the knee or just below with really wide legs. They are French for ‘knee breeches.’ I’m a pants or tight garment kind of girl so I felt the need to stand a bit more wide legged throughout the night to show they indeed were pants… charming! 🙂  (Hence my weird poses for this post! Ha!)  I can’t say I adore them, but they have grown on me and I can definitely see why they are becoming the next big trend.

How to style them without looking like a boy scout? I find the best way to wear them is with a simple fitted top as I personally wouldn’t feel comfortable wearing loose pants, Culottes and a loose top. A cropped boxy T-shirt for a structured look would also look super cute, but the choice is yours!  With shoes, the bonus is you don’t have to worry about the Culottes bunching around your ankle AND you can really show off you’re footwear. You could wear strappy heels, wedges, ankle boots or some cute slides for a casual weekend look. Hope you enjoy Culotte-ing it out too! 🙂
