Wait, did I just hear that correctly? That’s right, as if you didn’t think your wardrobe included enough throwbacks already, culottes are back!
Let’s be honest, culottes are a pretty ugly trend to swallow if you don’t know what you’re doing. They were hot in the 60’s and 70’s, but for good reason went out of style. Being as they are incredibly comfortable, & have a very unique look, it is no secret as to why so many A-list celebrities have recently been rockin’ this look again! I decided to step out of my comfort zone, play around with a few shapes, colors & patterns, and finally found the perfect pair for me! They are now my closets prized possession!
Culottes can be worn any time, any day, for any occasion, it’s just a matter of learning how to style them the right way before you take them for a stroll around town. Below, we’ve compiled a list of rules everyone should abide by if they want to make their culottes cool!
How to wear :
– Proportion is key. Make sure the ones you buy are well above the ankle & sit high on your waist for a flattering fit.
– Don’t frump! Show off your middle with a cute crop top, cinched sweater or tuck in a chic tunic.
– If it’s cold outside, don’t be afraid to pair them with a long coat, cape, or stylish blazer. Just make sure your waistline is apparent, or add a belt to accentuate this look!
– Last, a great pair of shoes go a long way with these pants. Stilettos, along with heels in general, particularly ones with an ankle strap look great! They add length to your body and make you appear long and lean! If you’re going for a more casual vibe, bright, strappy sandals or even a great pair of espadrilles would look great!
Everyone knows I love me some crop top action. Culottes have been the perfect bottom to pair with any of my cute crops. I love how versatile they are. They can be dressed down to compliment a chic beachy vibe, dressed up to portray a fashionable professional, or accessorized for a hip stroll around town.
What’s better than a versatile, classic you can wear comfortably all day long and into the night. We got you all set for summer below with a few of our favorite culotte cuts!
