How to Wear Culottes

Spring is out the door and summer is in full bloom. But you can’t always wear maxis and sundresses to work, so what are your options?

[Hint: here’s some!]

Enter culottes. You’ve seen women bouncing around town in those wide leg crop pants looking like a carefree Parisian and you probably think…I could never pull those off. Well, ladies, you are simply incorrect. Not only are culottes back, but they are oh so comfy and incredibly functional (hello, pockets!), and anyone can rock them (at work, for ladies’ night or even a night on the town with your hunny).

Culottes are a high fashion item that actually have a healthy dose of history to them. Some claim that culottes were inspired during the Renaissance period, (an item primarily worn by men, hence the term britches). And others assert that the first woman to wear pants dates back to the 1800’s. Regardless of who really inspired culottes, what we do know is the 1970’s were poppin’ with ladies in culottes, and they are alive and well on the streets around the world.

Here are a few ways to style your culottes with some of your favorite items that you likely have in your closet. The best thing about culottes is you can style them with a sexy heel or a flat depending on where you are heading.

 

 

There you have it ladies. You can take a break this summer from the norm of sun-dresses and maxis and try a pair of culottes to keep you feeling a whole lotta cool especially on those cooler, not so summer days.
