You are a lucky one, as I am about to share with you best style tips on how to wear culottes on the streets. I am pretty sure there will be no problem for you to copy each one of these looks. Correct me if I am wrong, but do you feel like culottes look like the ugliest trousers in the world? The great paradox is that I do love these bottoms, no matter how ugly they might look. So, what are we waiting for? Let’s have some inspiration!
Culottes are actually not pants, not shorts or skirt, this is something not too short and not long enough. So, what is it and how to wear it? This pretty messy bottom piece is a pretty voguish piece of clothing that looks structured and still messy. They can be an awesome choice for wearing to work, as I love to see professional women wearing them in a quite polished and smart way. They do look chic and individual. You are free to choose their style: go for chic, polished, edgy, messy, casual or sophisticated look.
It’s up to you! Culottes come in million designs, cuts and styles. They look great in silken fabric, as well as in wool. I do love to see women wearing denim culottes with cool kicks and sporty pullover. In other words saying, there is something easy going with these bottoms. You are free to go for a more professional look that is office friendly or make things look casual and laidback. They might look quite tricky to wear, but once you know how to balance proportions, then I think everyone can do this trend.
All you need is to find the right pair and make sure you style them right. What shoes to wear with culottes? Many women ask me if they can wear culottes with flats or with sneakers. My answer is YES, just make sure you have a balanced silhouette. They do look awesome with Oxfords and brogues, I would say a kind of French chic or 1970’s inspired. Make sure to wear culottes with fitted tops and jackets, otherwise, you risk to ruin your silhouette. Speaking of jackets, then keep their length cropped or around your waist.
