How to Wear Culottes? It Is A Must-Have Piece!

If you cannot choose between skirts and pants, I have some great news for you. This season, you do not have to! One of the hero pieces to come out of the spring/summer collections is the culotte. Thanks to the genious cut and fluid fabrics, culottes are as comfortable as trousers and as graceful as a skirt.

Check out some stylish outfits with culottes aka skirt trousers. The new trend is cool, versatile and much more comfortable than those skinny jeans we have been rocking for the past few years. However, styling culottes may not be as easy as it seems especially when they fall just above the ankle.

Tackle This Season’s Tricky Trend: Culottes

Time to let loose. From Victoria Beckham to Rita Ora, celebrities prove that chic culottes are back! Want to know how stylish women all over the globe style the relaxed tailoring trend? Here are some tips!

First off, you can style your culottes in a tomboy look or choose to wear them in a more feminine look. Culottes are perfect for the office but only when you choose plain styles made of the high-quality fabrics. Your culottes just cannot look cheap! Oversized and printed culottes are cool but during a brunch with friends, not a meeting with a client. To enhance the professional look, style them with basic white shirt and black heels. You can also try an elegant total look by wearing culottes and a top in the same colour.

Outside the office, wear culottes with a sweater and chunky heels. They key to pulling off the tricky wide-leg, roomy pants is tempering them with slim-fit tops and blouses. Petite ladies should always remember to wear heels so as not to get swallowed up in the must-have culottes.

Culottes are wide-legged, cropped pants that fall somewhere between a skirt and trousers. They can be a versatile and stylish addition to your wardrobe. Here are some fashion tips on how to wear culottes:

Proportions: Since culottes have a wide silhouette, it’s important to balance the volume with a fitted or tailored top. Pair your culottes with a tucked-in blouse, a fitted tank top, or a tailored shirt. This creates a flattering and well-proportioned look.

Length and Fit: Consider the length of the culottes to find a style that suits your height and leg shape. Culottes typically end at or below the knee, but you can also try ankle-length culottes for a different look. Pay attention to the fit around the waist and hips to ensure a comfortable and flattering fit.

Footwear: Culottes can be worn with various types of footwear, depending on the occasion and your personal style. For a casual and effortless look, pair them with sneakers or flat sandals. For a more polished outfit, try heeled sandals, ankle boots, or even pumps.

Top Styles: Experiment with different top styles to complement your culottes. A fitted or cropped top can create a balanced and streamlined silhouette. You can also opt for a flowy blouse or a loose-fitting sweater for a relaxed and bohemian-inspired look. Tucking in your top can further define your waist and add structure to the outfit.

Layering: Culottes can be layered with other garments to create dimension and interest. Try layering with a longline cardigan, a structured blazer, or a denim jacket. This adds versatility to your culotte outfits and allows for different styling options.

Accessorize: Complete your culotte look with accessories that enhance your personal style. Add a belt to cinch in the waist and create a more defined silhouette. Experiment with statement jewelry, scarves, or hats to elevate your outfit. Consider a crossbody bag or a tote to complement the relaxed and chic vibe of culottes.

Belt it Up: Adding a belt to your culottes can help define your waistline and add a stylish accent to your outfit. Choose a belt in a complementary color or a statement belt to enhance your look. This helps to create a more structured and put-together appearance.

Play with Patterns and Textures: Culottes can be a great canvas for showcasing patterns and textures. Try culottes in bold prints, stripes, or textured fabrics. Pair them with simpler, solid-colored tops to let the culottes take center stage.

Remember, confidence is key when wearing culottes. Experiment with different combinations, have fun with styling, and embrace your personal style to make culottes work for you.
