Culottes are super comfy, perfect for scorching hot weather because they’re breezy, chic, and look better without a lot of layers. But, what exactly are culottes pants? They are like cut off trousers, wide legged pants that usually sit high on the wasit and can have a tie around the waist.
Modern culotte pants are loose and flowy, with lengths that vary from typically below the knee, to above the ankles. Playing with different lengths can be tricky though, so knowing your proportions is key.
Always cinch the waist. It is only possible to wear wide-legged trousers in any size – or at any size, if that is your worry, by showing off your waist
Give your culottes a trendy summer vibe by pairing it with a cropped top, a simple tank, or if you dare – a bralette.
