Tatler Style Tips: How To Wear Culottes

Go on and give your wardrobe that much needed update with culottes! They 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 culotte pants? They are like cut off trousers: wide legged pants that usually sit high on the waist and can have a tie around the waist too. 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.

For tips on what shoes to wear, the same rules apply. Pop on some heels for a dressier look and flats and/or sneaks if you want to be casual -- they are all suitable for a pair of culottes.
