We used to call them gouaches in middle school (circa 2007) but culottes are back like they never left.
This super simple, yet chic trend has been popping up everywhere and on everyone. Not so much a style for petites but perfect for the average height to tall woman. The culotte is so very versatile and perfect for any season; spring especially.
How to wear your culottes?
Styling these pants can be very tricky but, I’ve got some ideas up my sleeve. No matter the occassion, you can always be dressed to a T!
Work: Keep it polished and clean. Cullotes are a classy alternative to trousers or even a skirt. Pair them with a classic button up or blouse with a simple pump or blzaer.
Weekend: Go Crazy with bold patterns and colors. Don’t be afraid to mix prints and graphics. Pull the look together with accessories and a staement shoe or bag for an extar pop.
Sunday Brunch: Super soft pastels are the way to go. You can even go monochromatic to make your life a little easier. Add a dainty necklace and maybe even a hat to tie it all together. Mules or flats would be perfect.
Girls Night Out (GNO): Matching cullotes! Can’t find the perfect top? You’re worrying is over. Throw a leather jacket over your shoulders and you’re good to go.
Night Life: Cullote jumpsuit. Wear your highest heels and smallest clutch. Don’t forget your red lip!
Special Event: A soilid cullote with a dramatic cape will keep all eyes on you all night long.
Keeping it Casual: A sneaker is my go-to shoe. A denim button up or cropped tee shirt will keep you looking cool and comfortable.
I’m still looking for a cool pair of cullotes to get me through the spring. I was thinking a pale pink color or tan? I love pastels!
What color culltoes are you rocking this season?
