Culottes have gone from fashion-forward to a firm favourite and genuine wardrobe must.
Remember when Jennifer Lawrence wore that pair to the Dior couture show? Since then, we've seen them on the whole Insta-fashion crowd.
And it’s not that surprising. They're an all-year-round, day-to-night, work-or-weekend piece, but we mostly wear them to the office.
They’re the dream summer switch for jeans or trousers as they’re smart, easy-to-wear and cool — and, most importantly, not a leg-showing summer dress. We’ve been wearing ours with sliders but, if that’s not your style, check out the shoes to wear with culottes.
In winter, you can wear them with a pair of boots. Go for ankle boots (always heeled, go for flat boots and culottes and you’ll look like a hobbit) or a longer length pair that leaves no skin showing under the hem.
The high street has a whole range of budget-friendly pairs, from denim culottes to oversized black culottes. Our tip is to go as wide leg as possible, and wear with an unflouncy boxy top or classic collared shirt.
