Culotte pants, to most of us, sound like a trend that sprung out of nowhere. But guess what? It’s been here for a while. In fact, it is one of those 70s trends that found its way back into the millennial avenues. My first reaction to these pants was that something is off and weird about them.
Now, I wonder what was I thinking? They are super comfortable, incredibly chic if styled well and can be worn just about anywhere as long as you know how to pair them right. Once you get comfortable, there’s no going back. If you are still wondering on how to style these to suit your personality and preference? Look no further. We are just about to discuss that today. Welcome aboard.
How To Wear Culottes
1. Pleated Culottes With A Shirt
Ditch your regular pants to work or an event that demands formal wear and choose these pleated culottes instead. Pair them with a chic shirt like this one, which is both stylish and elegant. You can just wear flat ballerinas if you are not the kind who can do pumps.
2. Black Striped Culottes With A Bold Colored Top
Monsoons can be quite tricky because it’s easy to step on puddles and wet the bottom of your pants. So, how do you deal with it? You guessed it right, a pair of striped culottes with a cold shoulder top or an off-shoulder one can keep it functional, chic and airy.
3. With A Loose Checkered Shirt, Cap And Sneakers
For a sunny afternoon brunch, throw in a pair of bright culotte pants. Team it up with a loose checkered shirt, sneakers, sunglasses and a hat. You can just keep the pants plain and play around with other details.
4. With A Leather Jacket And Floral Top
When you first imagine a culotte, it’s hard to visualize and put things together in your head. But, sometimes it’s just a mix of clothes from your wardrobe and marry it all together. Wear a floral tank, a vibrant pair of culotte pants and throw in a leather jacket. You could wear wedges or just sneakers too.
