Anyone else a bit surprised that denim culottes are still around? Admittedly I am but who can’t be a fan of these? If you aren’t already I suggest you become one immediately. They are not what you may think, which if knowing their reputation goes something like this “eh. Really? Culottes? Those frumptastic pants??” Quite on the contrary gals. They might be one of the most flattering pair of denim pieces you’ll ever own. A classic update to the modern pant if you will. These need to graze your ankle and have enough volume so that there is no doubt they are culottes. Always make sure they hit above the ankle, pair with a great shoe (flats, a good stacked heel, a nude wedge, even a great ankle boot will do!)
It’s all about proportions when wearing culottes so keep them balanced out. A fitted button down is great when worn with a stacked heel for the office. Have brunch plans this weekend? Add a flowly cropped top to accentuate your waist and it balances very well with the wide leg. Go with a nude wedge – you’ll look as though you have Gisele’s legs.
This trend might not be for everyone but for those willing to give it a try you’ll love it.
