Culottes|How To Style Culottes <3
So this week I’m here to share with you some interesting styling tips for Culottes (pronounced ku-lots). I’m sure that all of you have witnessed the rage surrounding these calf length billowy pants and even if you did not give in to this rage initially, you might be starting to get comfortable with it now, eh?
I love how they’re super feminine, really comfortable and so ‘airy’, making them perfect for the summer. I too decided to give in to the trend and got hold of my first pair (in black) from the prominent clothing website called ‘StalkBuyLove’.
How To Style Your Pants
Since the pants have a nice flattering flare, it’s best to pair them with a fitted top to add some structure to the look. Personally, I feel that a boyfriend shirt would also look great with them!
Actually they can be worn with literally anything! Wear them with nice pumps and a fitted shirt for a more formal look or wear them with flatforms/flats and a pretty little everyday top to make it super casual. Since the pants are super comfortable, I’ve made them my replacement for my usual sweats. Just pair them with a nice t-shirt/crop top or even a casual shirt and a yummy pair of sneakers to get the look.
Basically, there’s no end to what you can do with these pants. You can get more creative by wearing your pants with a t – shirt and a long cape as well! Basically, think of them as a A-line skirt and think of all the tops that you would wear with such a skirt.
The best thing to do is to invest in a pair of basic ones maybe in black, white or even blue to get yourself comfortable with the trend. The key to nailing the outfit is the shoes. Wearing heels definitely makes the body look more elongated and slim. The best length of these pants is mid – calf as it adds a nice swingy feel to the look. If you are on the smaller side or petite, wear culottes that end just below the knee and feel free to get them slightly altered in length if required.
