5 WAYS TO WEAR: CULOTTES

Because taking on fashion’s new favourite trouser trend doesn’t have to be tricky…

1. WITH A SHIRT

Day or night; smart or casual, tucking a shirt into culottes will instantly banish any ‘but I look shapeless’ worries by - add a belt for extra definition. Go fitted when you need to look more polished, and baggier for a relaxed feel.

2. WITH TRAINERS

Contrary to popular belief, heels aren’t essential. While we’d advise against hi-top trainers for leg shortening reasons, slip-on skate shoes are the perfect way to dress down your culottes. Hello, new off-duty uniform.

3. WITH A STATEMENT KNIT

It’s easy to disregard knitwear in favour of something more streamlined on top when it comes to styling your culottes, but you don’t have to . Tuck fine knits in, or try an on-trend ‘half-tuck’ with chunkier styles to define your waist.

4. WITH BOOTS

Nothing gives culottes an extra dose of fashion kudos like teaming them with ankle or knee boots. Not only will this combo keep the chill out in colder months, it creates a seriously cool silhouette. If you want to show some leg, try it with ankle boots but make sure the gap is no more than a couple of inches. Culottes long enough to fall over boots so there is no gap make for the most flattering way to try the trend. We love our snake print knee boots and chic black culottes together.

5. WITH A LONG COAT

For a directional look that doesn’t require hours in front of the mirror to achieve, it’s all about playing with varying lengths. Slip a statement coat over your culottes – make sure it isn’t longer than the trouser hem – and finish off with strappy heels like designer Rachel Roy or timeless courts . Then sit back and let the compliments roll in.
