What Are The Culottes

According to Wikipedia it is kind of clothes replacing skirt. But in each country it looks different. In France it was tight fitted trousers finishing over the ankle with the buttons. In England it was pair of trousers wide enough to look like a skirt. Whatever style you prefer you can wear it and call it culottes.

How To Style Culottes

Culottes are actually really nice piece of clothing. It doesn’t restrict you live your life in fullest but still gives you a bit of nice skirt feel. It depends on the length of the culottes what style you choose. I styled more trousers style look, but wanted to show you they can look great for any occasion. Perfect to wear them with trainers and t-shirt or for more work appropriate occasions or as a evening outing. And don’t trust the myth that culottes are only for tall girls.
