The culotte pant arrived in Spring, stayed through Summer, and is definitely here to stay for Fall! It was not only all over the runways but this new "it" pant is definitely a hot trend.
I have to admit, when I first saw the culotte emerge that I wasn't really so sure about the trend. It looks amazing on tall girls, but what doesn't look fabulous on them? (I think I'm tall and I'm only 5'6")
After seeing these culottes everywhere, I decided it was time to give them a chance and try this trend out. The best way to wear it? Go glamorous!
It's an amazing alternative to a flowing summer dress and I resorted for a jumpsuit with lace up detailing. I kept the style flirty with an ankle-strap sandal and didn't want to take away from the bare leg. This jumpsuit is the perfect piece to wear for your next girls night out. The dual spaghetti straps keep it feminine and soft, which is a great balance to the wide-cut pant opening. I added a straw hat, (current obsession) with an over sized tote bag to keep it casual and I have to admit, the culottes made me feel totally cool.
Another way to wear this trend is to style it with crop tops. Since the culottes have a wider silhouette, a fitted crop top will draw attention to your waist and midriff. For all my lovely ladies out there who think this trend is too daring, give it a chance! You'll be surprised by how much you love the look.
Fashion is all about jumping in so this time let's do it one leg at a time!
What are your thoughts on this trend?
