How To Wear Culottes

SS14 is about to embrace the return of an item that, yes, played a vital part in the Brownie uniform and, yes, may have earned a bad reputation, but rest assured CULOTTES are most certainly going to fight for their rightful place as a versatile and chic staple and we for one are going to support their plight.

First of all let's wipe away the memories of the awkward brown and yellow combination and dream of a chic, sophisticated pair that can created an elegant yet playful look. 

  • Due to their loose fit shape ensure you team with a cropped tee or tuck in a cute knit to create a balanced look. Add a belt to create extra definition.
  • Teaming the culottes with a smart blazer or leather jacket will adopt a more formal, sophisticated approach. 
  • If opting for a pair in block colour add a patterned top or statement necklace to give the outfit a lift.
  • Your footwear choice can range from a pair of chunky boots, chic heels or cute flats depending on the occasion and body shape. For the smaller ladies maybe wear with a heel to give the illusion of a longer leg as the culotte may fall at an unfortunate place. 
How do you feel about the return of the culottes? Have we managed to convince you? If not get in touch we would love to demonstrate in person!!!
