How to Wear Culottes?

The culottes, the right combinations: Wearing the culottes without looking like a badly closed potato sack, possible? Challenge accepted!

Too short, too wide, too old-fashioned, the culottes are not unanimous. And yet, it is essential, again this season. Here are all the keys to finally taming the culottes.

Culottes, THE survivor

Don't ask us why culottes have remained on top of fashion trends for the past few seasons.

We find it hard to understand how the most outdated play of the century can stay in the front row. But it is so.

A star of the 1920s, she has long been the hated partner of schoolchildren. Neither really pants nor really a skirt, the culottes are both long Bermuda shorts and wide capris.

For several seasons, she has enjoyed a mysterious but glorious comeback.

Who are culottes for?

Okay, culottes don't suit everyone. Sure, it's trendy, but just because it was voted the coolest item of the season doesn't mean you have to throw yourself into it like a jar of Nutella.

The culottes do not fit. It compacts and weighs down the silhouette. So, the little ones will think twice before diving in with their heads down.

You just must know how to choose it according to your morphology and wear it according to your style.

The culotte, how to choose it?

First, the length.

To follow the fashion trends: it will be necessary to choose a 7/8 pair of culottes. That is, slightly above the ankle. Either way, we forget the too short or the too long.

The midi skirt length is the shortest you can wear with the culottes.

Since we can never have enough denim, we adopt the denim culottes. These can be found in all departments.

Fashionistas would like to take risks by choosing materials like corduroy or vinyl. The less daring, they will go for flexible materials, easier to wear.

We fell in love with the leather version which, also knows how to make a difference.

The classic culottes

This is the easiest way to wear culottes. A blouse with denim culottes or a fitted sweater.

The little ones among you will put on heeled shoes to elevate your figure. A pair of wedge sandals for the summer and trendy ankle boots for the winter!

The sportswear version of the culottes

Those more comfortable with their style can try the sportswear-version culottes. On the program: sweatshirt, jersey culottes and above all, essentials, sneakers on the feet!

The androgynous culottes

Some would like to adopt the boyish look with the culottes. Wear a man's shirt paired with cotton culottes with a pair of Dr Martens or leather moccasins.

Culottes in an evening look

Culottes enthusiasts will wear it even in the evening. The culottes are adorned with sequins, vinyl, or metallic colours to shine brightly. A white blouse and a pair of heeled sandals will be enough to enhance the ensemble!
