By Akosua Vee – lottes, gauchos, palazzo pants—its all about the new, loose cropped trousers. Styling these pants can be tricky, but we’ve got your back. So whether you’re wearing your culottes on a date, out for brunch on the weekend, or to work (yes, it’s possible) bloggers and street-style stars who have styled the trend in a multitude of ways, from uptown chic to downtown cool.
Most nine-to-fives have shorts restricted on their dress code list, but culottes can be an ideal alternative for summer. When some older styles resurface from the runways, it starts to pour over into the street trends and then eventually to everyday people. Certain trends can be tricky and others take some courage to pursue. Let’s take culottes for instance: the old-school, wide-leg pants that hit below the knee. Yes, they are back and have been back for about a year now.
Lately, I’ve been witnessing these pants get some major action and I couldn’t resist myself. It’s refreshing to see pants from the old time era be the new modern-day bottom of choice. For ladies who have a day job that requires them to dress up a bit, this trend may just fill you in.We all know it’s unbearably hot these days so since shorts are usually not allowed to work,just go ahead and grab a pair of culottes.
Try your culottes to work and share the feeling with me.
Good luck and get inspired
