Outfit of The Day: Bringing Culottes Back!


It's the year of the culottes! The pants that were once popular way before most of you were born (the 60's) is in style once again. Don't you just love when the fashion styles of the past become trendy? For those of you not familiar with what culottes are, they are pants that fit wide to give the illusion of a skirt. The navy culottes I am wearing in the picture above is from Club Monaco. Since culottes can typically fall from the waist, they look great with crop tops, such as the one I paired mine with from Club Monaco or even a sweater. However, if you want to go for a bold look, one can even wear a dress over the culottes to add some dimension to the outfit.



Although culottes are not for everyone, they are a great trend that is worth trying out. And for those that are petite and are concerned about looking overwhelmed,  I would suggest trying different pairs of culottes on since they are not all the same height and will fit differently on. As well, make sure to add a pair of heels to help make the outfit appear more linear and elongate your body. Below are some more images of me in my culottes.





Thank you for reading! I hope you enjoyed this post. 

Are you a fan of culottes or happy that the trend is back?
