How To Style This Biggest Pant Trend of the Year

DSC07724Flip through nearly every single magazine, fashion site and blog, you will find all sorts of culottes jumping off the pages (and screens). But somehow, I haven’t hopped on the culotte bandwagon till recently. They are chic, they are comfy, and they are tricky. This wide-legged pant style can be quite controversial – very polish or super mumsy (in a bad way). Ahead was my first attempt in styling these pants-of-the-season.

To me, culottes are like a mutated version of midi full skirts. They are as elegant as a midi skirt minus the risk of sudden exposure over an annoying gust. And just like their mid-length skirt counterparts, a pair of black culottes is always fool-proof.

This voluminous pant style offers quite a dramatic silhouette on its own. So simply pair them with a black top, and let your accessories speak for you.  Here, I was wearing a men’s tie as a belt, some mirrored lens sunnies and a bright colour lippie to make the culottes say more `now’ than `frumpy’. Sky is the limit of your accessory game when you have a perfect black `backdrop’.

Oh, and don’t forget to put your best foot forward. This mid-calf cropped length will put the emphasis on your shoes. Try mules or some heeled sandals for brunch, and change into a pair of bright colour/pattern heels for work. Either way, your shoes are going to be in the spotlight!

What do you think about the culotte trend? Yay or nay?

    • Thanks so much for your kind words! Once I started to treat them as midi skirts, the ways to style them are just limitless. I am looking to get more culottes now. 😉
