All of the sudden, they’re everywhere…that hybrid between full cut pants, and an easy skirt. They hit anywhere from just below the knee, to just above the ankle, and come in fabrics ranging from leather to fluid silk. Yep, you guessed it; the culotte is back! Reminiscent of the 70’s, the culotte is making a comeback, and the look is more modern than ever.
Today’s culottes are versatile enough to be worn casually with a sweater, or more elegantly with a blazer. Designers have been seeding the idea for a few seasons now, and this fall, the culotte is the “it” silhouette to own.
Gucci’s pre Fall collection in 2011 featured culottes with a chunky cable sweater and boots that looks perfect, several seasons later.
Soft and fluid, or in green leather, culottes are the perfect daytime option to a skirt or trousers.
