When culottes came back in style this year I thought, “No way in Hell am I wearing those again!”
The first time around, when I was about eight wasn’t pretty. They were unflattering even on an eight year old…which speaks volumes as to how these pants can make even the tallest and skinniest look downright schlumpy.
I was 100% sure that there was no way I’d do that trend again…until I was reading a magazine while at the hairdressers and came across these…
You know what they say, “Never say never.”
I like the raw edge on the hem.
So now I’m rethinking the whole culotte idea.
Here are some outfit ideas on how to wear culottes that won’t make you look dated or schlumpy.
I actually think a pair of very wide legged jeans could easily be turned into culottes like this. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled while thrifting.
Looking at this set that handbag is insanely expensive. I could see that someone like Melanie could actually make a better version of this using paint or markers. In fact I’m now on the lookout for a leather or pleather handbag similar when I’m thrifting so I can try to DIY this.
I like this idea of a culotte jumpsuit.
I also really like the culottes when paired with boots…it creates a 1970’s streamlined look.
And maybe my favourite way to wear culottes is Vix here wearing a vintage silk culotte dress. So chic!
I’m still not 100% sold on the idea of culottes, but should I find a pair while thrifting I’d be willing to at least try them on.
Will you be willing to give culottes a try this year?
