It’s official, the culottes pants are a must-have of this spring.
Feel the name culottes and a question mark will appear over your head? Think it’s a pant with a strange cut, that dress like skirt, too short, too flared. The culottes were brought to the catwalk by: Valentino, Hermes, Jil Sander, No.21, Gucci, and Derek Lam. But they’re also wearable off the catwalk and you will see around during this spring will make you want to buy a pair.
What matters is to keep in mind the proportions, weights, volumes. The pants should touch just above the ankle, even sometimes they’re shorter, and should be teamed with a pair of good pair of shoes: high-heeled sandals, mules, twisted ankle sandals. The culottes are particularly comfortable and should be worn in a casual yet chic way at the same time, putting aside the ubiquitous skinny silhouettes.
They’re adapt to wear in different occasions: during the day in neutral colors combined with minimal blouses and oversized coats, in the evening matched with white shirts and high-heeled sandals.
