It might be because of this versatility that culottes have made their way through the huge door of our wardrobe, and it’s looking like it will take us a long time to let them go.The most basic culottes are beige
, with an aesthetic that calls the classic chino to mind. From there, you can find all kinds of fabrics, in both monochrome and prints. Other features vary: with darts or completely plain, with a waistband or without, with elasticated detailing and a tie belt or with a button and zip, with a paperbag finish, jeans… What doesn’t change is the high waist and cropped length.
Culottes will be your perfect ally when temperatures start to rise
, because they’ll mean you can create cool, fun looks. Pick flowing trousers with a striped print in light tones. On top, wear a white crop top
with an asymmetric cut and an open shoulder. For your feet, go for some platform sandals
