I tried to raise my fashion game by wearing white culottes for a day downtown Athens. They are this season’s hot cropped pants and even though it took me a while to get used to them, I ordered one in white from Missguided.
Culottes is a French word and historically referred to the knee-breeches commonly worn by gentlemen of the European upper-classes from the late Middle Ages or Renaissance through the early nineteenth century.
If you are looking for office trousers with a twist this is your cool summer option. Wide-leg pants have fast become a wardrobe essential.
I am wearing my new white culottes with a black perforated leather Equipment t-shirt top I got from a Nordstrom sale last winter. (I am telling you sales like Net-a-Porter clearance is the right time and place to build your wardrobe… )
However, I would wear also them with flat sandals and stripped top for a summer relaxed look.
My pants has belt loops for adding a belt when wearing a cropped top or a shirt.
Culottes are versatile garments that look pulled together but relaxed… no doubt about that.
