How to style/wear culottes

Culottes/short pants have made a comeback this spring-summer and are set to continue throughout autumn-winter 2015 as spotted in Victoria Beckham & DSquared2 AW15 collections.

Culottes are a perfect excuse of showing off your pins and achieving a tomboy. Culottes tend to suit most body types, shapes and give an illusion of a tiny waist. 

Tips on wearing culottes

  • Culottes tend to have the same shape as an A-line skirt, so make sure you balance out the look. 
  • Opt for a midcalf length for tall girls and for shorts girls opt for a pair that fall right below the knee.
  • Culottes looks perfect with heels or pointed flat shoes as they tend to elongate your legs.
  • Wear long loose/wide fit culottes if you’re tall otherwise stick to slim fit culottes.
  • Tuck in your top to define your waist.
