This summer’s hottest trend has graced the runways of Céline and Victoria Beckham and has even been spotted on fashion’s current “it girl” Kendall Jenner. This trend is culottes, the elegant mid-calf pant that anyone can rock. Culottes have been around but are making a comeback as the go-to for a sophisticated look. You can find these pants in various colors, but for this summer light neutrals are the way to go. Paired with the same color top or a printed crop, culottes look instantly high fashion and polished.
Worried you’re a little too short for such a trendy garment? No worries. Try a high-waisted pair with wedges or heels to emphasize the mid-calf hemline and elongate your legs. Anyone can rock this trend just like this Fashionista!
This Fashionista is rocking light nude culottes with a beautiful silk, printed top. The high waistline pairs perfectly with the crop top to keep the look modest yet flirty. Her look is fresh and glamorous with nude tones and a pop of color in the top. The top’s nude background ties in with the pants and makes the outfit look like a complete set. For her accessories, she chose a camel-colored satchel, chunky gold hoops and nude stilettos. This Fashionista perfectly achieves the high fashion vibe of culottes by keeping her accessories neutral with minimal pops of metallic and color. When rocking the culottes look, stick to light, breezy neutrals. To show off your glowing summer skin, add small pops of color.
When choosing your perfect pair of culottes, opt for light neutrals, pick a higher waist if you’re shorter and try rocking wedges or heels to emphasize the mid-calf hemline. Follow these rules and you’re sure to look as classy as this Fashionista does.
