STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Keeping Cool In Culottes

If you’re looking for a classically comfortable item to add to your rotation, I highly recommend getting a pair of culottes. Culottes have gone from an iffy trend to a must have wardrobe staple over the past few seasons. This hybrid piece is the perfect compromise between pants and shorts which allows it to transition seamlessly between your summer and fall closet.

The beauty in a pair of culottes comes from their versatility. They can very easily be dressed up or down depending on the weather and occasion. They also add a heightened sense of style that a cropped pant or midi skirt can’t deliver. As we head into one of the hottest months of the year, this style is an excellent way to stay cool.

The key to wearing culottes is in the pieces you chose to pair them with. It’s important to remember that this culotte jumpsuit isn’t form fitting but when worn correctly it can truly flatter your figure. Culottes really help to add an edgy elegance to your everyday life.

This Fashionista drapes a white crocheted bomber jacket over her shoulder which adds a very classic touch to the look. She pairs this with black lace up heals which help to modernize and highlight the tailored feminine look. The outfit is then completed with a tan suede choker and tortoise colored sunnies which dress up this could be casual ensemble.

What is your STYLE ADVICE FOR THE WEEK? “Some people think that culottes can be too much of a fashion risk. Therefore, a culotte jumpsuit is a perfect introduction to this trend instead of starting out with a jean or trouser.”
