I’m always late to the party – I admit but guys, I’m not sure I’ll be buying a new pair of full length trousers anytime soon. Honestly, when culottes became a thing last year, I wondered about the mid-calf length and I was too sure it would give me carrot legs but I was clearly very wrong.


Like a wistful reminder of way-back-when and with several other retro-inspired fashion pieces, walking along the streets back in the seventies must have been like the center spread of a vogue magazine. I’m talking mid-calf lengths, extra volume, high waisted trousers of varied textures and…did I say volume already?


Don’t even get me started with how much you can flaunt your footwear in these babies.


I thought to pair mine with a basic A cut top cuz I’m not about to go for lunch and have to suck in my little poochy belly.

However, I like the fact that culottes have the practicality and comfort of trousers but the look of a skirt. I think I’ll get these in maybe black and powder blue…ooh the powder blue will be amazing I imagine.

How else would you style your culottes? Leave a comment below!
