Cute and comfy, culottes are easy to fall in love with. Not only are they freedom enhancing and ultra comfy; this seasons culottes are made to flatter.
The culottes of 2016 are knee-length or calf-gazing and wide-legged. Don’t confuse them with that miniskirt slash baggy shorts trend from a while back.
A simple styling trick is to wear a tighter top with your baggy culottes - a fitted turtleneck or a skin-skimming cami work well. If you’re going for high-waisted culottes tuck in your blouse or wear a cropped-length top. Here are our five top picks of culottes for all occasions.
