Trend Alert: Cool in Culottes

Trend Alert

As something that many of us wore in grade school, culottes (French for “women’s wide trousers”) don’t always win admirers in this day and age. My husband, for instance, is not a fan, but as for me? I’m loving my culottes moment. And considering my favorite is a $52 denim pair from the Gap, he should be pleased! The fit is amazing, and it comes in a petite size for my fellow 5’4”-and-under Snobs. The key to keeping the look sophisticated is adding the right accessories: a pointy-toe pump in an unexpected color like SJP’s Fawn 100icon (at Nordstrom for $350) and a grown-up necklace in the style of Givenchy’s sparkly crystalsicon (at Nordstrom for $78). Sophisticated need not be expensive or formal, though, so I also like Madewell’s casual plaidicon (at Nordstrom for $74). Whatever you do, just make sure to leave your skin-tight jeans at home this summer. You can’t breath in them, let alone wear lotion! Throw all the pieces above together, and you get a seasonal uniform that’s stylish and comfortable; and how many trends can you say that about? Check out other culottes below…
