The Culotte

Hey Guys

The culotte has really taken off in the fashion industry this spring with brands such as Bardot, Witchery and Saba all getting in on the trend.

The culotte or the samurai pants (as my fiance’ likes to call them)  is a French word to describe pants that hang like a skirt.

Culottes have the same structure as normal pants however they flare out towards the bottom making them completely breezy for the warmer months!

They have a relaxed feel but are sophisticated enough to take you from day to night.

The culotte is also extremely versatile; you can dress them down for casual day out, dress them up for a night out or even style them for the office.

I recently styled my culottes for an Interview:

I purchased my culottes from Bardot (you can get them here http://goo.gl/ceFCix).

My tips for wearing culottes:

  • Style them down for a casual day time look with slides, a loose fitting singlet and fedora.
  • Go from day to night by adding heels, a fitted crop and a swipe of red lippy.
  • Make sure they are fitted around the waist so they don’t make you look wide.

With Love x
