Culottes: A guide for the upcoming season

Kendall Words by Chantelle Murray Culottes, the just past knee-length full-bodied pants, took fashion by storm last summer, having been sported by the likes of fashionistas, Kendall Jenner, Rihanna and Katie Holmes, with their voluminous shape keeping any outfit looking interesting and modern. However, the days are soon to be getting warmer once again and if  you haven't been 100% confident in trying culottes yet, we have a couple of tips - it's easier than you realise to wear culottes as long as you stick to a minimalist style and a black, white and navy palette. For a casual but chic approach, pair a white linen tee with navy culottes and white low-line converse. Throw on some round sunnies and a leather jacket and you have your day-time look sussed. A more work-friendly take on the culotte trend consists of a light silk shirt tucked into a black pair of culottes and finished off with a pointy-toed stiletto. This puts a spin on those oh-so-flattering but oh-so-safe straight black pants you always wear. To take it up a notch, brave the crop top. You know you want to. If you find one that fits perfectly with your culottes, you won’t even have to show any mid-section. A fitted white crop with navy and white striped culottes would be a winner. Trust me, you’ll be turning heads. Image sourced from
